4 shipping options to send your Christmas gifts

Backlog from the Canada Post Strike update 2018

Exceptional backlogs caused by the Canada Post strike mean that customers will continue to face delays for the next few weeks and into the Christmas holiday period.

  • 600 tractor-trailers @ 2,500 packages = 1.5 million parcels
  • Overflow volume may lead to deliveries into January 2019
  • International shipments are expected to last into March 2019.
  • Increased chances of a lost or damaged parcel

There are even concerns that gifts just won’t make it to their destinations in time, as Canada Post has suspended its delivery standard guarantees. Delays on packages being shipped internationally are expected to last into March 2019.
