Enter deliveries into the system or import data from other systems
Option 2: Use your own system
For sending more than 50,000 consignments a year, you might like to use your own warehouse management or ordering system. You can print barcoded labels and shipping information and send eParcel consignments via our suite of APIs.
Option 3: Use a third party system
Are you already using an off-the-shelf third party management system or specialist system? If so, you may be able to integrate this system with eParcel, as most leading freight management systems are compatible.
How you prepare your consignment depends on the option you chose in step 2:

Your freight is now ready for us to collect, or for you to drop off at an Australia Post Business Centre or a selected Post Office. We'll process and scan your freight and assign it to a delivery person.
On final delivery, we scan your freight barcodes and obtain a signature. If no one is available to receive the consignment, we'll follow your instructions to leave it in a safe place, or leave a card so the recipient can collect it from a nearby Post Office.
We'll keep carded consignments for 10 business days (and issue a reminder card half-way through), before returning the consignment to you.
