JERICHO, NY – Purolator International is adding three branches during the first quarter of 2013, bringing its total number of branches to 33.
Purolator opened another seven new branches during 2012. Offices are scheduled to open soon in Columbus, Newark and Phoenix. The company’s on-going addition of regional office expansions is indicative of the surge in demand for logistics experience and expertise in transporting goods between the United States and Canada.
“Purolator International is focused on opening new locations across the U.S. in the top markets for trade with Canada,” said John Costanzo, President of Purolator International. “Canada is currently the United States’ largest goods trading partner with 19.0% of overall U.S. exports going to Canada in 2011. Purolator offers unmatched service options, border clearance expertise, and understanding of the Canadian market.”
“Purolator’s growth comes at a time when U.S. business is increasingly looking to Canada as a source of new customers and economic opportunity,” said Purolator Vice President for Field Sales and Service Quality John Sweeney. “Near shoring, the returning by U.S. companies of their operations to nearby or neighboring countries brings outstanding opportunities to Purolator.”
U.S. goods and services trade with Canada totaled over $680 billion in 2011. Exports totaled $337 billion; imports totaled $343 billion. A recent survey by international business consultants AlixPartners found that 42% of senior executives have already taken steps to near shore manufacturing operations or plan to do so within the next three years.
