About Us

Alopex Couriers was founded by Shawn and Sherill Bateham, November 1st 2011 as a contract courier company. The name Alopex comes from Alopex Lagopus also known as Arctic fox, or White fox. We started with three vans and a contract with Canada Post in Powell River. Since then we have had additional contracts with Canada Post, UPS and contracts with other companies as well. We started delivering UPS parcels in Powell River (Lund – Saltery Bay) and Castlegar in June 2018.  A few months later we started delivering UPS parcels in and around Cranbrook. We have been servicing the majority of the Kootenays since January 2019. With our newest expansion we now deliver for UPS in Kelowna and Kamloops. We currently operate with over 30 trucks across British Columbia.  We aim for exceptional service; we train our drivers to be respectful to the parcels they carry, the customers and each other.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better, If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact us!
