What is the Post up to?

I order something from Galaxus, and when I go to tracking, I see this:

Mon 24.06.2019 14:15 Consignment recorded by sender (data delivered) 3030 Bern Hauptsitz Die Post
Mon 24.06.2019 18:18 Sorting - forwarding 8902 Urdorf Sortierstelle
Tue 25.06.2019 16:38 Sorting - forwarding 4000 Basel Distributionsbasis
Wed 26.06.2019 00:34 Sorted for delivery 4620 Härkingen Paketzentrum
Wed 26.06.2019 16:26 Sorting - forwarding 4000 Basel Distributionsbasis
Thu 27.06.2019 00:32 Sorted for delivery 4620 Härkingen Paketzentrum


Basel -> Härkingen -> Basel -> Härkingen ... Usually it just goes to Härkingen then it's delivered.
I wonder if it'll be delivered today?

I think someone (or some machine) screwed up. Seeing as Harkingen had it early this morning, you should have it today.

Yeah, but they had it early yesterday morning as well! It did arrive this afternoon though.

Re: What is the Post up to?

I got a zalando its on its way email a day before I got the post consignment email..usually the post consignment email comes first stating they have a contract to deliver... so I guess the IT system is a bit wonky atm

Re: What is the Post up to?

It is, I send parcels almost on a daily basis, the system updates come very late (lately only after 22h00), even for the oversized items that the Postman picks up at our workshop early morning 07h30.



Also the Daillens (VD) sorting centre seems to add an extra day to any shipment I have sent out over the last month or so.

Glad I'm not alone...only problem is, it was despatched last Monday and I was supposed to receive it on Friday 28th at the latest. Grrr...

Yep, it seems a consistent thing. For my international shipments these days it's not even worth it to book priority. Daillens will delay it so much that it has the same turnover time as economy

Re: What is the Post up to?

It used to be that any purchased from Brack arrived the next day but now they're stuck for a day (and sometimes for two days) in Daillens.

Re: What is the Post up to?

Probably the people in Inenndienst in Harkingen put it in the wrong sorting wagon. It goes out, is picked up as wrong and then sent back. Happens all the time.

Re: What is the Post up to?

Just a general advice:
If you didn't verify your address with the Swiss post website yet, do it now. Don't wait till a package is due to arrive- it'll be too late by then.

I recently received a parcel through the Swiss post.
I had their regular tracking URL and I tried to postpone the delivery time.

Only then was I introduced to the following process:
1. They won't trust that you are the intended recipient, even though you somehow obtained their secured link with the parcel's data.
2. In order to trust you, you must first register on their website (Swiss post) and then find an option in there to confirm your address.
3. Then they send you a secret code via snail mail and you have to input it in their website when it arrives a few days later.

I was really pissed off, trying to postpone a delivery for the next day and finding out it depended on a secret code via a regular letter

Hope I've saved someone to go through the same experience.
