(Newswire.net — October 27, 2014) St. Petersburg, FL — Sending fresh Florida citrus to Canada has been an expensive proposition in the past, causing many “snowbirds” to avoid sending fresh fruits to friends and family up north. However, through negotiations with trusted carriers, Florida Fruit Shippers® has been able to reduce the cost of shipping significantly, making it much cheaper and easier to send fresh fruit to those north of the Canadian border.


Florida Fruit Shippers® at http://www.orangesonline.com has negotiated a new shipping price that is more than 20 percent less than previous costs. Currently, anyone shipping fruit to Canada must pay a Canadian surcharge; however, Florida Fruit Shippers® has managed to reduce this amount by $5, or 23 percent of the total shipping cost through an agreement with trusted shipping providers. Those who ship fruit to Canada will now pay only $20.99 per pack rather than the former charge of nearly $26.

Sending fresh Florida fruit to family and friends is easy with Florida Fruit Shippers®, who carry a wide range of gift baskets, boxes and varieties of fruits in season. Now, with reduced shipping charges, Florida Fruit Shippers® is able to send fruit at a much lower cost for customers.
