Purolator International is pleased to be your shipping partner for this 2021 holiday season. Due to increased shipment volume during the holiday season, we have put additional service exceptions and measures in place to ensure we are meeting customer expectations throughout this peak period.

During this period of high volume shipments, there are a few steps that you can take to help ensure your shipments reach their final destinations on time.  We hope the following information will be helpful so you can plan accordingly.

The below transit times, which will remain in effect until further notice, enable our operation to respond to significant volume increases and service demand, and to provide customers with more accurate expected delivery times and reliability.
