CourierPost is now using its digital track-and-trace system to cut the time it takes to provide senders of registered letters and parcels proof that their item has been delivered.
The new digital service cuts out the wait of up to five working days for an advice receipt card to be sent back as proof of delivery.
With the new system, the courier scans the item on delivery and gets the recipient’s signature which is uploaded to the CourierPost track and trace.
Using a touch-tone phone, the sender can obtain proof of delivery within three minutes by requesting a fax of the signature from CourierPost.
CourierPost national marketing manager Tim Le Cren says customers will also be able to visit CourierPost Web site, www.courierpost.co.nz, and enter the registered post item’s unique track-and-trace number to view its delivery status.
