How to drop ship to Canada

With Frontier CAN-SHIP

Learning how to drop ship to Canada has never been easier for both U.S and Canadian based companies. Frontier’s CANADA-SHIP program provides some of the shortest transit times from the U.S. Midwest, lowest rates for shipping into Canada, and ease of services throughout the process.

How our drop ship service (CANADA-SHIP) works:

When the shipments arrive in Itasca, the package’s tracking data is entered into our tracking program which provides visibility on our website.

Your product is then transported overnight from Itasca to one of our Canadian induction centres (Winnipeg, MB & Toronto, ON). From here, the product will be then shipped directly to the Canadian receiver.

Occasional Imports?

Occasionally importing from the states can be an expensive and complicated experience. Our CANADA-SHIP program allows you to drop ship prepaid parcels to our U.S. induction centre. From there, we ship directly to Canada, clear customs and distribute. Providing these collaborative services allows us to offer lower rates than other cross-border shippers.

Frequent imports?

Do you experience high brokerage fees and shipping costs as a result of your parcel or LTL shipments being cleared separately? Our CANADA-SHIP program avoids these costs by consolidating your LTL or parcels into one shipment and clear customs once

Whether your shipping needs are frequent or infrequent, Frontier’s CANADA-SHIP program is able to get your product into Canada in a way that works for you. Partnering with us will give your Canadian or U.S. based company a competitive advantage due to our simple, fast and cost-effective strategies.

Why our drop ship service works?

Collaborative Services

Our expertise in logistics and brokerage ensures timely release to decrease costly border delays. Once your products have cleared customs they will be transported to our strategically located cross-dock facilities for increased transportation speed into Canada. After they are cross-docked we ship directly to your customer for final delivery. Overall our CANADA-SHIP program saves your organization valuable time, which allows you to better serve your customer’s needs.
