Expansion of Purolator International

In a recent story, Post and Parcel noted that Purolator, Canada's largest parcel carrier is about to double its presence in the United States and operate under a new name Purolator International.   Over a year ago, this Blog posted a list of the U.S. markets that Purolator served for service within the United States.  They were as follows

  •  Buffalo, NY
  • Dallas-Fort Worth, TX
  • Itasca, IL
  • Los Angeles, CA
  • Farmingdale, NY
  • Philadelphia, PA
  • Raleigh-Durham, NC
  • Seattle, WA
  • Taylor, MI
The new service page lists a tenth market, Cleveland Ohio.   With this addition, it is clear that Purolator is back-filling among northern U.S. markets and there are a number of obvious locations in New England, Wisconsin and Minnesota. in addition to additional locations in the states where it already has one distribution hub.   In addition, its presence in North Carolina and Texas that its expansion will also move toward southern manufacturing and distribution centers that have operations or customers in Canada as well as within its other U.S. markets.
