Jericho, NY, Mar. 1, 2011– Delivering to more people, more places, and more postal codes in Canada; from 10 to 20 markets in the United States and growing globally. Purolator Courier Ltd is now Purolator Inc. and Purolator USA is now Purolator International.

This new name marks the evolution of Purolator from a courier company to a comprehensive logistics service provider focused on delivering Canada fully and sustainably, leveraging the full range of its multi-modal capabilities, while satisfying a broader range of customer needs in a sustainable manner that contributes to the well-being of the communities in which we live, work and operate. 

“We’re proud of our Canadian heritage and of the company we’ve built”, said Mr. Tom Schmitt, President and CEO of Purolator. “Purolator is Canada’s largest logistics company and our current selection of services covers more than our previous legal name embodied. In addition to offering the best-in-class courier services in Canada, our team of more than 11,300 dedicated teammates offers a broad range of logistical services tailored to our customers’ business and personal needs. Purolator Inc. and its subsidiary Purolator International are a reflection of this reality.”

From automated solutions to 24 hour pick up and delivery, Purolator provides customers with the services and customized solutions required to get their parcel and freight shipments across town or around the world. Purolator uses Canada's largest dedicated air express fleet and has an extensive service network, with over 120 operations locations, more than 140 Shipping Centers, more than 550 authorized Shipping Agents and more than 350 drop boxes, handling close to 1.1 million pieces daily.

Purolator International specializes in forwarding and delivering the products of companies based outside Canada to, from, and within the Canadian market.

“This change allows us to combine the strengths of the two divisions so we can offer enhanced air and surface forwarding services to customers, said John Costanzo, president of Purolator International. “At the same time, we will solidify our role as the market leader for services to, from and within Canada.” Purolator International will maintain a headquarters facility in Jericho, NY, with branches located throughout the U.S. and Canada.
