Canada Post strikes again

Everything I order from Amazon either comes via their own branded delivery network or intelcomexpress. Never received a single item through Canada Post.

Not sure what you mean by that...... do you get vans/trucks, in Amazon colours, show up with "Amazon" plastered on the side? :unsure: AFAIK, Intelcom Courier(or courrier, as they spell it on their site) IS their main "delivery network"..... or at least they are in our neighbourhood. Having said that, we have had the occasional Amazon item(s) arrive via Canada Post.

That's really weird that an empty envelope would show up like that. Like others have said, let Amazon know and they will replace/refund it ASAP. That's a good thing about them.

Yup, my wife had ordered some stuff for her crafting projects, and their tracking showed it as being in their Surrey depot(Intelcom...... the last stop before being delivered) for several days, and eventually said something about "may be lost", so I did live chat with them, and they replaced the order RIGHT AWAY, and we got it a few days later.

They are Amazon delivery drivers, but their vehicles are not labeled. Intelcoms are not labeled either.

If its intelcom I will get an intelcom tracking number. If I get a delivery from Amazon themselves I will get an Amazon tracking number. It's a clear process.

In fact Amazon's own Delivery service is called Amazon logistics.

That's why I've been asking, because all of our packages from Amazon have come either via Intelcom, or CP, and as far as I've seen, the tracking numbers have all initially appeared to be "Amazon" tracking numbers, but then said package ends up delivered by either of the choices mentioned above. Maybe it's different setups, depending on your location, i.e. MAYBE Amazon don't deliver via their own drivers in certain areas...... :unsure:

Geez, chill out - there's no argument goin' on, at least not on my part..... merely trying to get the straight scoop.

They probably only have dedicated drivers in areas where they have a warehouse. It wouldn't make logistical sense if they had them in larger centers but still had to use third party couriers to get them from the warehouse to the dedicated drivers. (We don't have Amazon delivery drivers here in Moncton).

We have a couple of warehouses/sorting centers here but no amazon delivery, I thought they were only in the states? I guess they are making the move to Canada slowly but from what I heard, they have been basically getting a free ride from Canada post so they probably aren't in a rush to make it the norm. Our intelcom guys are uniformed though, even logos on their vans...

I'm not sure, but it's only been the last couple of years they have been doing it. I do live in the lower mainland and they have at least 4 major warehouses around here so it makes sense. I think my closest local is New Westminster.

As I was pondering the Canada Post aspect of this conversation, how many of you are ordering from 3rd party sellers on Amazon? It come to mind, that I actually did get one recently, but that was a shipment that came from Taiwan, and it originated there using Orange Connex and transferred over to Canada post once it cleared customs. This was the one and only time I ordered from a 3rd party.

I usually avoid 3rd party sellers on amazon as the return policy changes and prime benefits are not as great. They also jack up prices so your better off buying directly or off ebay- aliexpress IMO
