NRI Distribution has big plans for 2018, specifically expanding into Eastern Canada.  NRI recently announced its commitment to open a Montreal facility in June of next year. 

With operations already established in Western Canada and the United States, it is time to set their sights on the East Coast, and Montreal is NRI’s top pick to set roots in the east.  “We are entering the Montreal market for a multitude of reasons.  Not only are the people and the culture of Quebec in line with our company values, but we feel that Montreal is a great starting point to connect us to the vibrant independent outdoor and fashion retailers and consumers,” said Peter McKenna, NRI President. 

NRI prides itself on superior client service and support.  Having facilities on each side of the country means they will be able to offer the best possible service to clients across Canada on a more local level.  In addition to Canadian growth to better serve those looking for an eastern distribution point, NRI anticipates increased European interest with the new Canada-European Trade Agreement (CETA) making 98% of EU tariff lines duty-free for Canadian goods. 
“Having a facility in the eastern half of Canada will better service our existing and future European clients”, said Ryan Dale-Johnson, Director of Accounts. “Additionally, we will be offering an operation that will provide both a great location for all our clients’ direct to consumer business, as well as offering a fantastic consolidation point for large multi-door retailer warehousing in the east.”
NRI is a 3PL with a consultative approach – providing scalable, variable-cost solutions to aspirational lifestyle brands across all channels of e-commerce, wholesale, retail and reverse logistics with over 800,000 sq.ft. of warehouse space in Western Canada and Southern California.
