For small and large merchant partners of SHOP.CA, this partnership will allow them to scale easily while reducing costs by leveraging the Think Logistics experience, infrastructure and capabilities.

The partnership will also expand to enable the last mile delivery of goods to Canadians of products that originate in foreign markets.

For the consumer, this partnership will unlock the ability to purchase bundles of lower-priced products consumers create themselves on SHOP.CA and have them delivered right to their door on an automated schedule the consumer selects.

“We are pleased and excited to partner with SHOP.CA as ecommerce continues to experience explosive growth in Canada.
