Northbound forwarding is the receipt, cross dock, consolidation and delivery of shipments from the United States into Canada. Shipments are first received at a consolidation warehouse where they are placed into an inventory control system. Once a shipment is authorized for clearance into Canada it is consolidated together with other shipments for a specific forwarding client and couriered to the client's location(s) in Canada.
Northbound forwarding allows Canadian companies to save significantly on international shipping fees. Shipments are sent domestically to the consolidation warehouse and couriered into Canada in bulk.
