Christmas 2016 was a record-breaker for Canada Post

 

OTTAWA, Feb. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - Christmas 2016 was a blockbuster for Canada Post, shattering every previous parcel delivery record. During the critical holiday period – which includes November, December and the first two weeks of January – the company played a central role in helping Canadian businesses grow through e-commerce. It set these and other delivery records:

  • 26 days on which Canada Post delivered one million parcels. That's 10 more Million Parcel Days than last Christmas season, and it was only four years ago – on December 13, 2012 – that Canada Post delivered one million parcels on a single day for the first time.
  • 20 consecutive Million Parcel Days. We delivered 1 million or more parcels on each business day from November 28 to December 23. With significant planning, investments and hard work, we met unprecedented demand and delivered a positive customer experience to Canadians.
  • An all-time single-day record for parcels we delivered to Canadians – 1.52 million – on December 5, 2016. That was the equivalent of delivering about 3,620 parcels per minute.
