USPS Tracking Mail

USPS Tracking Mail


How do I track my USPS packages?

To track your packages you will need a USPS tracking number that would have been given to you at the point of sale, or as a confirmation email, with this number, you can use the USPS website tracker to monitor your shipment but if you are sending a package internationally then after it leaves the USA then maybe you will struggle somewhat to keep track on where it is as once the couriers get changed over then sometimes the updates aren't correct or the wrong information gets shown.

Secondly, you can use Ship24s universal tracking system to help you with your USPS tracking, here you can enter 10 different tracking numbers where you will be able to find out exact locations with exact updates to give you real-time answers about your item or items, it doesn't matter how many countries it passes through or how many packages you have that are getting sent.

To use the Ship24 tracking system, enter your USPS tracking number it will perform a status search and will update you with the most up-to-date information, it will tell you exactly who has handled your package, in what country, along with what dates it was handed over with even a timestamp on it so in terms of a tracking system this is one of the best-in-class.

What is USPS Informed Delivery?

Informed delivery lets you digitally preview your mail items and manage packages that are scheduled to arrive imminently, the service is completely free to use and has an optional notification service that enables residential customers the ability to digitally vet their letter-sized mail items. It makes it a much more convenient option by allowing customers to view what is in coming to their mailbox wherever they are whenever they want via a smartphone, tablet or computer/laptop.

To sort the delivery of the mail the United States Postal Service digitally photographs the front of the letters that run through automation equipment, and then sends those images to provide notifications to customers in advance of the delivery of physical mail. Informed Delivery helps the whole household and ensures that everyone has track of everything that is incoming, it can let the user take action if needed if there is a mistake with what may be incoming before it hits their mailbox.
