BLAINE, Wash. — DHL Danzas Air & Ocean, the logistics arm of DHL, has established a brokerage facility in Blaine, Washington on the U.S-Canadian border.
The move was made to support the fast-growing trans-border trade in the Pacific Northwest.
The Blaine facility adds to DHL Danzas Air & Ocean’s more than 60 brokerage operations in the U.S. and is the 18th port of entry along the Canadian border. It complements an existing station in Surrey, B.C. on the Canadian side, thus providing businesses operating in the Pacific Coast Highway corridor with full northbound and southbound coverage for their shipments and documentation.
“The opening of the Blaine office is a milestone in our continued expansion along the U.S. Northern Border, and it underscores Canada’s unmatched importance as a U.S. trading partner,” said Carol J. Sheldon, Vice President of Imports, North America, DHL Danzas Air & Ocean.
“Canadian exports account for more than half of our import entries into the U.S. As the trade continues to grow, DHL Danzas Air & Ocean will continue to expand and enhance its already-strong presence along the border.”
The office is located at #1-14th Street, Unit 8, Blaine, WA 98231-3589, Phone: (360) 332-1963, Fax: (360) 332-1970.
In the United States, DHL Danzas’ brokerage operations operate under the name of Danzas AEI Customs Brokerage Services. Earlier this year its customs brokerage and forwarding operations certified as full participants in the U.S. Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) program.
