We are a small sme who export internationally from a warehouse based in Leamington Spa, midlands. We are having difficulties regarding exporting to Canada for reasons of duty clearances as well as finding the cost of transport to and throughout Canada, very expensive. Can you recommend a fulfilment centre within canada (east or middle) who we can contact. The goods are ladieswear with normal associated weights and sizes.
Hi Jon: I’m a Trade Office at UK Trade & Investment Canada based in Toronto. You can see a membership list at the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association www.ciffa.com. If you drop me a line at Gilda.Carbone@fco.gov.uk I can also send you a list of Canadian shipping companies – the list hasn’t been updated in a while, but most will likely still be valid. Also, we are orgnaising a coupel of webinars on doing business in Canada inlcuding covering topics around exporting to the market. If you can send me your details, I’ll keep you posted once dates are confirmed.
