FAQ: BPost international parcel shipping

How can I track and trace parcels sent with BPost?
When you are shipping with BPost, you will receive a BPost tracking number that will allow you to locate your parcel during transit. You can find the BPost tracking number under the barcode on the shipping label. To locate your parcel, simply introduce the tracking number on the BPost track and trace section on the website or the app. For extra security, you will also have to give the destination postal code.
Once you have introduced both numbers, you will find the tracking status of your BPost parcel on the screen. This status will be updated every time the parcel is scanned at a new depot or shipping hub. If the BPost tracking status does not change in a few days, we recommend that you contact the company directly.
What does it mean if my parcel status says ’your international parcel is ready to be handled by BPost’?
If you get the message that your international parcel is ready to be handled by BPost, it means that the carrier you have shipped with uses Belgian Post for last-mile delivery in Belgium. Once you get this status, it means that the parcel is being transferred from the initial logistics provider to BPost, and it should be delivered shortly.
Can I ship letters with BPost?
Yes, customers can ship letters with BPost within Belgium and from Belgium to the EU and the rest of the world. However, it is important to note that, due to the low volume of letters being sent within the country, BPost decided to deliver letters only twice a week. Hence, the BPost delivery times for letters can be longer than expected.
If you need to send urgent letters or documents, check our Document Shipping Service with fast delivery times around the world.
What time will BPost deliver my package?

What can I do if I missed my BPost delivery?
It depends on your shipping preferences.
