Re: Swisspost - parcel tracking not clear

Contacted local swisspost office today,

I was told, "7 October, 10:13: Delivered to the mailbox/letterbox 1310 Daillens Base de distribution", meant that the parcel is delivered in the final letterbox at my home (1026 Denges) and it was handled by 1310 Daillens Base de distribution people.

And you don't have it with you?

What did they have to say about that then?

Re: Swisspost - parcel tracking not clear

Up until about this year economy packets coming through Daillens logistics center were delivered on the next day after their shipment.
Now it almost always takes at least two days.

Recently they've also somehow mishandled a small packet purchased at Digitec.
The packet was announced to the Post on a Saturday, and next Monday morning it went from their facilities in Härkingen to Daillens.
Then the estimated delivery was set to Tuesday, then to Wednesday, and on Wednesday to "unknown".

Then on Friday I received a message from Digitec about a refund without any further explanations.

I didn't find the parcel in the letterbox.
The post office people informed me that they dropped the parcel in the letterbox and it's not their responsibility afterwards. Maybe someone stole the parcel.

Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts. I will opt delivery with signature hereafter whenever possible.

Looks like I was correct all along But it sucks to be right when the package is not where it supposed to be

Did you look in both compartments of your letter box? You wouldn't be the first one which discovers that Swiss letterboxes have two compartments. Also check with your neighbors may be they got it. Also, is it expected to fit in the letterbox?

Only letters are delivered by the friendly postal worker from your local post office. Parcels are delivered independently from the letters and from other places.
Not in our village. Same person delivers both.

I referred to actual tracking data from a recent delivery when I made my post. It would seem that Die Post is not consistent with the way it presents tracking information.

It's the system. A parcel from Zurich to me will first be delivered (by a huge truck amongst tons of other parcels) to Frauenfeld. From there the postman will drive it half way back to me in his van and drop it in my mailbox the next time.

Re: Swisspost - parcel tracking not clear

Am I the only one who is curious what the OP actually ordered on the internet?

I asked if they were a troll.

You're a full time troll and everybody contributes to your threads.

I cannot reveal the contents of the parcel but please find the screenshot of the swisspost tracking page. The tracking number is removed to maintain privacy.

As suggested by SwissInTheUS, the parcel was indeed handled by Daillens distribution.

"Delivered to letterbox 1310 Dailens de distribution" meant the parcel has reached its final delivery point & it was processed by Dailens people.

This is in English. What's up with your French quoting in the op?

And very clear. It was delivered to the base de distribution in 1310 Daillens and from there to you in 1226 Denges. (Where ever those towns are, LOL).

So, what ever it was - do you actually HAVE it now?

It says exactly the same thing as in the OP, some of the words are French.

Yeah, it does actually. LOL. Where did I see all the French stuff?
Sorry, I often don't know which language I'm in as switching is often demanded in a matter of seconds and even in the middle of a sentence. It' a déformation professionelle.
