Electronic Shipping Tools Updates (2019)

Stay informed about changes, new features and scheduled outages.

February 2019 updates to shipping tools include:

EST 2.0 - Revised Neighbourhood Mail Data Entry Flow

Based on customer feedback, improvements were made to EST Desktop 2.0 to make it easier to create orders for Neighbourhood Mail campaigns.

The enhanced platform makes it easier for customers to:

  • enter mailing data
  • navigate the tool
  • identify when delivery standards cannot be met and change deposit dates

A new tutorial and a before-and-after view helps users with these changes. Access new and updated self-help tools at canadapost.ca/cpnmguides.
