Managing transportation costs is a critical component to all business. In order to help our customers control these expenses, Canpar Courier 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 Courier has created a 3rd party pick-up tag service which allows you to make this request either through your portal or customer service.
