FreightCenter announced today that it has expanded its freight service offerings to include cross-border and intra-Canada transportation. The new offerings consist of customs clearance services, improved less-than-truckload rates and transit times, and more carrier choices.
Earlier this month, the company reached an agreement with Canada-based customs brokerage, Willson International, which helps shippers prepare required paperwork and process duty fees for customs clearance between the U.S. and Canada.
“Service expansion to Canada is a vital part of our overall North American strategy and future growth. Willson International will be a great addition to our network of partnerships with leading freight service and technology providers,” said Matthew J. Brosious, CEO of FreightCenter.
When booking a shipment to or from the U.S. and Canada, FreightCenter customers can choose Willson as the preferred customs broker or choose their own. Although customs clearance procedures are handled by this third-party, the partnership with Willson allows for a seamless cross-border shipping process.
Anticipating a high demand for cross-border freight services, FreightCenter has pre-established volume-discounted rates, reduced transit times and added service options with freight carriers that service all of North America. Shippers can review customs requirements, as well as quote, book and track LTL and truckload shipments online at our Canada freight shipping page or by phone at 1-844-212-SHIP.
