Chronopost pick-up/drop-off points: what are they, and how do they work?

Chronopost local depots and pick-up points are shops or businesses where customers can ship or retrieve their parcels. Whenever shipping with Chronopost, you can choose to send the package to a pick-up point instead of receiving it at home. Another advantage is that Chronopost pick-up points allow customers to receive packages and not give a personal address.

If you decide to ship or send a package from a Chronopost pick-up or drop-off location, you will have to do so during their working hours. Some of these locations are open during weekends which gives more freedom to senders and receivers who cannot collect or drop off parcels during normal working days/hours. Currently, there are about 17,500 Chronopost local depots and pick-up points available throughout metropolitan France. You can locate the closest pick-up point on the company’s webpage.

Frequently asked questions about Chronopost shipping services

Who delivers Chronopost in the UK?
Chronopost offers deliveries to the UK on their own website, but they do not deliver parcels themselves. Since Chronopost is a part of the DPD Group, your Chronopost UK delivery will be carried out by DPD. Read more about how deliveries with DPD work.
How does the Chronopost tracking number work and where can I get it?
When shipping with a Chronopost service that offer tracking, you will receive the tracking number that can be used to follow the progress of your delivery. The Chronopost tracking number will come in the receipt if shipping from a local shop or via email/digital confirmation if booking the delivery online.
When shipping with Eurosender, if our platform selects Chronopost international service to carry out your shipping service, you will be provided with a Chronopost tracking number. We will send it to you via email. The Chronopost tracking number will become functional once the shipment is first scanned in one of Chronopost’s local depots.
How can I check the status of my parcel with Chronopost?
To follow the transit of your shipment booked with us, you can use the Chronopost tracking number on our tracking tool or the Chronopost website. If the status of your parcel with Chronopost is not updated for more than 48 hours, contact us via chat as soon as possible and our customer support team will assist you.
