Not cheap though!!!
Well, all the online systems will let you punch in what you like - just that it might not get delivered! We had that experience with a location in Greenland where the box number was only an internal location and all they had to do was take it to reception. Got as far as Denmark before they decided they didn't like it.

I think that's as good a rate as you might get if it's with DHL/Fedex/UPS.
For a package delivery outside the postal service. can't you just put the street address? Presumably when you go to work, you don't go to a PO Box?
So just tell them the location where you go, making sure they have a daytime telephone number. Is it here? - 99 Street, Seeb. It's a big enough place to get plenty of deliveries, so guess most of the courier firms must know where it is.
