How Late Do Couriers Deliver?

Posted by Charlene Hui

Has your receiver advised to have their shipment delivered in the evening? Are you wondering if this is even possible? Don’t let a missed delivery hurt your business! If you need to know how late couriers deliver, look no further – we’ve got you covered!

So just how late do couriers deliver? It really depends. Here are the general times for our partnered couriers:

Business: about 4:00pm
Residence: about 6:00pm

Business: by 5:00pm
Residence: by 7:00pm

Business: by 5:00pm
Residence: by 8:00pm

Business: until 5:00pm
Residence: until 6:00pm

Business: until 5:00pm
Residence: up to 7:00pm – 8:00pm (unless a time-definite service is selected)

Delivery times also depend on the zone location. Some areas are more rural and only make residential deliveries. Other more urban areas are made up entirely of businesses so the delivery trucks carry less and therefore packages typically get delivered before the end of the business day.

As a FlagShip customer, just let us know your receiver’s postal code and we will be able to let you know the closing time. Don’t let the thoughts of “how late does Purolator deliver?” or “does this delivery time request even make sense?” make the shipping process complicated. We make shipping simple – just ask us at any time if you’re not sure how late couriers deliver.
