Newgistics has partnered with Landmark Global for its expert brokerage services, logistics reach, and longtime partnership with Canada Post to ensure Canadian customers have a positive shipping experience when purchasing U.S. goods online or via catalog. High international shipping costs and the complexity of shipping to a foreign country have historically presented barriers to U.S.-based retailers and e-Commerce merchants looking to expand to Canada. Newgistics’ new Canadian shipping service simplifies the process and eliminates these concerns, enabling merchants to tap into a new market hungry for American goods and to provide a positive customer experience that drives repeat purchases and customer referrals. Newgistics’ technology platform simplifies the complex logistics that have previously made shipping to Canada difficult for merchants, including duties on deliveries, taxes, receiving returns and customs clearance requirements.

  • Competitive transit times at cost-effective rates: Canadian consumers can expect 3-7 day delivery to all Canadian provinces and territories. Outgoing parcels ship through Newgistics’ centralized distribution centers, where parcels are transferred to Landmark Global. Following customs inspection, Canada Post will make the final delivery.
  • Better customer engagement with branded marketing messages and customer websites help merchants reach customers in new ways. Newgistics’ Transit Triggers allows merchants to send personalized messages to consumers based on specific actions. For example, if a consumer makes a return, the merchant could send a coupon for a future purchase to try to recapture the sale.
