Frequently Asked Questions

My package appears in Track & Trace as "Freight terminal - en route", what does that mean?

This means that the package has arrived at a freight terminal and the package in the carrier's freight terminal. Urgent shipments, letter post and passengers are prioritized before parcels on aircraft, which may mean that transport of the parcel is postponed by the carrier.

Why can't I pick up a package when it says "Arrived - not ready to pick up" on the Track & Trace page?

This is because Tusass must prepare the shipment for delivery. It can be customs control or preparation to place the shipment on a parcel shelf or in a delivery machine.

How can I get in touch with my local Tusass store?

You can see addresses and opening hours at all Tusass stores here. Otherwise you can write to or call 341255.

Can you do Track & Trace on a DHL Express package?

Yes! You can do Track & Trace here on Tusass' website. DHL Express packages can be tracked on the shipment's piece ID (JD ....), which can be found by tracking the shipment's 10-digit number on Use this 'JD' number when tracking on A J + consignment JD number must be added (Example: JJD0100000 ...). The 10-digit number can be used in some cases, but Tusass first scans the JJD number when sending from Copenhagen.

DHL Express packages can also be followed on, but the Track & Trace information about Greenland is not physical scans, but information that is inserted on DHL's website without the package having been scanned. It is therefore recommended to use Tusass' website.

Who can I contact if I have questions about my letter or package?

You can contact your local Tusass store or send an email to
