La Poste tracking

What is La Poste?

French company La Poste is the postal service subsection of parent company Le Groupe La Poste. La Poste's one of the oldest postal services in France and has built a solid reputation for postal services and continues to be the go-to option for parcel delivery, especially for people in France.

While Groupe La Poste operates various services through subsections, such as banking and insurance with La Banque Postale and telecommunications through La Poste Mobile, it is predominantly focused on logistics through both La Poste and its international logistics counterpart, GeoPost.

La Poste is still a market-leading parcel delivery service within the company, and profits from La Poste represent about half of Group La Poste's company income. This is despite increasing competition within the sector from other postal services and private couriers, such as PostNL, DHL, and others. La Poste and GeoPost, although operating under the same parent company, are different entities and deal with mail differently. Tracking your La Poste parcel effectively can be difficult if your parcel should pass between these two different handlers, even though they are technically connected. Ship24 is a universal tracking tool that allows users to track their La Poste parcel both when it is with La Poste (perhaps when it has first been dispatched from an area in France) to when it reaches an international destination may be handed to another courier for the final leg (known as the last mile) of the journey.

This is because Ship24 is a global tracking platform with the ability to track over 900 couriers and thousands of online shops simultaneously, meaning that whether or not your parcel should change hands, all your tracking information can still be found in one place, on Ship24. Whether you are using La Poste or GeoPost for your parcel delivery handler, track your parcel with Ship24 to ensure you can keep track of your parcel at every step of its journey.

Where will my La Poste package be processed?

La Poste parcels are not guaranteed to pass through any particular La Poste address or warehouse. La Poste operates several sorting warehouses and processing centers. Which one handles your parcel will depend on the origin of your parcel and its final destination. However, La Poste also has other branches and offices that do not deal with post directly, and therefore your package will not pass through these addresses. There, La Poste customers should not expect their tracking to show that their parcel is at the La Poste head office.

Nevertheless, La Poste head office is located at the following address:
9, st Colonel Pierre Avia,
75015 Paris,
France.

If you want to know where your parcel is, where it is being processed or its current status at any point, you can use Ship24's universal tracking site just by heading to the Ship24 website. Ship24 has the capability of tracking with multiple couriers and as soon as you enter your tracking number, it will scan thousands of online sources to find the relevant information on your package. This service can be used up to 10 times for 10 different couriers, in just one search! With Ship24, you can also keep up to date on the status of your parcel which is useful for a number of reasons:

  • Delivery information: Knowing the location and status of your parcel will help you know when it is going to be delivered. Although you should receive an estimated delivery date when you first send your parcel from the online marketplace or the seller, tracking your parcel with Ship24 will allow you to know when it has reached a local courier depot and/or is out for delivery. With this information, you can have the best chance of making sure someone will be at the destination to receive the parcel if it is required. Also, it helps sellers know when their product has been delivered (For instance, so they can send feedback forms to customers to review their product/service).
  • Processing complications: If your parcel is being sent internationally, it may need to be checked or processed at customs which can cause some complications, especially if an issue is found during processing. Ship24 keeps you up to date with the customs process, by sending status notifications (known as events) as soon as they happen. Therefore, if while tracking a parcel a person receives a notification saying there is a problem at customs, they can proceed accordingly.

We understand that being fully informed on your shipment tracking information is important, which is why Ship24 has been designed to keep you in the know when it comes to tracking our La Post package.

Whats the best way to track my La Poste parcel effectively?

The latter is recommended as the best option as there is no need to log in or enter details about your parcel, instead, you just need your La Poste tracking number.

  • Individuals tracking
  • Professional tracking

If you choose the individual option, you will need to enter your La Poste tracking number in the search bar and click on search to get results. However, if your parcel has been outsourced to another courier (which can often be the case if it is an international delivery), the most up-to-date may not always be available. To get the latest, use the multi-courier tracking system by Ship24. You don't need to select a type of service, just enter your original tracking number and start tracking your parcel, instantly!

If you are a professional, you will have the possibility to put one or several La Poste tracking numbers in the search bar at the same time. So for example, if you want to track a number of La Poste parcels, you just need to enter each tracking number separated by a semi-colon.

Does La Poste deliver on weekend?

La Poste delivers from Monday to Saturday (excluding public holidays). The La Poste delivery timeframe will depend on which delivery option the customer or seller has chosen. However other factors, such as the destination and size and weight of the parcel can also delay delivery times.

Delays in postage delivery may also occur in unusual circumstances, such as if adverse weather conditions make transportation unfeasible or if local couriers are overwhelmed with deliveries, such as during holiday periods.

Regardless, using Ship24 to track a La Poste parcel means It doesn't matter if your post is in transit on Friday morning at 3 am or being processed at customs on Sunday night, Ship24 will let you know in as near time as possible any change in location or status on your parcel.

Can a third-party tracking platform find my La Poste parcel?

Yes, third-party tracking platforms, such as Ship24, are recommended when tracking parcels sent with La Post because the postal services often use other couriers to help with delivery, especially when it comes to international parcels and packages. Track La Poste parcels for free at any time.

La Poste delivers to many regions worldwide, with about 40 different countries listed as available for shipping options. However, the majority of La Poste warehouses are located in France and the majority of the deliveries and operations are also made in France. French merchants often use La Poste to take care of the delivery of their parcels. To reach other customers through Europe, in Germany, Poland, or again the Netherlands to be more precise, La Poste works with its logistic service GeoPost.

Like many other postal services based predominantly within a country, such as China Post and Russian Post, international deliveries will usually be subcontracted outside of their respective countries. This means items shipped with La Post typically are handed over to other couriers, with tracking options varying depending on the courier the delivery is taken over by. With Ship24, however, you can keep tracking your parcel no matter where it goes or who it is being handled by, thanks to its universal, multi-courier tracking capability!

Ship24 doesn't need the person tracking the parcel to know who is handling your parcel and you do not need to enter any more details into the Ship24 if your parcel changes hands.

How do I ensure my La Poste parcel is IOSS registered?

The EU's Import One-Stop-Shop (IOSS) system is a new import scheme that is designed to benefit eCommerce businesses and distance sellers who sell to buyers across its 27 member states. It promises faster delivery times and simplified VAT payments for both customers and businesses. This is because firstly, all VAT will be included and paid for by the customer at the point of sale, meaning that there is full transparency on payments and no hidden fees can be added afterward. As VAT will be prepaid, customs processing of IOSS packages will be vastly reduced, meaning faster delivery times, again benefitting all stakeholders. Finally, IOSS VAT payments which will be collected first by the business or marketplace can then be paid in one monthly payment to one monthly EU tax authority via their IOSS fiscal intermediary (which will be based in one EU country and pay VAT owed on the company's behalf).

Ship24 is offering full IOSS fiscal intermediary services for businesses and marketplaces that need EU representation for IOSS registration. Not only are we accredited to do so, but our best-in-class support will walk you through the registration process and help you provide all of the needed documentation to get an IOSS number as soon as possible, sometimes within as little as 2 days! We also provide ongoing VAT compliance support to make sure you meet all EU obligations and can take full advantage of the benefits of IOSS.
