La Poste Tracking Number package tracking

Where can I find my La Poste tracking number?

When receiving or sending a package from La Poste, you should receive a tracking number depending on the service you have availed. You can find your La Poste tracking number from the receipt, the parcel itself, or via email or phone number that you have provided to the company. It is usually under the bar code.

Do not confuse your tracking number with your order number. The difference between the two is that the tracking number is used to track the whereabouts of your parcel while an order number is the number of the product/s you have purchased.

You will not be able to track your parcel with the order number.

What is the best way to track a La Poste parcel?

There are two ways to track your La Poste parcels. Firstly, you can head over to La Poste's website and from there you can enter your tracking number. Secondly, you can use Ship24's universal tracking for fast, convenient, and efficient parcel tracking.

Once you are on La Poste's website, you will be given two options to track your parcels. The options are individual tracking or professional tracking.

If you chose the "individual tracking option", you can input your tracking number in the search bar and press search to track the parcels. The only inconvenience is if your parcel is outsourced to another courier, which can sometimes happen on international shipping. When this happens, up-to-date information may not be available or is delayed.

If you chose the "professional tracking option", you can track several La Poste tracking numbers all at one search. While this is very convenient, you would have to separate each tracking number by a semi-colon. This could be very time-consuming.

Ship24 gives you the option to track your parcels in a short amount of time within a few seconds. Whether it is one parcel or many, all you have to do is copy the La Poste tracking number, put it on the search bar, search for results and Ship24 will do its magic! You will also be able to find out all details about the parcel from the location it is on and the date it arrived/will arrive.

Ship24 also offers La Poste tracking API for advanced multi-courier tracking. It is perfect for your business since it can determine which parcel or package is being handled by any courier using the original tracking number. In other words, if your package is with La Poste or another courier, Ship24 is able to provide you with that information. Incorporate your system with Ship24's tracking API to improve your tracking potential.

How long does it take for La Poste to deliver?

The delivery time will vary depending on how big and how heavy the parcel is. La Poste has different services and tariffs for each type of parcel.

Sending a letter to the UK or the US would take an ETA of around 3 to 8 days. Although you would have to pay extra if you wanted that letter to come with a tracking number.

If you are sending standard parcels (weighing up to 30 kilograms) to the UK, the duration of the delivery can take up to 3 to 8 days. It is a bit pricey but the parcel comes with a tracking number.

If you have extra cash and are looking to expedite the delivery, you can use the Chronopost service. The package has an ETA of 2 to 6 days and if you add in a little bit more cash. It can arrive in 1 to 3 days.

Meanwhile, shipping to the US will take some time and you might have to spend a little more on delivery. The duration of its arrival to its destination will take around 12 to 41 working days. It still depends on the size, weight, and volume of the package.

What do I do if I did not receive a La Poste tracking number?

The courier or the seller should provide you with a tracking number once you have purchased a product. Most of the time, the tracking number is given on the receipt or sent via a confirmation email or phone number. On the receipt, you should be able to find an 11 to 15 digit number.
