Freight Forwarding

Moving your goods - and your business – forward together

Expediting international and domestic shipments

After Horace W. Robinson left his customs brokerage business to his son-in-law, John Herbert Cole McCubbin in 1943, McCubbin’s next step was to expand freight services to meet the growing needs of his customers. From humble beginnings in a warehouse in Thunder Bay, McCubbin laid the groundwork for what was to come: Cole International’s Freight Forwarding department.

Fast forward to present-day, and Cole International is a trusted and experienced freight forwarder keeping thousands of businesses moving around the world. Our decades-long experience with ground, rail, air and ocean freight forwarding allows us to provide freight forwarding solutions no matter how unique your business’ needs.
