How do I track and/or query the parcels I send with New Zealand Couriers?

Single parcel tracking can be done through our website here. Our tracking tool shows all relevant scan events, so you can stay updated with where it is at in its’ journey.

If you use one of our online shipping platforms, you will be able to access tracking information for all the parcels you’ve sent in one place.

You can also opt to have email or text notifications sent to your customers for each major scan event, so they are kept up to date. Learn about Parcel Notifications here. Note: Parcel Notifications are available on approved shipping platforms and our API.

If something ever goes wrong with a delivery, you will be able to quickly lodge a query in our tracking tool.

How quickly can I be set up and start sending my parcels with New Zealand Couriers?

Setting up an account can vary with each set-up type and your requirements.

For a simple prepaid account (peel and stick stickers), we can have you set up in as quick as one day. If an integrated despatch system needs to be set up, the average set-up time is around seven days.

NOTE: We realise that you are very keen to partner with us, and the set-up process may seem lengthy, but much like our deliveries, we are very thorough with our set-up process so that you do not have any hassles after that.

Does it cost extra to get a signature at delivery?

Do New Zealand Couriers have same day collection and despatch services?
