Amazon delivery?

I ordered an item from amazon. Same day delivery to my workplace.

Thus it won’t be delivered via Canadapost.

If they can’t deliver the item what do they do? Or where would they drop off the item they can’t deliver?

Thanks

Reattempt it unless you give instruction on what to do if closed; "leave in mailbox/on reception desk, at door" etc.

Depending on your workplace, it'll be left with the reception or mailroom. If the office is closed or otherwise inaccessible, they'll try the next business day

Well what if it’s not amazon drivers. I have a feeling it’s a courier .

Item tracking starts with TBCxxxxxxxxxx

Actually does say Delivery By AMZCA

Would that indicate courier or amazon driver?

It's a driver contracted by Amazon. It's not Canada Post or anything.

Once they ship the item, you'll get tracking and the courier they're using. Before that there's no way to know for sure. Since your shipment says AMAZCA, that's their own private courier service. If it's undeliverable, they'll reattempt a few times before returning it to Amazon.

With all these rotating strikes from CP and over a month's backlog, anyone know how Amazon is shipping their packages?

If it comes from their Canadian centres.

If it’s a product that comes from their US centre it’s through USPS/CP

If it says Delivery by AMZCA, it'll just be some random guy in plain clothes that will have your package. No couriers, nothing. Most likely your order is coming from their New Westminster fulfilment centre since you're based in Vancouver.
