why is canada post so bad?

first of all, I have no respect for this courier company. We all know they cannot compete with Fedex, or DHL in terms of parcels. and now they are failing to even deliver regular mail. I have lost so many registered mail via canada post its super suspicious. now, they dont even deliver mail anymore. And its all super random delivery times too. They deliver 2 times per week to my apartment, and 3 times a week to my other apartment, and 5 days a week to my detached house. It seems like they like to serve houses more than apartment complexes.
also the amount trash mail they spew out is literally disgusting. i have to check my all my boxes every week or else it get too full.
can someone explain why they can operate so badly and still be in business?

inb4 it's the end user not the service

CP ain't awesome but IMO they DESTROY fedex, DHL, and whatever other shitty private company can you can name.

i also trust USPS over private companies too.

not here. 90% of Tracking numbers don't work on canadapost tracking website. despite being registered.
Of the ones that do track, it shows the shipment is sitting somewhere for over 2 weeks with no updates.

Canada post has been great for me. Always receive my mail on time or earlier - until last month where my parcels would get sent to my neighbour...contacted them and hopefully it's fixed now

Canada post always leave my package on the side of the house or just straight in front of the front door. They don't even bother to knock anymore! Is like I won't even know I have package till i check online and see it was deliver...... While at home waiting.......
I try to file a complain but their system is so bad I just give up. No issue with UPS at all.

really depends on the person
sometimes they straight up just leave it, sometimes they leave a notice, sometimes they knock and then leave it
if its an amazon package they'll usually call me and ask if its ok to leave at the front door

Purolator and UPS are straight up fucking garbage
so many fuckin times they marked something as "attempted delivery" when they clearly didn't cus i was at home anticipating the damn thing

If you can, get stuff delivered to your work. If it gets delivered to my condo, 90% of the time I'll have to go to the post office to pick it up because it needs signature. There's always someone at reception. I never miss a package.

You think canada post is bad?! Try purolator. I missed a package at 6am on a fucking friday morning, fuck I was still asleep before work. So, earliest I can pick up a package is monday at 11:30am because the driver parked and "leaves the [fucking] packages in the truck after his shift" quoted from the purolator store on marine and byrne. Wtf. So they just leave shit in a barely secured truck? At least canada post drops their shit off to the closest post office to pick up on most days-of if i missed a package. I want purolator to fucking burn in hell. Canada post isn't too bad already...

If you didn't know, Amazon's contract with Canada Post ended and the majority will be delivered by Purolator. You will see more of them if you order a lot from Amazon.

It happens to you because you're an Asian Gululu. You should sue Canada post for being racist.

as a courier for FedEx, here is my view on why ppl leave packages without knocking

If i have a commitment time to deliver 20 packages by 12pm, and my average is 9 per hour, and i leave my station at at 10am, there is no possible way i can make all 20 commits in the 2hour span while i wait 30-45 seconds at a door to see if its going to be answered or not. Im guessing couriers chose their battle whether they wait or not depending on how busy they are.

do couriers leave packages without knocking or waiting around because theyre lazy and dont want to wait ? probably
do couriers leave packages without knocking or waiting around because they want to finish faster so they can go home? probably
do couriers leave packages without knocking or waiting around to cut down time and not get "talked too" because they didnt hit their parcels commit times ? probably
do couriers leave packages without knocking or waiting around because after they finish their route, they have to go and help somewhere else? probably i certainly do.

There are many reasons why some ppl leave it and not knock, and many reasons why some of us ring your door and knock at the same time (even if you believe ringing the doorbell is enough)

Sometimes, im sure couriers leave the package at your door to save you the hassle and time of coming all the way to our stations to pick it up

Is funny coz this happens to me a few co workers as well. So we have our stuff delivery to work and the delivery guy ask for customs fee which is fine but we only have cash and he doesn't take cash. So few months down the road we got a bill from them going to work so we call and ask them what it is for. Pretty sure we know what it is for. So we explain to the guy on the phone we are willing to pay at the time but the delivery guy refuse to take our money.

In the end we never had to pay a penny and we still package delivery to us.

Doesn't Amazon use their own thing now? Shows up at AMZCA with a tracking # that starts with TBC.

Amazon started using their own thing for some apartments. But the majority is still delivered by other couriers. Eventually they will probably have a delivery network big enough that they don't need to outsource

My last handful of amazon orders came from AMZCA and delivered to a single family home fyi. So I guess its already happening.
