Posted on Fri, Nov 30, 2018

Canada Post backlogs in mail or parcel deliveries are worsening across the Canada. Canada Post also suspended delivery-time guarantees . As a result of ongoing industrial action, US Postal Service parcel service to Canada has been disrupted.


Canada Post is requesting their international partners to suspend the dispatching of international traffic destined for Canada. Jet Worldwide can assist shippers with low cost delivery for heavier parcels shipped from the US to Canada.
