Frequently asked questions about Chronopost shipping services
What are Chronopost delivery days and times?
You can dispatch your parcel between 8 am and 10 pm from Monday to Sunday when you want to ship with Chronopost across France and internationally. Chronopost delivery times go beyond regular business hours and days due to longer opening hours of some Chronopost local depots and post offices. In case your parcel is planned to be picked up by a courier at a specified address, then you need to consider that collection/delivery time usually starts from 9 am and is over at 6 pm on business days.
How does the Chronopost tracking number work and where can I get it?
In case our platform chooses Chronopost international service to carry out your shipping service, you will be provided with a Chronopost tracking number. We will send it to you in the confirmation e-mail. The tracking code will become functional only when the shipment will be scanned in the Chronopost’s local depots.

How can I check the status of my parcel with Chronopost?
To follow the transit of your shipment, the Chronopost tracking number can be inserted directly in the tracking tool below or on the Chronopost website. If the status of your parcel with Chronopost does not update for more than 48 hours, contact us and our customer support team will assist you.
What are the Chronopost maximum dimensions and standard parcel dimensions?
Chronopost standard parcels should weight up to 30 kg. For the Chrono Relais services, packages should weight equal to or less than 20 kg. At the same time, the sum of the length + 2 heights + 2 widths must not exceed 300 cm, and the length must not exceed 150 cm.
As for the Chrono Relais services, the sum of the length + 2 heights + 2 widths must not exceed 250 cm, and the length must not exceed 100 cm. Parcels that exceed these specifications will have, as a result, an “Outsized” additional cost added. Keep in mind that non-standard packages are not eligible for the Chrono Relais Service.

Currently, there are about 18,500 post offices and pick-up points available, while 8,500 of those have longer opening hours and shorter waiting times. Furthermore, there are 70 Chronopost local depots across Europe and 6 Chronopost storage facilities in French overseas territories.
