TORONTO, May 8, 2018 /CNW/ – Metro Supply Chain Group (“Metro”) announced today that it has acquired Total E-com Home Delivery Inc., a Mississauga-based operation with 18 years’ experience in door to door fulfilment of “big and bulky” online retail purchases.

Total E-com Home Delivery was started in 2000 as an early response to shifting consumer purchasing trends and the specific delivery challenges that online retailing presented.

Metro Group President, Martin Graham, agrees that this is an important day for Metro To Home: “The acquisition of Total E-com Home Delivery has a number advantages that support our strategic growth plans for the division. At the same time, we provide considerable value to its existing client base in terms of supply chain and warehousing capabilities.”
