Purolator Courier Ltd. launches new U.S. Deferred Service

by Canadian Shipper

Purolator Courier has introduced a new and improved U.S. Deferred Service offering ground transport shipping from all points in Canada to all points in the U.S.A.

The enhanced service provides Purolator’s customers with more choices when shipping packages to the United States.

“Our new enhanced U.S. Deferred Service is a valuable addition to our easy, convenient and reliable overnight services,” says Bob Johnson, President and CEO of Purolator Courier Ltd. “We’re committed to providing our customers more flexibility to do business south of the border and fulfill their U.S. shipping requirements.”

The service is new throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and has been enhanced for Ontario and other locations where the service is already offered.

The new service provides an alternative to overnight service shipments and allows customers to ship packages by truck from anywhere in Canada to anywhere in the U.S.. Benefits of the enhanced service include competitive transit times and rates, fully traceable shipment information within Purolator’s system and seamless delivery of packages across borders. The service is suitable for customers with non-urgent package delivery requests and is ideal for 2-7 day delivery requirements.

The improved service now offers customers the following features:
 Pick up from the most points in Canada
 2-7 day Deferred Service from the point of induction
 Door to door delivery to anywhere in the U.S. (excluding Hawaii and Alaska)
 Fully traceable packages within Purolator’s system and Proof of Delivery (POD) information

The U.S. Deferred Service provides Purolator customers with the convenience of using one courier for all of their shipping needs including one pick up, one invoice, and one tracking system.

Customs procedures have been simplified with the improved U.S. Deferred Service. Electronic customs clearance begins while shipments are enroute. Brokerage Service is available and automatically included for deferred shipments valued at less than $200 (excluding controlled or regulated goods) so customers can choose between Purolator’s broker or their own to clear shipments.

The service is available via Purolator’s automated shipping applications including Online Shipping, Purolink software and the Purolator Shipping System.

More information on the U.S. Deferred Service and all standard customs forms are available at www.purolator.com.
