Luggage transfers in Switzerland

Is there a luggage transfer service - station to.station - From one city to the next destination? Can it be sent on the same day that we board the train and be available for pick up at the same time when we get to our destination? That would save us from carrying it if we wanted to stop over in a city before we get to.our final.destination. Alternatively can
the station store the luggage for a few days after arrival?
Can the luggage be sent from a city in Switzerland to Austria e.g. Konstanz to Salzburg.

Yes, it is available between major (manned) stations only.
There is a door-to-door service at extra cost, so you don't have to go to the station to pick up your luggage.

Can it be sent on the same day that we board the train and be available for pick up at the same time when we get to our destination?

No, it does not travel on the same train as you. "Drop off your luggage today and collect from your destination station the day after tomorrow."

There is a service to Germany only, not to Austria.
But, Konstanz is not in Austria, it is in Germany. For the German service "Drop off your luggage by 7 p.m. today and collect it a couple of days later from your destination address in Germany."

The station-to-station service options used to be faster, but they changed in (I think) June, 2018. The door-to-door service has an express option, but with extra fees both for door-to-door and for express (which apply per group, not per bag).
