Over the past 18 months, Orgill Inc. has invested significantly in its Canadian distribution network and infrastructure to provide greater service and flexibility to its growing customer base throughout the country.

Last August, less than one year after the purchase of the Chalifour distribution facility in London, Ontario, Orgill announced the purchase of a new distribution centre in Post Falls, Idaho, with the primary goal of improving delivery times and reducing freight costs to western Canada. Orgill successfully launched its first phase of operations from the northern Idaho facility last week, shipping to customers in certain regions of British Columbia. While Orgill originally planned to service British Columbia and Alberta from this facility, Orgill has now announced an expansion of the coverage area.

“When the distribution centre becomes fully operational in April, we will also service our Saskatchewan customers from Post Falls,” says Ron Beal, Orgill President, Chairman and CEO. “We’re thrilled that customers from all three western provinces will be able to benefit from faster delivery times and reduced freight costs.”

The majority of customers throughout western Canada will be serviced by Orgill Canada trucks with dedicated Orgill drivers. Customers in British Columbia will receive their deliveries within two days of their orders filling and trucks will service Alberta and Saskatchewan customers within three business days of their orders filling.

“This is significant because it means that these customers can count on a consistent, pre-scheduled time of delivery with a driver they know,” explains Randy Williams, Orgill General Manager of Distribution. “It also means that the product will be delivered in a heated trailer to minimize any potential freezing or weather-related damage.”

By delivering to customers in western Canada more efficiently, service times and costs should continue to decrease substantially.

“We are anticipating a very strong Canadian presence at our upcoming Dealer Market in New Orleans where we will be showcasing our entire offering of Canadian-focused products, programs and services,” says Beal. “We will also have members of our London, ON and Post Falls, ID operations and logistics management teams on hand to meet with customers, answer questions and discuss the enhancements we continue to make to improve our Canadian distribution network.”
