GTW was founded in 1964 by John Elliott, the father of the present owner. Starting in an 8000 square foot warehouse with a small number of clients, GTW has grown to be a major player in the book distribution industry through our integrity, commitment to a high level of customer service, and the flexibility to meet the needs of our clients.
GTW is located in Georgetown, Ontario, approximately a half hour west of Toronto. Our clients are offered a unique package of services. GTW can provide extensive experience in all areas and will tailor a package to meet each client’s needs.
Each client is assigned a key account manager who is that client’s main contact. This system ensures that the client service representative is familiar with the client’s products, as well as any special handling requirements.
We have a staff of experienced professionals who can handle all matters relating to fulfillment, freight forwarding, warehousing, systems and Customs.
GTW is pleased to announce that it has received C-TPAT (Customs – Trade Partnership Against Terrorism) approval from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Securities.
This is an important initiative for our clients as it will result in a reduced number of inspections and therefore reduced border times. It also allows access to other streamlined U.S. customs programs.
