International Frieight Shipping


International freight Shipping Using 3PL Services

International air freight and ocean freight volumes continue to grow, despite challenges arising from the pandemic, changes in governments, and the implementation of many global import tariffs designed to protect domestic interests. As a result of those challenges, it becomes more important than ever to contract the services of professional international freight shipping companies with the capability of manoeuvring those cloudy waters. NATS Canada is one of the top international shipping companies in Canada, with vast experience in not only ground transportation but also the coordination and delivery of shipping goods across international borders.

Not all international freight companies have the capacity to coordinate cross-border shipping by land, sea and air. Some international freight companies prefer to focus on specific modes of international transport. NATS Canada is a fully licensed and vastly experienced 3PL provider that has built a reputation for providing clients from every sector with safe, reliable, and affordable supply change management solutions related to transport. Whether than means cost-effective delivery service from Canada to the USA or from North America to the four corners of the globe, we have the team of experienced professionals at the ready to handle all logistics including vitally important administration related to proper documentation. Shipping internationally requires strict compliance to ensure shipments pass through export and import procedures smoothly, so that means ensuring certificates of origin, packing lists, commercial invoices, material safety data sheets, and fumigation certificates are in order. It also means understanding each country’s restrictions related to hazardous materials, copyright and trademark infringement, customs regulations and fees, and culturally sensitive materials. In short, it’s better to trust such details to international logistics companies like NATS Canada rather than delegating it to some internal person without the expertise to do the job effectively.


The emergence of intermodal marketing companies that expanded their operation to provide such services as warehousing, packaging, and financial management laid the foundation for today’s 3PL companies. NATS Canada has become an industry leader offering four primary pillars of third-party logistics services:

  • Sourcing of appropriate equipment to make the process of shipping cargo easy for business, manufacturers, construction, automotive and steel companies
  • Supply chain solutions from raw materials and manufacturing to the end customer or consumer.
  • Strong relationships across all relevant sectors backed by top-notch customer service to ensure the most cost-effective, safe and reliable delivery service.
  • In-house logistics management that provides companies with a viable, experienced option rather than hiring their own staff.
