Transportation is just one of many needs that businesses have when they choose Fastfrate. Beyond the shipping of goods, warehousing and distribution are the most crucial components to ensuring your goods are secured and arrive at their intended destination in a timely manner. Throughout our history, we have expanded our reach to include numerous facets and are proud to offer Canadian warehouse and distribution services, along with our other offerings.
Simply put, warehousing is important in serving our customers’ complete requirements. We have over 55 years of experience understanding the in-depth needs of a wide range of industries with warehousing and distribution components. Throughout Canada and the U.S., we have 44 terminals and final mile hubs strategically positioned to cover all of your storage, cross-docking, transloading and distribution requirements.
Keeping your goods safe and secure before it reaches your customers or retailers is an important part of the shipping process. However, simple solutions may not be enough for your business as you seek more advanced capabilities such as detailed reports and inventory management. Our warehouses are equipped with the latest technological advances to make your product’s time in between distributions everything you need it to be.
Our warehouses across Canada are outfitted with gated entries and state-of-the-art security systems, including cameras. In addition, all hubs are operational 24/7 and 365 days a year, meaning you don’t have to worry about lags in information or holiday closures resulting in delays. While inside our facilities, your goods will be kept at an ideal temperature to preserve their freshness and quality. In addition, we have both racked and stacked storage available, depending on the packing and requirements of your goods. From there, we can provide customized reports through our warehouse automation, offering you inventory control and management, whether they will be in our facilities for a short or long-term stay.
When moving goods across the border, certain logistics come into play that might be difficult for warehousing companies to deal with who are used to domestic goods that do not have excess requirements. Due to our expertise in moving items throughout North America, our warehouses are equipped to handle the unique circumstances to ensure your goods are secure before embarking on the final leg of their journey. We are CTPAT compliant, following all necessary protocols to meet the needs of this standard. Additionally, our bonded and sufferance warehouses are capable of holding your goods in case you need to delay duty for any reason.
Moving your goods the final mile or to retailers who carry your products can sometimes be the most detailed and strenuous part of their journey. Not with Fastfrate. Importers, distributors and E-commerce businesses choose us as the lean solution to distribute their goods to retailers and direct to consumers across Canada.
