Hey neighbor! Did you know that AutomationDirect’s shipping policies make it easy to order your industrial automation products direct from the U.S.? We want to be your preferred supplier so we made shipping to Canada not only easy, but also fast, and in most cases free! So be sure to check us out for all of your industrial automation needs because at AutomationDirect you’ll always get more than you paid for.
We offer fast free shipping* for most orders over $49 U.S., and that includes the brokerage fees (when using an AutomationDirect nominated broker). By using our choice of carrier (typically air service), we can reach most Canadian destinations within 2 to 3 days. Plus, if you order by 6pm ET, in-stock orders will ship the same day!
All other shipping services (such as expedited and LTL items), and shipping on orders under $49, are calculated based on order weight.
*2-day free shipping does not apply to drop-ships, or orders requiring LTL transport, but LTL shipments can take advantage of our negotiated super-low flat rates (based on weight) that include brokerage fees.
Small Package Ground Service
- Orders $500 U.S. and under incur a flat $15 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties, taxes and shipping charges
- Orders from $500.01 to $1,600.00 U.S. incur a flat $27 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties, taxes and shipping charges
- Orders over $1,600.00 U.S. incur a flat $60 brokerage fee, plus applicable duties, taxes and shipping charges
When using the ground service option, all brokerage, duties, taxes and applicable shipping charges are calculated when you place your order, so there are no surprises when the shipment arrives. Note that choosing ground service will always incur shipping charges, regardless of order value.
Heavy items which require LTL shipping always incur shipping charges, however their value is used to calculate if the complete order is over $49 total, and only the weight of the LTL-required portion of a qualifying order will be used to calculate freight costs. We have negotiated super-low LTL flat rates that include brokerage fees.
Certain items cannot be brokered through AutomationDirect, including drop-ship items from any location other than our Cumming, GA warehouse and Hubbell.
