Tracking parcels is becoming more and more the common value adding for e-com parcels. The tracking is offered by most, if not all, postal services/logistics and allows your customer to see where the package is most of the time. The level of visibility depends on the value of the tracking.

The next issue is to locate the tool that will find the specific tracking number. This is because each postal service has their own tracking system and to use this you must be aware of the service that added the tracking. For example, FedEx, USP, UPS and Royal Mail all have their own systems and it can be a challenge for people who rarely use the facility.

A seller can add the tracking number on to the sales advice and use HTML to embed the URL of the tracking service with the number also embedded. Another option is to use the emerging universal-global tracking services. These search the global databases of the logistics companies to locate the data and can display this promptly.

One I have found very recently and it is a free service is 17track. which is now tracking parcels from 132 country logistics companies. This service can track both Post services and Global Logistics services
