Canada Post Strike

Canada Post has been a shipping solution for many Canadian consumers and businesses.   With online shopping having grown immensely year over year, shipping and shipping solutions have become a very real and important thing for us all.  Certainly, it has become a necessity for a lot of businesses.  So what can you do when you hear that a strike is looming over the horizon?

Luckily, there are plenty of companies in Canada that can help you deliver your packages worldwide. You have FedEx, UPS, Purolator, CanPar, Dicom, Loomis, DHL, not to mention the countless number of local couriers. But let’s face it – you’ve used Canada Post for so long you have their number on speed dial, learnt the in’s and out’s, and figured out the intricacies of their system.  Having to learn all that again, figuring out which company provides the best price and to where, how long parcels will take to get delivered – this can be overwhelming, let alone time consuming.  And we’re all busy people.
