It depends on what service you get. Standard package delivery has a 'Delivery Notification' number that may or may not provide some travel details. Now, Xpresspost and up should be more precise. I've had little issues with CP in all the years I've been shipping stuff... YMMV...

Tracking is helpful in terms of observing major milestones like clearing customs and entering one country or another, but it's never up to speed.

The best I've seen so far believe it or not is Ontario Cannabis Supply.
Order today, and your order arrives within three days.

I get a text letting me know that it will arrive today, then I get one saying they're an hour away, and then one final one saying they're five minutes away so be ready with your id.

It's not the greatest, but I still find them better than the "big three" in overall satisfaction.

I didn't know they had their own shipping compagny. I'm pretty sure SQDC uses Canada Post.

They use Domain Logistics and they have been quietly dialing their service and prices in while all the rest of the world has been going to hell.

I use that tracking a lot. I would say 80% of the time, it's been helpful and accurate. I'd rather have it shipped through CP than Fedex or UPS unless it's really a high priced item because of the extra charges.

It got both better and worse today. Today was the estimated delivery date. The bad news is that it didn't make it. The good news is that they finally updated the tracking page today. It has arrived in Montreal. So at least I now know where it is. The problem is that I'm in Halifax, so it still has a ways to go.

my last parcel landed in vancouver then arrived in Mtrl, shipped to TO , shipped to Ottawa ... (3 weeks)
then disappeared from the face of the earth.
all further calls to CP were met with ... "it's on its way , call us back if you don't get it soon"
3 months later I called the original shop and asked for a refund ... and got it , no problems.

Hopefully it won't go those lengths in this instance ... but I am certainly old enough to remember when Canada Post was considered a national menace.

Bought two guitars this week shipped in two separate boxes, dropped at the same post office in Ontario at the same time. One landed in Halifax last night, the other one is in Dieppe New Brunswick.
