UPDATE 128: International Mail Service Updates Related to COVID-19

 

On January 26, 2021, Canada Post, the designated operator of Canada, provided notification that due to an increase of confirmed COVID-19 cases resulting in staff shortages, one shift has been temporarily closed at their Gateway East processing plant in the Greater Toronto Area.  However, the Toronto exchange office, located in a separate area of the Gateway plant, continues to operate, albeit with a reduced workforce. Given this situation, disruption to normal operations and reduced processing capacity and clearance within customs operations for both inbound and outbound mail items are to be expected.

 

Unless otherwise noted, service updates to a particular country do not affect the delivery of military and diplomatic mail.

 

This service update affects Priority Mail Express International® (PMEI), Priority Mail International® (PMI), First-Class Mail International® (FCMI), First-Class Package International Service® (FCPIS®), International Priority Airmail® (IPA®), International Surface Air Lift® (ISAL®), and M-Bag® items.

 

The DMM Advisory will continue to provide updates as they are received. For a full list of international service disruptions, please visit https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm

 

 

As always, if you have any questions, please contact Customer Service via this Zendesk ticket system.
