Postal strike leads to lost busi­ness

Calgary Herald - - OPINION -

Re: Cal­gary, other Al­berta cities hit by ro­tat­ing postal strike, Nov. 6

I have used Canada Post for 18 years to ship pack­ages to western Cana­dian lo­ca­tions in sup­port of a post-re­tire­ment mar­ket­ing func­tion. After send­ing a pack­age last month to ru­ral Al­berta, I was asked to ship an iden­ti­cal item to the same lo­ca­tion and, be­cause of the on­go­ing mail un­cer­tainty, I chose to try UPS as an al­ter­na­tive.

The cost was al­most the same and the pack­age de­liv­ered in an amaz­ing 22 hours to the re­cip­i­ent. My av­er­age $2,300 yearly ship­ping cost will now go to UPS rather than Canada Post.
