Frequently asked questions
About us (3)
Intelcom is a private, 100% Quebec-owned company. We’re proud to offer delivery services in nine Canadian provinces.
We think of ourselves as more of a technology platform than a traditional transportation company. That’s because our advanced software infrastructure continuously optimizes our delivery routes, making us faster and more efficient and giving us a clear competitive edge.
We’re supported by over 2,500 employees and over 500 independent delivery contractors affiliated with over 60 distribution centres across Canada. We currently work with many international, Canadian and Quebec clients.
Intelcom's mission is to give customers the most reliable, responsive home delivery service. To do this, we use route optimization technologies to minimize our independent delivery contractors’ travel time from one delivery to the next.
Since the number of packages to be delivered varies greatly from one distribution centre to another, our independent delivery contractors aren’t assigned quotas. Our only goal is customer satisfaction.
We work with many, various-sized Quebec, Canadian and international clients.
As e-commerce and home delivery continue to grow, we’re continually working to develop partnerships with small and medium-sized businesses to give consumers a superior shopping experience.
Shipment tracking (3)
You can view the latest shipping status of your package, at any time, on our tracking page.
Please note that our Customer Service agents only have access to the same information as you, so they don’t know more than what you see on the tracking page.
If you signed up to receive notifications, you’ll get an email when your package is estimated to be delivered to your door within the next three hours.
This can happen if:
- The shipper hasn't notified us of the shipment. Sometimes, we may receive the information in our system a few hours after you placed your order on the shipper’s website.
- The tracking number doesn’t start with a series of letters followed by a series of numbers, for example INTCLMB1234567 or LPKEN000000012345678.
- The tracking number is more than three months old.
You can usually find your tracking number on the merchant website where you made your purchase, as well as in the confirmation email you received when your order has shipped.
Our delivery hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
Of course! You can change the delivery address to anywhere within the region we serve. To change the delivery address, please contact us with the tracking number of your package and the address you would like your package delivered.
Please note that since we must make the change manually, this may cause a delivery delay.
This option is not available at this time.
According to your agreement with the merchant, your package may be left in a place deemed safe by the delivery person.
If there’s no secure location to leave the package at the delivery address, it will be returned to the warehouse and delivered the next business day.
Delivery issues (7)
At Intelcom, we continually review and improve our measures to prevent package theft and give our customers the highest-quality service.
Our innovative notification system, based on the optimal sequence of packages to be delivered, sends each consumer a personalized notification when their package is scheduled for delivery within the next three hours so they can be ready or ask a neighbour to accept their package.
Over 99.5% of our packages are delivered the same day we receive them, so package theft is more fiction than fact. What’s more, most recipients are spending more time at home due to the pandemic so they can receive their packages in person while respecting physical distancing measures.
If a customer doesn’t receive their package, we suggest that they make a claim with the merchant with whom they placed their order. In all cases, Intelcom will work with both buyers and merchants to try to resolve any situation.
We’re sorry for the delay. Our estimates are based on the delivery driver's schedule, but they may have gotten a little behind on their deliveries for the day.
We invite you to check the latest status of your package on our tracking page. If it indicates that your package is still out for delivery, it will be delivered soon.
This means that we attempted to deliver your package, but were unable to.
This may be because:
- Your front door was inaccessible
- We didn’t have the access code for the door
- Your company was closed
- There was no safe place to leave the package
We’ll try to deliver your package on the next business day.
If your package was not delivered to you in person, you should have received the photo of the delivery by email. If necessary, you can contact our customer service team to send you a delivery confirmation photo.
For security and confidentiality purposes, Intelcom does not know the contents or the value of the packages which are delivered. Thus, if you have not received your package, you will need to contact the merchant from whom you made your purchase to make a claim.

Since the safety of our employees, independent delivery contractors and customers is a top priority, we’ve put several safety measures in place, including:
- Touchless delivery
- Remote working for all administrative employees
- Preventative measures in all our facilities
- Remote recruitment activities
If a person develops symptoms, they will be asked to self-isolate at home until they receive a diagnosis. With our internal contact tracing, we can quickly pinpoint people who may have been exposed in the past few days so they can also go into precautionary quarantine.
The concerned person's workplace will be temporarily closed and thoroughly disinfected. As a precautionary measure, an email alert will also be sent to recipients of packages that may have been handled by the individual.

- wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after handling the package
- avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth, especially with unwashed hands”
