Possible Canada Post strike and Purolator shipping delays

Posted on Wednesday, July 6th, 2016

To our valued clients,

Due to the possibility of a Canada Post strike Purolator is currently advising that they cannot guarantee express/next day delivery.   We are recommending that until the Canada Post issue is resolved, non-urgent cases be shipped Monday-Wednesday to avoid the possibility of specimens being held up over the weekend.   Weather is also a factor, and with the increased temperatures this week we are advising that you include extra ice packs to avoid any over-heating/spoiling of specimens. 

Please note your tracking numbers prior to shipping so that you can follow your package to ensure delivery has taken place, and advise us of any issues.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter, we will keep you posted on any updates that we receive from Purolator.
