Purolator USA has announced the opening of a new full-service processing facility in the Cleveland area that offers comprehensive cross-border logistics services and global supply chain solutions for businesses that ship to and from the Canadian market. Purolator’s new facility, located at 220 Eastview Drive in Brooklyn Heights, services businesses throughout the northeastern Ohio region, including Cleveland, Canton and Akron, as well as businesses located in western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh. In addition, the facility services Canadian businesses that ship from Canada to the region.

“We are thrilled to have a physical presence in the Cleveland area at a time when regional businesses are starting to grow again, and are increasingly looking to Canada as a potential source for new customers,” says Donna Thomas, branch manager of the new Purolator facility. “We’ve already heard from several businesses that are interested in the Canadian market, and want to ensure they have a logistics partner on their team that understands the Canadian market, can take care of all Customs and border clearance issues, and guarantee on-time delivery to their Canadian customers. Because of Purolator’s expertise and deep ties to Canada, we are able to fill that niche for regional businesses.”

Purolator USA Inc. – a unit of Purolator Courier Ltd., Canada’s largest overnight courier provider – says it offers expertise in moving shipments through the U.S. and Canadian border clearance processes, and is a participant in “trusted shipper” programs that allow shipments to arrive at the border already cleared for entry. “Reliable access to and from the Canadian market is extremely important right now, as businesses look to get back on their feet without having to worry about logistics costs breaking the bank,” Thomas says. “Businesses will find that Purolator is a welcome addition to their team, and that our primary objective will be to offer comprehensive logistics solutions that meet their needs, at a cost that fits comfortably within their budget.”
