FULFILLMENT
Shipwire Adds Warehouse in Canada (Vancouver Warehouse & Toronto Warehouse)

February 14, 2008

Shipwire is removing another barrier to retailers selling merchandise in Canada with the launch of two distribution centers in Canada: Vancouver Warehouse and Toronto, Ontario Warehouse. The Vancouver facility is Shipwire's newest distribution center in Canada and joins existing Canadian distribution center in Toronto.

Importing into Canada couldn't be easier with two warehouse ready to receive inventory in Canada.

With a few clicks on Shipwire.com, retailers and their customers can seamlessly place orders through the retailer's existing e-commerce website. Shipwire then automatically determines the best warehouse to ship the order from — either Los Angeles, Reno or Chicago warehouses in the USA or Vancouver or Toronto warehouses in Canada.

Gone are the customs delays, cross-border tariffs, and international shipping fees that have kept retailers from being more competitive with e-commerce fulfillment in Canada. For Merchants optimizing inventory from all Shipwire warehouses in North America 1-2 delivery can be had for the price of cheap, local ground shipping.

The benefits are double for companies importing products from Asia. Containers and freight can be received directly into Shipwire's warehouses in LA and Vancouver, further cutting the cost and hassle of moving products between the US and Canadian markets.

Getting started is easy. Monthly fees for the starter service are just $29.95. There are no contracts, no hidden fees, and businesses can cancel at any time. And retailers who want to test the waters can visit www.shipwire.com to sign up for a free trial.
