- Deconsolidation & Cross-docking • Rather than shipping internationally from Canada to clients in the U.S., we offer the option of shipping consolidated loads from Canada across the border to our U.S. facilities. We then deconsolidate and deliver the individual shipments to your end consumers around the U.S..
- Flexible Storage Solutions • From bulk storage for stackable cargo to racking system storage for smaller items, Cole International has storage solutions that fit your needs.
- Consolidation (ColePac and ColeCargo) • We will receive shipments from all around the U.S., consolidate them into single cross-border shipments, and arrange delivery from our facility to your location in Canada.
