An ICAT Logistics Case Study

Creative Product Displays

One Call (The Problem)

A retail client needed to ship Point of Purchase displays to the pharmacy section of grocery stores in Canada from the United States.

Right Solution (The Solution)

These shipments could have been done by trucking the displays across the United States and making border entries at various points into Canada. However, our research indicated that this would incur tariffs at each point of entry for the 250 displays, at a cost of $125 per display, for a total cost of $31,250.

…DONE! (The Results)

By bundling the displays into one package and sending them to Toronto as three truckloads, our client only paid less per truckload and incurred less tariffs, for a savings of more than $30,000. Deliveries were coordinated across Canada from there saving the client time and money.
