Tracking API

Give your customers access to package tracking information through your website. Not only can you decrease customer service calls, but you may find a boost in over-all site traffic as customers utilize the Tracking Application Programming Interface (API).

Available in over 40 countries, the Tracking API lets you provide up-to-the-minute shipment status reports, domestic and international, to customers right from your website.

It's available in a basic HTML version as well as a more advanced XML version. The HTML tool lets you simply copy HTML code to your site to gain the functionality and look of UPS Tracking in local languages. The XML tool gives you greater flexibility by allowing your programmers to format the tracking data to suit your website or application's design and layout.

The XML version requires XML/Web Services programmers to code and integrate. UPS provides a developer kit which includes a developer guide that explains how to integrate and code UPS functionality into your existing business applications or e-Commerce website.
