Shipping to the U.S. is a great value option for Canpar Express customers. This southbound service is a reliable, convenient, cost effective delivery service anywhere in the continental U.S. Canpar Express can provide the names of preferred brokers upon request if the shipper does not have a broker. All brokerage and duty fees are payable to the broker by the shipper or the consignee. The shipper must specify on the Customs Pro-Forma whether they or their consignee will be paying brokerage. Transit times outlined below are estimates only as customs clearance may require additional time.

If you are shipping from the U.S. Canpar Express has a solution for your company. You can benefit from Canpar Express’s low Canadian shipping charges by having your U.S. affiliates or suppliers consolidate your shipping and drop ship into our Canadian based warehouses. Canpar Express will deliver the shipments to your Canadian customers to minimize handling and transportation costs.

Managing transportation costs is a critical component to all business. In order to help our customers control these expenses, Canpar Express offers several pick-up tag options that allow you to retrieve a parcel with the charges billed to your account using our Ground service. The options include:

  • Electronic Pick-up Tags – Simply enter the address information for the pick-up tag through your individual MyCanpar portal. If you do not currently have a portal access created, please click here to have your sales representative contact you about setup.
  • Pick-up Tags – If you require a product to be picked up and returned to you, contact our customer service team to make arrangements. Click here for contact information.
  • 3rd Party Pick-up Tag – In certain situations customers require a shipment picked up at one address and forwarded on to another (not returned to shipper as would happen with our regular pick-up tag service). As a result of this need, Canpar Express has created a 3rd party pick-up tag service which allows you to make this request either through your portal or customer service.

Our COD service is available on both the Ground and Select service levels.


Shipments are automatically protected in the unlikely event of loss or damage with the exception of used or defective goods to a maximum of:

Canada/U.S.A. Ground and International Shipments: $100/shipment or $2.00/lb whichever is greater.

Express/Select Service: $250/shipment or $2.00/lb whichever is greater.

The declared value of a shipment should reflect the shipper’s cost of goods.

Used or defective goods have a maximum liability of $2.00 per pound ($4.41 per kg) (whether declared or not).

Additional coverage is available and can be purchased in increments of $100.00. Refer to your Canpar Express rate guide for Optional Additional Protection charges (see Liability for maximum declared value).


If for any reason Canpar Express cannot deliver your parcel, we ensure it gets back to the shipper with a documented reason. When a consignee is not available to receive a shipment, Canpar Express drivers will leave a notice and deliver your freight to a convenient SMARTSpot.


If for any reason Canpar Express cannot deliver a parcel and returns it to the shipper, a charge equal to the outbound delivery rate will be applicable.

See our Returns Solutions page for more information.


By providing an email address in the selected field of your CanShip shipping system or web application, Canpar Express will send an ASN to the consignee notifying them of the upcoming delivery. If they will not be available at the time of delivery, there is a simple option to print and sign a notice for the driver to leave the package in a safe place. With advance notice, your package will be delivered the first time – hassle-free. This option is not available to apartment buildings or condos.
