China Post Tracking Number

What is a China Post tracking number?

A China Post tracking number is a unique code that is assigned to every registered parcel or package handled by the China Post. This code helps both buyers, sellers track parcels internationally.

China Post is used a lot by eCommerce merchants, or e-tailers, which is big business in China. This is because China produces and manufactures lots of goods that are sold at relatively low prices, meaning both businesses and consumers make lots of purchases within the country. Naturally, this means that China Post - as one of the most economic postal options available is used regularly.

Please note, any parcel posted with the China Post can be tracked as long as it is registered mail. If it is not registered mail, China Post tracking number information will only be able to be accessed in mainland China. Contact the China Post before sending your parcel to make sure that your package is being sent registered, and therefore will have a China Post tracking number.

What are the types of packages that come with a China Post tracking number?

A China Post tracking number is created on every registered package, no matter how large or small. A unique China Post tracking code will also be produced for its special services, such as China Post Express Mail Service (EMS). The China Post tracking number will be made up of a number of different letters and numbers which will all tell the couriers and logistics companies handling the package the information they need to know in order to deliver it to its final destination,
