Tracking your parcel is one of the most popular tools when it comes to any form of parcel delivery. While not all types of parcels can be tracked, depending on the service that you are using, parcel tracking can allow you to ensure that your parcel will be received at the right destination, at the time that it is supposed to be. The level of tracking that some couriers provide is completely dependent on each individual courier.
For example, some couriers can provide you with regular text updates in relation to your parcel, telling you who the driver will be that is collecting your parcel, which vehicle they will be driving, their estimated time of arrival at your collection point and whether or not there are any delays with them collecting your parcel. They can then provide you with regular updates throughout the delivery process, until the parcel has been received at its final destination.
However, some couriers will provide basic tracking details that can allow you to know the status of your parcel (i.e. awaiting collection, collected, in transit, arrived), through the use of an online tracker using your booking reference number. Here at Parcel Delivery, we have a simple tool that is very similar to this, allowing you to track the location of your parcel no matter which courier you are looking to use. You can use our tracking tool here.
Tracking is an important tool for a number of people, particularly when shipping valuable, expensive or fragile parcels. While you may not be too worried about tracking a parcel that is heading just around the corner, many people benefit from the peace of mind with a tracking tool – particularly when shipping a parcel or large letter long distance.
Some trackers, such as ours, can provide you with real-time, up-to-date information, so you can be certain to know exactly where your parcel is at all times. Some tracking tools can even allow you to arrange redelivery of a parcel that your recipient may have missed – particularly if this is through recorded or special delivery.
Parcel tracking can ensure that all customers enjoy peace of mind, by knowing that their parcel will get to its correct destination, with every delivery.
