Did you know…

that by having your parcel delivered to a Pick-up Point, you help reduce the CO2 emissions of your parcel by up to 30%?

Perhaps you still have one of these questions

For logistical reasons, you can only choose Pick-up points that are in the same distribution zone as the delivery address. That way our mail distribution is as efficient as 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.

Who can pick up your shipment depends on the type of shipment.

My shipment is a parcel

Anyone can pick up your parcel from a Pick-up Point or Parcel Locker as long as that person has the barcode of your parcel. You can find the barcode in the confirmation email, the My bpost app or on the notice of absence you received in your letterbox.

My shipment is registered mail

You can recognise registered mail by the barcode starting with the numbers ‘010’ or the letter ‘R’. 

Only the specified recipient can pick up registered mail upon presentation of their ID card and the barcode. You can also give a postal mandate to someone else by signing the notice of absence and giving it to the person who will pick up your shipment. More information about giving a postal mandate to pick up registered mail.

A shipment that requires payment upon delivery can be paid for in two ways at a Pick-up point: cash and with debit or credit card.

No, regrettably that is not possible. Change your delivery preferences if you want your parcels to be brought to a different Pick-up point in your neighbourhood in the future, if you are not home.
