Today is a great day for those who live in the Montreal area. We just set up a new KinekPoint in Champlain, New York that is a great addition to our network. The location is called Bay Brokerage and is our 4th Bay Brokerage border KinekPoint. Other Bay Brokerage KinekPoints are in Port Huron, Michigan, Buffalo, New York, and Wellesley Island (location called Anchor Development), New York.

What we’re really excited about is the service this new Champlain, New York location will provide our Kinek customers since it will accept packages of any size or weight.

In order to use this KinekPoint as your US shipping address, simply head on over to and click the sign up button. Once you have registered with Kinek, you simply use the search function on to find Bay Brokerage (type in Champlain, New York). This will bring up a map of the area and show you our nearby locations. Click on Bay Brokerage and then click the “Set as Default” button.

This will then display the shipping address you use when ordering online and also include your Kinek#. This Kinek number is what we use to identify your package and send out notifications to you.

Have questions about using the Kinek service for your cross-border shopping? Send us an email at and we’ll answer your questions ASAP.
