Canpar Service Impacts Due to COVID-19

Updated Jan 15

Canpar reports that the current service levels have improved enough to restore the previous 12 p.m. cut-off for same-day pickups. However, there are still delays of 1-2 business days for some pickups as volumes remain high.


Updated Dec 9

Canpar has informed us of delays related to the current challenges of increased holiday volumes, weather conditions and COVID-19 safety precautions.

  • Delays between 1-2 business days for pickups
  • If available, there will be am 8 a.m. cut-off for same-day pickup (previously noon)

Canpar has made adjustments to their operations to minimize the impact on their services however, expect delays as they are experiencing high volumes of shipments.

Remember when using the Canpar pickup service to:

  • Properly consolidate and package your shipments
  • Avoid using bags of any kind as they are likely to be damaged in transit and can lead to lost packages
  • Include a batch label for your consolidated shipments.
