A division of Torstar Corporation, Metroland publishes more than 70 community and daily newspapers delivered to 147,000 Ontario postal codes by a network of 15,000 delivery contractors.

Metroland’s facility hubs, distribution networks and expertise, in addition to the upward trajectory of e-commerce, ideally positions the organization to successfully extend its services into parcel delivery for retail clients and distributors, Torstar Group of Companies head of parcel services Mike Banville said.
