Delivery & Processing Delays

Service updates due to COVID-19 outbreak | Posted on Nov 2, 2021

As the world continues to take the necessary precautions to combat the global pandemic, we see the impacts this has on shipping and e-commerce overall. Specifically, transportation availability and changing border relations have caused significant delays in shipping across the globe

Canada Shipments

Canada Post is reporting significant delays to shipment processing and delivery as they prioritize the safety of their staff and customers. As more consumers opt to shop online during the pandemic, they are experiencing some of their highest non-holiday numbers, particularly in their larger processing facilities such as their Mississauga gateway. All Canadian shipments will see processing and delivery delays. You can expect delays for:

  • Shipments within Ontario are experiencing delays of 7 business days
  • Shipments within Montreal are experiencing delays up to 4 business days
  • Shipments within BC are experiencing delays up to 2 business days

US Shipments

USPS have been experiencing delays in shipment processing, tracking and delivery. This is due to reduced domestic and international airline flight availability and strict safety precautionary measures. In short, delays are expected for all U.S. shipments. 

International Shipments

International shipments have seen the biggest delays as many countries take the necessary precautions to minimize the spread of the virus. Depending on the destination country there are both service disruptions and some countries have suspended mail acceptance due to the limited availability of flights for transporting shipments. We encourage you to seek out the latest updates for a specific destination by going directly to the website of the postal service for that country.
