Hi,

The above delivery service was launched on 1 October. Has anyone got a delivery from them yet?

An item I am waiting on shipped yesterday at 4pm and I’m told it will be delivered today by 9pm. However, I’m feeling a little cynical it will be delivered today.

It's possible .

I know that large items delivery direct from the Parcel Hub have been done by An Post as late as 8pm ( though as far as I know not on a Saturday )

Edit, I see this is their new delivery service from their consolidation warehouse in rathcoole. (didn't realise it had already opened)

I got an update and my item will be delivered today (Sunday) by 9PM. You can track it too on a map. It also says it’s 6 stops away and you can also cancel the delivery if you wish or leave delivery instructions i.e. an access code or leave the item in a safe place.

Was pleasantly surprised yesterday. Got a notification along with a map for tracking the delivery. Got the delivery no problem

Item delivered just now. Great service delivering on a Sunday. Wonder if this is just temporary while it’s being launched or will be ongoing?

Are you in Dublin? I'm hoping my orders will be delivered by Amazon Logistics now as An Post are always late recently.

You can track the an post parcel in real time from the text notification.

I can see exactly where the delivery van is whenever I get an post delivery. Usually it is within the same 30-45min window every day.

Really? The link in the text is just for rearranging delivery for me. The delivery times are fairly erratic. Some of the time there's no out for delivery scan.

The only courier I've been able to do this for before was DPD and not recently.

My error, it's on the email notification. Click "track my parcel" after clicking on the main link and it gives you the precise location of the van

I've never got any email from An Post, just texts.

The sender has to choose notification type. They can choose both if they want to

Since when?

I've never seen this on any AP tracking.

I've heard of this a few times in the last few months .

My guess is that they are trialing it on certain packages in various offices .
