How Envoy Networks Became a Leading Third Party Logistics Company

Back in 1998, Envoy Networks started out handling order fulfillment for Travelweek, a leading travel magazine. Over time, the company invested heavily in infrastructure, equipment, and vehicles to offer specialized logistics services across Canada.

Today, Envoy Networks partners with small and mid-sized businesses in Canada and the US that need help shipping within Canada. As your logistics partner, Envoy provides consistent and accurate fulfillment and shipping at competitive prices. They maintain close relationships with every client to understand specific needs and provide guidance.

Envoy has the flexibility and resources to meet a range of client needs. They monitor and mentor clients to ensure the best solutions and service. Envoy's team, led by President Glen Harwood, has over 20 years of experience in the logistics industry.

In 2015, Envoy purchased a state-of-the-art, 19,000-square-foot warehouse near Toronto's Pearson International Airport. The LEED-certified building maximizes energy efficiency and sustainability. Envoy uses motion-sensor LED lights, spray foam insulation, a rubberized roof coating, a WiFi-enabled HVAC system with CO2 monitors, and rooftop solar panels.

Envoy offers warehousing, fulfillment, and delivery services for B2C and B2B ecommerce companies shipping within Canada.

Expanding Capabilities and Infrastructure in Toronto

Expanding into the Greater Toronto Area was a natural next step for Envoy. With demand for our services growing, we needed more space and resources to properly serve our clients.

In 2015, they purchased a 19,000 square foot warehouse near Pearson International Airport. This state-of-the-art facility allows them to handle larger volumes of goods and provide more comprehensive solutions for businesses of all sizes.

Their Toronto warehouse incorporates environmentally-friendly features like LED motion sensor lights, spray foam insulation, a rubberized reflective coating on the roof, and rooftop solar panels. These investments help maximize energy efficiency and reduce our carbon footprint.

The location also gives them a strategic advantage. Being situated near Canada's busiest airport and highway systems means we have fast, direct access to cargo and transportation partners across the country and beyond. This connectivity translates into lower costs and quicker delivery times for Envoy’s clients.

With the new warehouse fully operational, they've been able to take on bigger clients with more complex needs. However, Envoy remains committed to the small and mid-sized businesses that have supported us from the beginning. Their goal is to provide premium service to companies of all types through a mix of technology, experience, and strong partnerships.

The future looks bright as we continue expanding our capabilities and reach. But no matter how much we grow, their promise stays the same: to work closely with each client as an extension of their team and help them achieve their goals. Envoy’s business is built on relationships, and that will never change.
