However, not all companies propose this service. With Ship24, you can track your package on the website homepage, even if you ordered delivery with another shipping company. Ship24 works as a universal tracking tool, it means that it doesn’t matter which company is used for your parcel delivery from China to Greece, you will always be able to track it through the Ship24 website.
To track your package on Ship24, you just have to:

  • Go on the Ship24 homepage
  • Copy-paste your tracking number in the search bar
  • Click on the arrow button to enter

After these 3 steps, you’ll normally receive all the tracking details related to your parcel delivery:

  • The order status
  • The current location of the package
  • The transporter name
  • The next steps of the delivery
  • The final date of the delivery

If when you click on the arrow to enter you don’t receive these tracking details, it can be due to two reasons:

  • This first reason can be related to the order number. Customers often enter the order number in the search bar, instead of the tracking number, because they often look very similar. However, it is impossible to track a parcel with the order number. To check which one is the tracking number, you can check the confirmation email you received just after your delivery purchase.
  • The second reason is more technical and can be due to the system. Sometimes, it is better to try to track your parcel the day after your delivery purchase or at least to wait for a couple of hours, to let the system receive all the tracking details.

If after one day you are still not able to see the tracking details, you can send a message to Ship24 through the contact page, an agent will get back to you within the shortest delays and solve the issue.
