If you have tried tracking items with Australia Post it does not take long to realise how poor it is compared to courier companies tracking, and tracking on other overseas postal networks. Often there will be no tracking from the date the item is lodged until the date the item is delivered. There can be weeks no no information. The example below shows tracking of an item which shows nothing other than “initiated” after 12 days in the Australia Post tracking system.
