Amazon Canada Debuts its Delivery Service in Victoria, B.C.
Amazon Logistics is the online retailer’s own delivery service, which has quietly expanded in Victoria, British Columbia.
While other cities in Canada have had delivery by Amazon for a while now, B.C.’s capital city on Vancouver Island is just getting it now (we tend to wait longer for things here on the island).
A recent Amazon order detailed our package was being shipped by AMZN, with a tracking number starting with TBC, catching our attention. Delivery updates are available directly on Amazon’s website, while third-party apps such as Deliveries can track these directly as well (choose the Amazon – by tracking link option).
Speaking with the delivery driver who dropped off our package (driving an unmarked white van), he said the Amazon service has only been up and running in Victoria for a “couple of weeks”, with a warehouse based in Central Saanich along Keating Cross Road, in the area’s industrial park.
The addition of Amazon Logistics in Victoria will help alleviate pressure on delivery partners such as Canada Post, Purolator FedEx, UPS, Dynamex and Intelcom.
“Amazon Logistics is Amazon’s delivery service. Orders shipped by Amazon Logistics will show as shipped with Amazon,” explains the company’s website, which also details its delivery protocols.
“If no one is at the address when delivery is attempted, we will leave the package in a secure location. If no secure location is available, or the delivery requires someone to be present, Amazon will leave a “We missed you” card. We’ll make three delivery attempts on consecutive days. After the third unsuccessful attempt, your package will be returned to Amazon for a refund,” says Amazon.
Also, recent delivery options in Victoria have been showing free One-Day shipping for Prime, suggesting the city will be next in line for an official announcement.
