Canada Post Refunds & Claims

Does your business ship with Canada Post? Save up to 20% on your shipping invoice through automated refund claims with LateShipment.com’s parcel audit software.

Is your business claiming Canada Post late delivery refunds regularly?

Canada Post promises on-time delivery for various service types. If your package is delivered later than the promised time you are entitled to a complete refund. Apart from late delivery refunds, there are over 50 service errors for which business owners can claim Canada Post refunds.

There is a catch, however. Canada Post refund claims need to be filed within 30 days. Most businesses fail to do this as they do not have an automated claim process in place.

Claiming Canada Post refunds regularly and holding them responsible for service failures can easily save you up to 20% of your shipping spend.
