Canada Post remains operational. They have high volumes of parcels, advertising mail is low, but still moving.
Trucking companies continue to cross the border although some cross-border companies have cut back crossing days. Some are now at three times a week (from 5 days)… so some slight delays may occur getting items to Canada. However once they arrive, they move at regular speed right now through Canada Post.
Did you know that Canada Post offers multiple options for your company to customize the indica being printed on their Canadian mail pieces? Give us a call for more details and emailed templates.
Canada Post has a slight variance on envelope sealing, so be extra careful not to incur a surcharge here. A variance of 25mm (1 inch) can be handled on machineable mail through the machines. If it goes any further along than that and the flap is not sealed, you could be looking at a per piece additional charger for your entire mailing. Make sure to try and seal the entire length of the flap to avoid this probability.
