Vancouver Olympics Warehouse Spirit
The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games will soon be upon us, and Shipwire’s Vancouver Canada warehouse is seeing more activity as merchants ready for the games. For information on Shipwire Canada and how you can use the warehouse see “Import to Canada” our Canada warehouse guide.
Canada Post is also working hard to ensure that they are ready for the games. In a recent e-mail to Shipwire they assured us that they are doing everything possible to meet our daily business needs with minimal disruption during this once-in-a-lifetime experience for Vancouver Canada. The bulk of this activity will be centered around their downtown Vancouver facilities; however, Canada Post is making efforts because of the general increase in parcel, mail and freight that is anticipated surrounding the games.
Shipwire recommends to our Canada Vancouver merchants that they expect increased mail volume during the period of the games (February 12-28th), as such there could be some delays with tracking numbers going live on inbound shipments. Service levels in the warehouse should be normal.
