At the bare minimum, all parcel quotes are compared to Canada Post’s “Regular Parcel” pricing to ensure that a minimum of 20% is saved on every shipment. Multi-box shipments and international shipments originating in Canada see the highest savings, and existing clients who ship internationally see more than 30% savings than booking couriers themselves using their corporate courier accounts.
