    From what I hear, Purolator's service in our rural area is garbage. They refuse to deliver to farms, and pretty much anything with a COD on it gets RTS'd. Anything that has a farm address on it gets delivered to the post office in a nearby town and the customer has to come pick it up. We have more packages that show up at our centre with "hold at UPS depot" on them since switching to Purolator.

    That's what I heard too. I'm hoping they don't fully switch as puro is killing ups service and plus my job be on the line if ups switches fully.

    That's what I heard too. Puro is really killing ups ontime service and I really hope they don't switch fully as my job is on the line.

    Last I heard (read) was that Puro had a working partnership with DHL.

    Puro no longer deals with dhl, as they have ups shipping machines and convert all there int'l volume over to a ups thermal label.

    Purolator delivers UPS rural volume in western Canada, and in exchange UPS delivers Purolator's international volume.

    Mutalator is making UPSers in Canada look bad! There's gotta be a plan in place to build our presence and brand name in Canada.

    I know Puro is making a bad name for UPS ontime service and I guess in the Maritimes UPS is not using Puro yet.
