The Canadian arm of global logistics service provider DHL Express and the U.S. Department of Commerce have launched a joint trade initiative aimed at matching Canadian and American firms looking to do business on both sides of the border.

Through the partnership, DHL Express Canada and the U.S. Department of Commerce will match DHL customers in Canada with U.S. manufacturers or sellers who are already exporters or who are interested in reaching markets in the U.S.

The partnership is designed to provide benefits both to U.S. companies seeking new contacts in Canada, and to DHL customers looking for advice on exports from the U.S. specific to their industry, valuable leads, and marketing information.

“This is an important opportunity for our customers in Canada,” DHL Express Canada commercial head Andrew Paul said in a statement. “Through the Global Buyers Initiative, companies in Canada can link up with U.S. suppliers specific to their field, attend influential trade shows … to meet potential buyers and distributors and receive support on international sales and marketing, as well as U.S. government financing and other programs. These new trade-related resources will be valuable business tools for companies of all sizes.”

The new partnership combines the commerce department’s extensive knowledge of U.S. manufacturers and suppliers and international trade with DHL’s international expertise and extensive customer base in Canada, Paul added.
