A Message From Purolator  – UPDATED January 14, 2021

Purolator shipments may experience a delay of one to three days (inclusive of weekends) and shipments that require our Special Handling service will experience delays of four to seven days (inclusive of weekends).

Earlier cut-off times for unscheduled shipment pick-up requests may be implemented daily for various regions across the country.

Shipments destined to businesses closed as a result of government COVID-19 prevention measures will be returned to shippers or held for pickup, depending on location. All shipments will be scanned as “Receiver unavailable – Temporary closure for pandemic” when customers track shipments online. Please check the status of your shipment online. Please check the shipping centre locator for local hours and service details, which are subject to change with local conditions.
