parcels ship through Newgistics' centralized distribution centers, where parcels
are transferred to Landmark Global. Following customs inspection, Canada Post

- Better customer engagement with branded marketing messages and customer
websites help merchants reach customers in new ways. Newgistics' Transit
Triggers allows merchants to send personalized messages to consumers based
