1, 2, & 3Day Ground Shipping, Why It’s So Crucial

by CLWA | Warehousing
1, 2, & 3Day Ground Shipping

In Western Canada, people are used to purchasing items online and getting them from the warehouse in a short amount of time. Due to the fact that we can now gain instant access to movies, music, and video games, we have become accustomed to short wait times for distribution. Even with a click of a button, we can have beer, wine, liquor, and any alcoholic beverage delivered to our door within minutes.

To run a successful business, we need to have happy customers. In order to make that happen, we need to have low/ free shipping and quick delivery. In Vancouver, British Columbia 3PL Warehousing and Trucking have been a key part of this success.

Smaller companies tend to use a single 3PL warehouse since they would only have one fulfillment center, for their co-packing and repacking needs. It becomes difficult for them to match the offers of Amazon. This is why it is important for any third-party logistics company that they use, whether is for cross-docking, trans-loading or third party warehousing that it is located close to the area that they are servicing so it can help with the shipping times.

The CWLA is a community of like-minded warehousing & supporting companies. We can help you generate leads, stay informed with industry news, regulations, & upcoming events. Our association is open to all warehousing, trucking, co-packing, or fulfillment providers. Please contact us if you have any questions.
