    How does it work?

    Step One - Get in Touch

    Before we start providing 3PL services for you, we want to get to know your business and what matters most to you and your customers. We’ll discuss your needs and help you to see if our services are right for you, for example:

    • Do you want us to provide kitting services?
    • Are you insured or shall we take care of this for you?
    • Who will cover packaging costs?
    Step Two - Start your trial

    We typically suggest a 60-day trial so you can be sure we’re the right 3PL provider for you before committing to a contract. After 60 days, we can assess and are both free to terminate the contract or evaluate terms after this period.

    Step Three - Send your products to us

    Once we’re aligned on your needs, all you need to do is arrange for your products to be shipped to us from the factory and your orders to come to us from your ecommerce platform. We’ll take care of the rest! We:

    • Receive your inventory and log it into stock
    • Safely store your goods in our 13,500-square-foot heated storage facility (or our outdoor storage facility if more suitable)
    • Receive your ecommerce orders
    • Pick and pack your orders
    • Ship them to your customers (often the same day as the customer places the order
    Step Four - Watch your business grow

    You can sit back and relax safe in the knowledge that all your storage, packaging shipping and returns are taken care of. Sound simple? It is! We help to take the headache out of business logistics and allow you to focus on what really matters, growing your business.

    Case study - Teacher’s Crate saved time and money with Red River Freight

    As a third-party logistics company based in a border town, Red River Freight were perfectly positioned to enable Canadian-based Teacher’s Crate subscription service to save time and money on storage, assembly and cross-border shipping.

    Teacher’s Crate is a Canadian-based subscription service with a mostly US customer base. They were looking for a way to reduce their overheads, save time and speed up the delivery process.

    As a third-party logistics company based in the border town of Pembina, N.D., Red River Freight is perfectly positioned to enable them to save money and time on cross-border shipping.

    We suggested a 3PL and kitting service. This allowed Teacher’s Crate to have their inventory delivered directly to us from their US manufacturer (thus saving on custom fees) while still allowing them to visit and check on their inventory with ease.

    Our kitting service enabled them to ship their entire product order to us, safe in the knowledge that we would receive their products and boxes, separate them, arrange them into kits and then ship them directly to their customer base. All without them having to pay for storage, assembly staff and tariffs on cross-border delivery.
