We make it easy to see where your shipment is when you track. Because we assign a tracking number (this is a number that typically starts with a 1Z) to each package, you'll know about your shipment's progress when it's scanned as it moves through the UPS system.
When you track your shipment on ups.com, you get the latest status and estimated delivery date. And while you don’t need to log in to see this information, you can get more details, like reference numbers and C.O.D. requirements, and take action on packages you’ve sent when you’re logged in.
Here are a few ways online tracking can help make your life easier.:
Take advantage of the Description field on the online Tracking page. If you're keeping track of multiple shipments, it's helpful to add a shipment description for each so you can distinguish between packages. Try adding something as simple as "baby toys" and see how easy it is to sort and manage your tracking numbers.
