How can I track my parcel from China to Luxembourg?

We all remember how stressful it was a few years ago when we had to wait for so long for the parcels to arrive, without knowing if it was worth it to wait sometimes or if the parcel had been lost during China to Luxembourg international shipping.
Thanks to the technology of today, it is possible to see at any moment where your parcel is, you have the possibility to track your parcel.
You can do that through a universal tracking platform like Ship24, which allows you to follow any step of the delivery, no matter what shipping company is used for transportation. 
To track your parcel from China to Luxembourg, you just need to follow 3 steps:

  • First, go on the Ship24 home page
  • Copy-paste the tracking number in the search bar
  • Click on the white and blue arrow to enter

It is as simple. After doing that, you will receive all the tracking details related to your package:

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

If you don’t receive the tracking details but instead see the sentence “not found”, it can be due to two options:

  • The first is maybe because you put the order number instead of the tracking number in the search bar. These numbers often look similar and you find them in the email confirmation you received just after making your purchase. You can double-check to see if you put the right number.
  • If you put the tracking number and still don’t receive any details, it may be because the system didn’t receive all the tracking information. Keep in mind that it is often better to start to track your package 1 day after the purchase, the time for the system to receive all the tracking information.

If you have any questions, you can still contact the company through the contact page and leave your message there. An agent will get back to you as soon as possible.
