Third-party research finds Purolator Express offers fastest Canadian delivery

April 18, 2024

For more than 60 years, Purolator has confidently shipped packages to, from and within Canada. Now, new research conducted for the Canadian parcel market reveals that Purolator Express® service offers the fastest delivery times within the country. 

ShipMatrix – proprietary software used to manage visibility, shipping and customer experience – examined transit times for intra-Canada shipments across three major carriers in Canada. It found that Purolator offers the fastest Canadian transit times for packages, compared to both FedEx and UPS. This also includes the fastest delivery to Canadian rural destinations. 

“Our Purolator Express service is not only faster, but it offers next-day delivery to more destinations across Canada than our competitors,” said Ramsey Mansour, Senior Vice President, Corporate Marketing and Strategy, Purolator. “We are extremely proud of our ongoing commitment to help our customers deliver their promises and are consistently evolving to meet their needs through an extensive network, capable of reaching 100 per cent of Canadian postal codes.” 

E-commerce is a massive and growing segment in Canada with more than 75 per cent of consumers shopping online. In 2021 alone, these sales surpassed $95 billion1. Tapping into the Canadian shipping market represents a prime opportunity for both domestic and global companies to grow their footprints. 

For these shippers, choosing the right delivery partner that is entrenched in the Canadian market with a deep understanding of the geography, and offers a broad product portfolio is imperative. Purolator Express is one example of our portfolio innovation, offering multiple delivery times to meet several service level needs, with detailed, in-transit tracking and guaranteed, next-day delivery across Canada.
