Title: Local tracking number for overseas parcel
Post by: Captain Obvious on July 20, 2021, 12:30:50 pm
Hi all

Does anyone have a contact/ phone number/email address for someone at the Post Office. I have foolishly had bike parts sent from Italy by post, and need to convert the Italian tracking number to a local Post Office number to try and find these. The customer services email and number at the Post Office is not producing results, surprisingly enough.  :imaposer:

Good luck...... I tried tracking a parcel sent from UK in November last year.

The tracking apps took me to when the goods arrived in SA..... and no further. I tried to trace it, but my efforts were futile, to the point where I gave it up as a lost cause.

Low and behold, end of May I received notice to collect at the local Post Office, albeit 6 months later.

Hope you are as fortunate as I was. Patience.

Try this: 0860 111 502
Your parcel's probably held at the large depot behind OR Tambo..... where they do loose parcels, know it.

Thanks Petri, been looking for a parcel from the states for months, just tried this and lone behold it was in Hermanus in May but has been returned to sender. They just never sent a notification that it had arrived. Fuckers!  At least this platform works, no other local tracking has.

Use myus.com and get a free local address in USA.... essentially the USA based supplier ships to the address in Sarasota, Florida (myus warehouse) who then ships to your local address... hassle free and easy to use..... makes the whole US easily accessible for shopping..... ;) :thumleft:

Thanks for all the replies.

At this stage the Italian Post Office app says "has arrived at Centro Internazionale in Jhb for untying", which i would assume means it will clear customs and then vanish forever. The link from Petri does not yet pick it up, hopefully it will be able to track it after untying is complete.
