For those shipping higher parcel weights or LTL shipments Sameday Worldwide is competitively priced and savings range from 11% on parcel levels to a high of 37% at LTL levels compared to market competitors.  Sameday also provide expedited service to western Canada (4 days Vancouver) and a Canadian air freight service.

Consider parcel consolidation to major Canadian cities via Sameday and redistribution via a small parcel carrier.

 

Enjoy the best of both worlds and utilize the savings offered by these carriers.  Ship Canpar and enjoy significant savings on parcel shipments.  Ship Sameday for heavier parcel and LTL shipments and enjoy expedited service and meaningful savings.  Both carriers provide superior service supported by track and trace.  A sampling of pricing is outlined below:

A.N.Deringer recently introduced as a participant to the transportation program offers years of experience in northbound and southbound transportation. Customs brokerage savings and the ability to consolidate northbound and southbound US/Canada shipments has great potential in addition to their ability to offer competitive LTL service to or from Canada and all major US points. Use your own Fedex or UPS account or utilize Deringer’s accounts with these companies to enjoy meaningful savings on parcel shipments to or from the USA.

 

 

We encourage you to explore these opportunities.

June 17th - HST seminar

An Invitation to attend HST Seminar from Sun Glow Window Covering Products of Canada:

The Harmonized Sales Tax implementation is now under a month away and most small business operators are still unfamiliar with the variety of opportunities and pitfalls that are coming this summer. Companies should be taking steps now to ease this transition; but most of us lack the expertise that is so crucial to successfully navigate these new regulations.

For this reason, Sun Glow our Supplier Member is hosting a FREE presentation by Greg Kanargelidis - Partner with Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP. If you're not able to attend this seminar and have specific questions you want to ask Greg Kanargelidis who practises in all areas of commodity tax law, with primary emphasis on the federal GST, HST, and provincial sales taxes imposed by most provinces within Canada, please email info@mysunglow.com and/or info@idrcanada.org

June 17th: 9:30am - 1pm,

Lunch compliments of Sun Glow 50 Hollinger Road, Toronto ( DVP & Eglinton) RSVP: recep@mysunglow.com or 416-266.3501
