Seldat, a supply chain services and technology solutions company, announced Oct. 23 that it had opened two warehouses in Canada.

One location is in Surrey in the metro Vancouver, British Columbia, area and the other is in Milton in the greater Toronto area.

“As Seldat continues to expand globally, a key initiative is to ensure we have the capacity and locations customers demand outside the U.S.,” Aaron Huntt, senior vice president of operations, said in a press release. “By opening these facilities in North America, we can better meet the needs of our clients doing business throughout Canada and beyond.”

Headquartered in New Jersey, Seldat has more than 2,200 employees. The Surrey facility will total 46,656 square feet; the Milton facility 106,846 square feet.

The warehouses will allow Seldat to provide a master distribution agreement to non-Canadian companies. This has potential for significant cost savings, according to the press release, because import duties are calculated from the freight-onboard price from the factory, rather than the selling price.
