What Is The Tracking Number?

The tracking number enables express companies, shippers, and recipients to track the information; it can let you check where the package is, its shipping status, when it will arrive, etc.

You may be able to call the carrier's customer service to describe your package and get the tracking number back, but that's not always the case.
