We have definitely had a few bumps in the road, and JORI is really quick to remedy anything that could potentially go wrong. JORI is super punctual with responses and helping us with problem solving. They are full of information when I was asking about how to ship things to Mexico. JORI was a wealth of knowledge and it was reassuring to have them help us through the process when it was new to us. We get responses to email requests or quotes within 1/2 hour. JORI is super easy to work with, and they have a good way of explaining any information they may need from us. JORI staff are really good communicators and always available.

JORI Logistics provides really good service, availability, and competitive pricing. For customs we use JORI for everything. I value the relationships with their staff. I feel like I can call Bernadette or Kurt at any time regarding Canada and US imports, and they’re always very helpful. They reach out to us as well and offer educational courses. They care about educating their clients on logistics, and that’s pretty unique for a logistics company.

JORI is very professional and they reply to emails. If I have questions or concerns JORI always helps and will give reasons for customs claims and whether there is GST or not. JORI is perfect for customs. Shane always lets us know which documents to provide and which ones we should keep for the future – like commercial email if the government wants to see it. If freight prices could be a little bit lower that would be good.

The ease of doing business with JORI Logistics and their communication is what I value most. They go above and beyond to help us find the best way to address value-added services. If we ship something into Canada and then there’s repairs or modifications, we need to determine how much value was added when we’re shipping it back out. JORI has helped me determine the value add.

Internationally we use JORI Logistics for 95% of our freight forwarding and customs. I recommend JORI because we use them and never had an issue. I would prefer a direct line to JORI’s CSRs instead of going through JORI’s voice mail system.

Brian C, Brico Oil Tools, Red Deer, AB - Feb 7, 2024

JORI Logistics’ efficiency and the ease of clearing the shipments are why I recommend them. Its not a headache. When there are problems its usually due to paperwork from the shipper. JORI reached me to inform me that a product being shipped was not on my import permit. It has been very good working with Margaret, their Customs CSR.

Skyler N, Sulphur Experts Inc., Calgary, AB - Feb 7, 2024

I value the clarity provided by JORI Logistics, and that someone is actually dedicated to my file that I can email. When we get the customs forms and everything goes well, its awesome. We do most of our business with another company. JORI is part of a different network than I am, but I definitely have had a good experience with JORI. Harprit gets things done, and that’s what we need. She answers my phone calls which is kind of nice compared to some of the big companies.

Roberta P, Central Auto Parts, Calgary, AB - Jan 25, 2024

JORI saves me some time. Our regular shipments are automated. If there’s something I need to know, Sarah lets me know. I value when I don’t have to chase after anything and it’s done properly, with no mistakes by JORI staff and the data entry team. Things still need to change; they need more experienced staff and more communication on CARM.

Ryan T, Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure, Calgary, AB - Jan 22, 2024

Brenda’s knowledge is amazing and she is very detailed. She just seems to know the answer most of the time. That is the main thing for me. Customs/logistics is a tedious field and Brenda takes care of a lot of things that I don’t want to handle. JORI Logistics’ communication is fantastic. If there are any issues they are brought to my attention promptly.

Tanis B, Kowal Equipment, Crossfield, AB - Jan 17, 2024

JORI Logistics is extremely prompt. When I send an email I get a response in 5 or 6 minutes. I’ve used other brokers and it can take them a day or a couple of days. JORI should get 100 stars! I don’t know how they do it, but they keep that Customs team very close. Even when Margaret isn’t there she sets me up with someone else at the regular customs broker email, and they are just as prompt as Margaret. They must do team building or something because everybody works so well together there. They know what they’re doing. If I ever have a question or am unsure of what I need to be doing, they have the answers. JORI is very knowledgeable in the importation of vehicles and iron into Canada.
