UCanTrade, Inc. Provides Cross-Border Business Support
By: Elliott Smith
UCanTrade, Inc. / UCanTrade.com provides cross-border business support services for Canadian businesses selling products in the United States. UCanTrade also provides business support for Canadian companies making equipment acquisitions in the US or moving inventory northbound across the border.
Cross-Border Business Support

From our 60,000 square foot facilities in the Bellingham area, UCanTrade offers complete order fulfillment business support services for Canadian e-tailers. Shipping individual orders across the border is expensive, due to international shipping rates and customs compliance costs. UCanTrade eliminates the cost of selling to US customers by providing business support with bulk importation and pick and pack order fulfillment. We work with your company and your customs broker to bring large quantities of your inventory to our warehouse in the United States, conveniently located only 15 miles from the border. When a US customer places an order with your company, UCanTrade will receive your instructions electronically, and then pick, pack and domestically ship to your customer, eliminating international shipping charges and border delays. Another component of UCanTrade's business support program for Canadian e-tailers is our return services handling and reverse logistics. If a customer needs to return an item, UCanTrade can process that return on your behalf, again saving on international shipping charges and import/export paperwork hassles.

UCanTrade also offers cross-docking for Canadian businesses making equipment or inventory acquisitions in the United States as part of our suite of business support services. With favorable exchange rates, Canadian entrepreneurs are finding the climate ideal for purchasing in the US. Many US suppliers will offer low cost or free delivery to addresses within the US, but charge expensive rates for international delivery to Canada. UCanTrade can support business purchases by Canadian companies by receiving delivery of items acquired in the US, and storing them securely at our warehouse. You then send your truck from Canada to our conveniently-located warehouse in Ferndale, Washington to retrieve your items, or UCanTrade can arrange for cross-border delivery with one of our trusted shipping partners. Either way, you'll save money by taking advantage of lower domestic delivery rates from your suppliers, with UCanTrade's cross-docking business support services.

Another key business support service UCanTrade provides is a USA Business Identity for Canadian entrepreneurs. Experience has shown that US customers buy with greater confidence from a company with an established business presence, which UCanTrade provides as part of our business support package.

For over 28 years UCanTrade, Inc. has been the leader in business support services for Canadian companies doing business in the United States. Call today to find out how UCanTrade can help your Canadian company operate profitably south of the border!
