SMS Tracking

You can find out the status of your shipments by setting up UPS SMS Tracking when tracking online. Simply opt into the service to begin tracking with SMS. To do so:

  1. Go to, enter your tracking or InfoNotice number into the tracking area located on the left side of the screen, and select Track. You will be redirected to the Tracking Detail page.
  2. From the Tracking Detail page, add SMS notifications by selecting Request Status Updates.
  3. When selecting the type of notification, select SMS Text, then select Add New Number, and enter your mobile number to opt in.
  4. Select the checkbox to confirm that you agree to the UPS SMS Program Terms of Use and the UPS Privacy Policy.
  5. Select Submit, then confirm your request from your mobile phone. Once confirmed, UPS will send you SMS text messages with your tracking status for this one shipment. You will not be asked to verify your request from your phone again unless you choose to opt-out* of the service.
