U.S. Suspends Canadian Mail Service

Global Express Guaranteed Service Continues Without Delay

Due to expectations by Canada Post officials that the strike by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers will last until at least sometime next week, the U.S. Postal Service has suspended accepting mail destined to Canada as of Saturday, June 18, 2011, 11:59 p.m.

Global Express Guaranteed shipments are still being accepted.

“As a convenience to our customers and to minimize service disruptions, we arranged to accept mail destined for Canada as long as possible,” said Giselle Valera, vice president, Global Business. “We will continue to closely monitor the strike situation, and once Canada Post resumes operations, the U.S. Postal Service will again begin accepting mail for Canada. We also will then resume processing any Canadian-destined mail currently held in our network.”

To avoid service disruptions or delays — regardless of the duration of the strike at Canada Post, U.S. Postal Service customers can continue to send letters and packages via the Postal Service’s Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) service. GXG is a premium, date-certain international shipping option with international transportation and delivery by FedEx Express. GXG is available and at thousands of participating retail locations throughout the United States.
