So I recently ordered a package from south Korea (shipping through ems), and on the invoice email about the shipment, i realized that the postal code was wrong. Whatever else, choose the address, country, city and name are correct. I"m close to the Toronto area, therefore obviously the postal password starts v L1V, however for some factor the seller put an completely different article code... LIKE really DIFFERENT! They put a 6 DIGIT postal password which is fully incorrect! will my package still pertained to my attend to hopefully?

Hmm, this may be a problem, postal codes are pretty important however hopefully a worker looks at it and figures the end that the postal password is wrong, they"ll resolve it and put it earlier into the distribution pile. Is over there a tracking number? If so you could contact customer support and have lock flag the package/attach a note to it once it arrives.

I"m guessing it"ll take part extra time yet it will display up. I"m certain all the packages to Canada acquire shipped in bulk to Canada then Canada article will kind them. They"ll kick the end the poor postal code then redirect the package to the exactly address.

Buddy works for Canada Post... We"ve debated this before.If it has your name, street address, city, province & Canada it will find you... In spite of an not correct Postal Code.As
Senk said above the process is to route to Canada and also then sort from there.In fact, you can have any type of ONE the the assorted bits of data wrong, and also chances are an excellent that Canada write-up would still find you & deliver (ie appropriate postal code but wrong street address)Chances to decrease though, the more info the is not correct (ie 2 currently of data wrong, 3 lines, etc)

I load vans at a fedex facility and also this happens all the time. Fairly common and irritating every time this happens but someone will certainly eventually catch it. I recognize my courses by love so the moment I watch an untrue street ns send it to top quality Assurance to obtain it fixed and re-sorted. In the circumstances I miss it the shipment driver will certainly leave it out for following sortation. The worst that will occur is your package it s okay delayed.Actually currently that ns think around it, if the postal code was right yet street attend to was wrong, the postal code will obtain corrected to the not correct street address and the package will finish up misdelivered. Thankfully this doesn"t use to you so you"re fine.

While many of the details is not Canadian, this video clip about carrying wrongly-addressed mail is pretty interesting:

I know this is an old thread yet just want to add to it since this was among the only threads I could find top top the topic of "wrong postal code, right address" top top a distribution from Fedex. Ns ordered something on Saturday and also had it shipped to work yet accidentally offered my house postal code. I referred to as the Fedex customer company line automatically after receiving a shipping confirmation and noticing the dorn postal code. The Fedex lady claimed it would be something prefer $16 for them to solve the postal code over the phone, come which ns obviously responded "forget it". I told her if all else fails and the package doesn"t make it to me, that would just be went back to sender and also the agency would refund my credit transaction card. I can"t remember exactly what she said yet it to be something come the impact of "no, if there"s a wrong address on the shipping brand the mail will be undeliverable and also won"t it is in sent back to the shipper" ... I m sorry I thought was weird. One of two people she to be lying/misinformed, or ns misheard (I think it to be the former). Anyways, ns hung up and also just hoped for the best.Sure enough, the package make it come my work-related this morning....a day earlier than expected. No saying this would certainly be the case for every situations however it turned out fine in mine.

This ^^^^. Won’t be a problem. Will get processed yet just takes a little longer. CP just needs to manually uncover the postal code and also stick that on the package and also then send it for handling again.

This didn"t even happen in mine case. The was ceded with the original shipping label through the untrue postal code. A day previously than expected, no less!
lemmiwinks FedEx typically delivers packages previously than expected, contrasted to Canada write-up screwing increase deliveries also with correct information.
