Canada Cartage division Direct2Home wins BC contract

Direct2Home, a division of Canada Cartage, enhances British Columbia footprint through expanded western contract with large home improvement retailer

Online PR News – 07-June-2013 – Toronto, ON – Canada Cartage announces service expansion in British Columbia with new home delivery contract. On June 2nd, Canada Cartage will expand their service offering with one of their clients to include an additional 26 stores in the western region, from 126 to 152 stores, a significant 21% increase.

Canada Cartage provides outsourced fleet services for store-to-customer home delivery of products such as lumber, shingles, windows, and other home renovation products. Trucks and drivers carry the familiar colours of their client, but are provided and managed by Canada Cartage.

As the customer’s supply chain needs changed, they were looking to consolidate their home delivery service from several suppliers into one channel. Canada Cartage’s size, professionalism, willingness to acquire personnel and fleet along with their breadth of experience, made them the preferred supplier.

“We are delighted to expand our long term partnership with one of our major clients as they increase their home delivery service offering to their customers.” Says Paul Dunn, Vice President of Direct2Home. “Our focus for the first few months is managing their crucially important peak season with a complement of experienced drivers and expanding fleet. After that, we will look at improving existing processes to ensure we are operating at optimum efficiency.”

“There are a lot of synergies between our two companies and with this expansion we further solidify a mutually beneficial long term partnership” he added.
