Shipwire Canada Warehouse Distribution Promotion

This promotion is now closed. Please contact Shipwire sales to discuss getting started in Canada.


In preparation for Christmas season, Shipwire has completed a major upgrade of our Canada warehouse distribution facilities. The upgrade consists of enhanced features for better inventory control, and more pick pack functionality (more about this soon). Needless to say, we are excited about helping merchants import into Canada. We currently have a special offer for new merchants that store inventory with us in our Canadian warehouse facilities, in either of our Toronto, Ontario warehouse or Vancouver, British Columbia warehouse.

Get up to $1,000 in rebates, by using Shipwire Canada between now and November 15th, 2009. Contact Shipwire. Here is a document on Importing to Canada and our Canada Warehouse.

    Hey Eric, I'll have somebody from the accounts team reach out to you. We've got quite a number of Canada merchants that do what you are thinking about. Some factors that can impact is whether the goods are manufactured in Canada verse overseas. If overseas, you can direct import into the U.S. If locally in Canada its good to see the impact of NAFTA. Also, if manufactured in Canada, your local economic development office wants you to get into Export. These can be a great resource to help you do everything from figure out export to set up meetings with potential buyers. Hope that helps. Nate

    Hi Nate, I wish to sell high performance cycling equipment from Canada to the US. What can you tell me about some of your clients in Canada who export to the US and use Shipwire. How do they compete against US based retailers given duties, taxes and high transport costs? Thanks and regards, Eric Schmadtke
