Have you ever taken a road trip and realized not only how large our beautiful country is, but also how small and remote some places can be?

Most people forget how big Canada is. Now think logistically for a moment – you have a time-sensitive shipment that you need delivered by next business day and it isn’t going to a major Canadian city.
How would you ship it?
Chances are, you would ship your packages with Purolator. Purolator has positioned itself as the strongest, next day delivery company of packages within Canada. With their ability to deliver packages by 9am, 10:30am, or end of next business day to more cities, towns, and villages than any other company, it makes Purolator a very attractive shipping option for your urgent domestic shipments. Being owned 91% by CanadaPost must certainly help with that.
So what do you do if Purolator threatens to go on strike?
With Purolator Teamsters getting a 97.4% vote authorizing strike action and issuing 72 hrs strike notice on Mar 26th, 2017, a strike is very real possibility. Purolator has even stopped accepting new packages ahead of the strike deadline (scheduled for 4:30 pm on Wed Mar 29th, 2017). Luckily, there are a number of other shipping options we can draw from to keep business moving! :-)
Shipping with Purolator
There are plenty of companies in Canada that can help you deliver your packages domestically or worldwide. Over the years, UPS and FedEx have invested millions in improving their delivery network in Canada and continue to do so. They offer a variety of delivery options including 9am, 10:30am, 12pm and next business day service to many locations throughout Canada.
There are also a number of other companies to choose from including CanadaPost, CanPar, Dicom, Loomis, DHL, and not to mention the countless number of local couriers. But let’s face it – you’ve used Purolator for ever, you’ve figured out how they work, and you know their numbers off by heart. 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.
