USPS tracking to AU stops at Hawaii, when it leaves the USPS system. The next update I get is when I get a letter in the postbox saying come sign for it. So it really isn’t the same as someone like fedex or DHL
An easy way to explain this, there is no USPS offices outside the US and so it is not trackable and if they said they are then they are making things up:) After all, USPS stands for US postal service, not global postal On the other hand, fedex and DHL have offices in most countries so yes it is trackable.
Yes, normal USPS doesn’t track. Yes, there are no USPS offices outside the USA.
Express Mail International though DOES track outside the USA. Express Mail International is part of EMS, Express Mail Services, which is an international coordinated system that covers 169 countries, including AU.
Also note that, in my country anyway, EMS is a “to door” service. No slip from the post office, no picking up the item from the post office. A van stops at my door, demands the VAT/tax payment, then hands over the parcel.
We have seen cases where EMS packages got lost with the tracking number. And of course we are the one who got blamde for that, NOT USPS.
So We can not say that EMS is trackable on our website. But we provide the tracking numbers we get from USPS to our customers anyway.
