Canada Post names Harling Direct as an Authorized Partner
Toronto, June 22nd, 2012 — Canada Post (CPC) launched its Authorized Partner Program with two days of meetings, presentations and a lively exchange of ideas between upper management of Canada Post and executives from their newly appointed Authorized Partners.
Following a six month selection process CPC selected 24 companies from across Canada to become Authorized Partners. All of the selected Mail Service Providers have a history of excellence in data management, direct mail and parcel preparation, as well as a commitment to training their personnel in the latest postal techniques, technical guidelines and new targeted data services offered by CPC.
CPC presented a newly created logo, in the corporate colours of CPC, which identifies the 24 Mail Service Providers as Experts in CPC services. The logo will appear along with partner contact information on the CPC web site; it will also be available for the Partners to use on their own web sites and print material.
