Hi,
I've been living here for about 5 years now but I never seem to get when does the Post actually deliver the mail and what days?

Re: What are the times Swiss Post deliver their mail?

I usually find our mail has arrived between 12:00 and 1:30, Monday through Saturday.


Of course this will vary for everyone, depending on where you are on the postman's route.

Unfortunately for the OP they do not have 3 million postal workers to deliver nationwide at the exact same time.

And your postal worker might change how he does his daily route, luckily he has such freedom and is not on the clock like the metro drivers.

Re: What are the times Swiss Post deliver their mail?

Depends where you are and also where you are in relation to the start / finish of the postman tour..??!!

We are in a small village, the postman comes between 07.55 - 08.05 every day. It's always the same postman, he knows us, he knows our neighbours, if we missed him because we are taking the kids to school he will catch us in the street and give us a parcel / signed for letter instead of leaving a card.


Joy of a small village.. Your experience may vary

Re: What are the times Swiss Post deliver their mail?

Delivery? Generally Monday to Saturday. Time? Depends, as said, where you are in the post person's delivery cycle, whether they have a lot of packages that need to be signed for, etc. Here in our commune our post person generally delivers between 10.15am and 11.20am, Saturdays usually done by 9am or 9.30am since there's less they have to deliver at the weekend.

Had a small package to be signed for today and the post person arrived just after 11am.

He doesn't and he is.

There are two types, OP: One brings the letters etc. and the other the parcels. Mail comes Mo-Sa, parcels normally only Mo-Fr.
As the others said, it depends where you live and where on his/her route you are.

You can make an email-account with the post and they will inform you if you are to receive parcels or registered letters and when. But it will say something like "between 10.30 and 13.30h" for parcels, so that might not help.

Re: What are the times Swiss Post deliver their mail?

My experience has been they're there whenever I'm not there. On saturdays letters usually arrive by lunchtime, they might be earlier but I tend not to leave the bed until lunch anyways.
Parcels I usually get delivered via my neighbour. I supply chocolate or whiskey depending on the mood that takes me and my neighbour provides packages. Saves me a trip to the post depot.

TL DR
Letters are random, for packages ask your neighbour to collect if you can't be there.

Re: What are the times Swiss Post deliver their mail?

Somewhen.

The post itself does not make any claim or guarantee when the mail be delivered each day.
https://www.post.ch/en/about-us/subj...vices/delivery

2010 they tested late deliver up to 14:00, some regions even 17:00
https://www.blick.ch/news/wirtschaft...id1404073.html

2011 they had an internal order that mail should be delivered by 12:30.

As you say it depends where you live. The normal mail and the parcels are all delivered by the same person here. We are towards the end of the round and receive our post between about 11.30 and 12.30 every day.
Exceptionally if we've had a very large package (such as a guitar) or a priority delivery they will deliver to us at the start of the round and we get it at around 8 o' clock.
