Dec. 2, 2010
OTTAWA - Canada Post has begun preparation for the peak mailing season to ensure the higher volumes of mail will be delivered in time for the holidays. Beginning this weekend packages will be delivered on Saturdays, Sundays and weekdays until 9 p.m. through December.
“Mail volumes have started to pick up,” said Doug Jones, Senior vice-president, Operations for Canada Post. “We’re ready for another busy season and our employees are eager to meet our customers’ expectations.”
Extra flights have been added to the national air network as well as 50 additional highway services to compliment the more than 1,400 trucks that regularly move mail across the country on a daily basis. Canada Post also moves 10 tractor loads of mail by train each business day.
Canadians are reminded to get their cards and letters in the mail stream early to avoid disappointment at this special time of year. Mailing dates are available on the Canada Post website at: http://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/personal/holiday/default.jsf.
