JORI Logistics’ staff are always ready and willing and able to give me what I need to know, and they always respond in a prompt manner. Without JORI we wouldn’t get our product across the border in a timely manner. Their staff are knowledgeable and efficient. Jackie always answers promptly, and if there’s something she can’t help me with she points me in the right direction. Everything they do helps me.

JORI helped us expand to the US. I value Shane’s speed when we have multiple aircraft coming and going north of the border. Sometimes we only give Shane 24 hrs notice on big jobs, but he gets it done. I recommend JORI Logistics because of the ease of working with them. They handle everything.

JORI Logistics replies quickly and contacts us if there’s any issue with cross-border shipments. Their staff does an excellent job of communication. Nobody is perfect but JORI is darn near. Beverly is always polite and gets straight to the point. She asks clear questions and there are no grey areas. It’s nice and easy to deal with her. JORI saves us time, and it saves time for the transport companies as well.

Tory P, General Magnetic Canada, Calgary, AB - Aug 10, 2023

JORI provides great customer service at a reasonable price. Twice, however, JORI declared the wrong currency on shipments from China to Canada. JORI did fix the problems. They helped us to amend the CBSA customs form. JORI Logistics responds very quickly and staff are really professional. The price is also very reasonable. I can count on JORI Logistics.

Venus, Advanced Upstream Ltd., Calgary, AB - Jul 26, 2023

JORI Logistics is very dependable and we know we can rely on them. We are able to make our customer’s deliveries on time. When we’re doing international shipments, JORI is very good at doing follow up to let us know what’s going on. Because the requirements are not clear to us, we need more advice on international shipments. Our shipments are moved promptly by JORI to their final destination.

JORI Logistics’ services are essential for us to get our material. We started with JORI during COVID and we haven’t had any issues. They are the only company we use for customs brokerage. JORI is knowledgeable about quoting, and we’ve never had any issues with our material crossing the border.

Nick U, Delcan Products, Fort Macleod, AB - Jul 14, 2023

JORI Logistics has a great streamlined process with their brokerage service. Alex was really helpful with a shipment from Belgium via sea freight and used a lot of her knowledge that I didn’t have. Paul went out of his way to get everything that we needed to figure out the new CARM process, even before I went through the PowerPoint lecture. Having JORI meet our business needs in a more simplified way has been a great help, particularly with exporting to the US.

Warren P, American Process Group, Stony Plain, AB - Jul 13, 2023

We appreciate that JORI Logistics seems to have people on call all hours of the day. If we have customs issues, they’re usually on it right away. Margaret, Jackie and Kurt are very helpful and knowledgeable. With JORI we get prompt border crossings, and they always seem to have someone available for customer service. Overall JORI is really good. Its just that the Canadian side seems to be more organized with the customs crossings. We have more issues with freight coming into the US.

JORI Logistics was great to work with, providing good support and timely communication. There were no issues, it was all positive. On both the freight and the customs side, I’d give JORI a 5/5. There were some unforeseen issues, but JORI did everything to address them and it all came off very well. There was a lot of value in having JORI make all the arrangements.

On the customs side, JORI Logistics’ staff are great. They know their stuff and communicate well. There are no problems with the paperwork. The staff only communicate what’s needed and that’s perfect. I just send JORI what I need and then they send confirmation that the load has crossed the border. It’s all straight forward, and the customs paperwork is spot on with JORI.

JORI Logistics gets 100% all of our customs clearance. We have 3 recurring shipments and they are all set up. It’s working well. JORI’s Customs CSR, Sarah, has been great. However it’s still hard to reach anyone in Accounts Receivable when I phone. We haven’t had any major issues with JORI. They are good to deal with.
