  • SAPO Track n Trace system sucks big time!

    The SAPO online track and trace system is a total waste of time. There are endless bugs and problems with it. I eneter tracking numbers and every now and then their system throws up results for a completely different number. Either that or they're offline or there are just incomplete results on their system. Item will say "In Transit" months after the person has collected the parcel.

    I agree that it tends to be a bit slow but generally it works OK. I have never had incorrect info displayed. The accuracy of the system depends on whether the SAPO staff keep it up to date. The system works - the people don't......

        The SAPO site does not even open. Have had this problem with it for more that a month now, the loading dial just keeps turning and nothing happens.

        Very annoying.

          I am another one who finds the SAPO system sucks! If it happens to be working, it does sometimes throw up totally incorrect information.

          Their IT staff are definitely not a patch on the BoB IT team! Perhaps we are just spoilt with the excellent service we get on BoB?

              I also find it annoying at times, but strangely the time of day seems to matter when you try and log in. Before 8:00am, no problem, 9:00 to 1:00pm, will only log in sometimes, after 3:00pm, all OK again. Weird.

                Stupid system....Does not even load up 80% of the time.

                I am pretty sure it is not that hard to get it working properly.......

                  Ummm - which internet link are you using? Almost without exception I am able to get this link to work...

                  South African Post Office - Parcel Tracking

                  Every so often, the link comes back with the message:
                  "Parcel number XXXXXXXXX was not found in the database!"

                  And then if you try a few more times, it does show the parcel tracking route - OR the site is down for a minute or two but generally it works extremely well.

                    I use this link:

                      Reason why SAPO Track&Trace sucks... it uses an Oracle database!

                            www sapo.co.za & www.speedservices are unusable MOST of the time. Parcel Track | Parcel Tracking has worked for me every time. Turf the previous 2; the exact same info is available on Parcel Track | Parcel Tracking saving you lots of aggravation.
