The Puro Freight company started its activity in 1960. At first, it worked as a subsidiary of the American Courier Corporation. They served only a few clients in Ontario and Quebec. Seven years later, association with Trans Canadian Couriers helped with the expansion of the activity. In 1973, it was renamed as Puro Courier Ltd. After another seven years, the company introduced a new concept — tracking Puro, retailing and opened an appropriate center.
Purotracking center became available in the beginning of 21st century. A modem link made a connection to the internet. Puro was the first company from Canada that used a worldwide network to get requests from the client. Puro shipping software helped track parcels, transit time, and check rates.
Since then, over 240 thousand parcels were processed daily. The bills were completed automatically. The transport network expanded in 1990 when aircraft were added.
