Pakedge Brings New Delivery Options to Canada

Pakedge has debuted its Easy-Delivery Service for Canadian dealers that eliminates brokerage/duty fees and the requirement that a dealer needs to personally accept a shipment of the company's networking products from the U.S.


Canadian resellers can experience the seamless process of a quick and easy product delivery, along with the benefits of lowered overall costs with the Pakedge Easy-Delivery Service.

Pakedge is simplifying and enhancing the logistics process for Canadian dealers and integrators with the new Pakedge Easy-Delivery Service.

This new service provides two major benefits:

1. A simplified delivery experience: Dealers no longer need to be present during the equipment delivery to pay their brokerage and duty fees. The equipment can be shipped directly to the job site instead of to the dealer location.

2. Elimination of brokerage and duty fees: Pakedge will absorb those fees so that dealers can save on costs.

Previously, all Canadian Pakedge resellers had to pay a brokerage and duty fee when receiving their shipped equipment from the United States. That meant waiting around for a delivery truck to arrive while having a credit card at hand. Now under the Pakedge Easy-Delivery Service, Canadian resellers can experience the seamless process of a quick and easy product delivery, along with the benefits of lowered overall costs.

The new service comes a month after Pakedge launched its Will Call Service, which allows integrators to stop by the manufacturer’s Hayward headquarters to pick up their equipment directly on the day of the order. These new services are part of Pakedge’s focus on reseller success—one of the company’s “five tenets” or values it seeks to uphold.

“Our Canadian dealers are an important part of our business,” says Nick Phillips, vice president of sales at Pakedge. “They have asked us to help them remain agile and competitive against internet-based and local suppliers of non-Pakedge solutions. With our Easy-Delivery Service to Canada, we removed logistical and financial obstacles associated with cross-border purchases. Our dealers can enjoy the same seamless experience as if they were buying within Canada.”
