About Purolator

Purolator is Canada’s number one courier company in reach and fleet size. It provides shipping, freight, and courier solutions for businesses and individuals looking to ship parcels in the American and Canadian regions. It offers business solutions for retail and ecommerce sectors that allow these businesses to use their network to provide a seamless delivery experience to customers. Tracking, estimation, and pickup services are provided for shipments and freight for optimised operational efficiency. 

Purolator was initially incorporated as Trans Canada Courier company in 1967. After that, the company was acquired by Purolator filters, thus giving the company its unique name. The Canada Post bought the majority stake in the company in 1993. Canada Post owns about 91% of the company, while Rainmaker investments own 7%. The remaining two per cent is distributed among private and public shareholders. 

The company is known for its reach in the Canadian and American regions. The carrier has about 99.9% reach in the Canadian region, including some of the most remote regions of the Great White North. The company operates its network through 175 operational facilities supported by 3350+ courier vehicles. The company is the largest in terms of owned assets and fleet size in Canada. Purolator has revoluntized deliveries in Canada with their unique programs and services that fulfil even the small needs of the customers. 

In the Shipping department, the company allows you to calculate an estimate before you create your order. You can track your shipping and freight orders. This feature comes in handy in the ecommerce sector as the customers want to know where their order is at all times. Along with this, the company provides pickup services for parcels and business solutions for ecommerce and retail businesses. 

Purolator started a ‘mobile quick stop’ initiative in 2018, allowing the company to add mobile locations for pickups. The company’s one of the very carriers in Canada that can guarantee same-day and next-day deliveries all seven days of the week. ClickPost has a tracking shipping and tracking API integration with Purolator that allows you to avail the carriers' services and other essential services like NDR management and returns management.
