Can I request to have my parcel kept at a Pick-up point for longer than normal?
Regrettably, this is not possible. Your parcel remains available at a Pick-up point for 14 calendar days and at a Parcel Locker for 5 calendar days. After that it will be sent back to the sender.
My parcel seems to be stuck somewhere. It has not moved for a while on Track & Trace.
If your parcel was not delivered, check the status of your shipment via Track & Trace or the My bpost app first. If the status of your parcel has not changed for a while (at least 5 workdays for shipments to a neighbouring country, at least 10 workdays for the United Kingdom and all other countries), ask the sender to contact our customer service. Only the sender of your parcel can submit a complaint. If you are the sender, please contact our customer service. It is best to do this via the online form at the bottom of this page. This way, you can immediately provide us with all the necessary information to start an investigation quickly.
I get a message that my parcel has been delivered, but I haven't received anything. What now?
A couple of tips if you have not received anything:
- Check if someone else (your neighbour or flatmate) has received your parcel.
- If it is a small parcel, the postman may have delivered it to your letterbox without ringing the doorbell.
- Your parcel may also have been delivered according to your delivery preferences (directly to a Pick-up point, to your safe location or to your neighbour).
- Also make sure that you have not received a failed delivery notice from the postman in your letterbox. It will tell you where your parcel has gone to.
When can I follow my parcel with Track & Trace?
As soon as bpost has received your shipment, you can track its progress via the My bpost app or Track & Trace using the barcode. You will often receive an email from the sender when your barcode is created. In most cases, you will not be able to track your parcel immediately via our Track & Trace. This is because it is still being prepared by the sender and therefore has not yet been handed over to bpost. As soon as the sender hands your parcel over to bpost, you will be able to track it.
