    Xpresspost USA Tracking

    Xpresspost USA is the fastest shipping option provided by Canada Post for sending mail and parcels to the United States. With Xpresspost USA, you can track your shipments and confirm delivery with a signature. The service comes with on-time guarantees to most U.S. states. Each shipment is assigned a unique tracking number, which you can use to monitor the status of your package. It is important to note that Xpresspost-USA items should be treated as domestic Priority Mail by U.S. Postal Service employees. This service includes Delivery Confirmation, which means that every Xpresspost-USA item must receive a delivery scan and signature to ensure successful delivery. No exceptions will be made.

    Xpresspost USA Delivery Time and Shipping Speed

    The estimated arrival date for items shipped within the U.S. is typically 2-3 business days. Please note that delivery standards are based on shipments between major urban centers and may vary depending on the origin, destination, and other factors. The actual delivery times may differ from the estimated arrival date.
