Australia - Couriers
AusPost is a government-owned logistics provider in Australia. AusPost, also known as Australia Post, is the national postal service for the country and has been operational for over 200 years. Today, it represents one of the biggest logistics services in the region, offering not only domestic and international delivery options for Australian citizens but last-mile delivery and logistics for international deliveries, particularly regarding eCommerce from China.
As with any major logistics operator, it offers tracking on all registered parcels sent. This gives both merchants who sell orders and post with AusPost and individuals who use it for private mail, the ability to track parcels from dispatch to delivery. Tracking has become an industry-standard feature on all package delivery and AusPost is no different. AusPost main partners and competitors in the region and the world include PhilPost, Japan Post, China Post, DHL, UPS, USPS, and so on.
An AusPost tracking number will usually follow a certain formula, being made up of a set of unique characters which will be unique to each parcel. An example of the common collection of letters and numbers which will make up an AusPost tracking number can be seen below:

The traditional method: Since AusPost tracking and AusPost tracking numbers were introduced by the postal operator, most people have tracked with them directly. However, this can be problematic. AusPost does not handle end-to-end tracking on some parcel deliveries, especially international, where other couriers and logistics handlers are subcontracted to handle delivery in other countries where AusPost doesn't have the capacity. This is common practice with international deliveries but does leave people wondering how to track their parcels worldwide, which is where Ship24 has stepped in.
The new tracking method: Millions of people, tired of switching websites to get tracking for various couriers are turning to the new tracking method; multicarrier tracking websites which specialize in global parcel tracking, such as Ship24.
