MSC/Transportation Update - September 22 2016

As you are no doubt aware, Canada Post has nearly completed its campaign to streamline its operations and cut jobs, otherwise known as Postal Transformation (PT). It is understood, that any new initiative or overhauling of an organisation’s previous system comes with a whole new set of challenges.

Below are some key points worth mentioning:
