Ordering products from the United States? Many US suppliers will not ship to Canada or charge high international shipping and brokerage fees. PFC-XB facilitates cross-border movements, expedited customs clearance, and final delivery to your door at a competitive rate.

Instruct your supplier to ship your materials to our agent in Calais, Maine (just steps from the USA-Canada border) and let our experienced freight forwarders take it from there.
