Every minute hundreds of people make purchases in online stores. While waiting for the long-awaited package, the customer of the online store must be sure that his purchase will arrive on time and without damage. The development of technology makes it possible to track the path of a postal item from the moment it was sent to the moment it was delivered to the addressee.
Tracking number of the postal item
Any postal item - a parcel, a parcel, or a letter is assigned a postal identifier or tracking number, which usually consists of a 13-digit code. On it, the shipment can be tracked on postal services.
The tracking number serves as proof that the online store actually sent the package. When tracking on any postal service, you can see if the package has been sent to the correct address. If an error occurs, there is time to contact the sender and correct the shipping address.
A long delay at any stage of delivery can serve as a signal that the shipment has been lost. You can contact the postal operator in time and start searching. Information about the weight of the parcel is very important. Too obvious discrepancies in weight when sending and delivering a parcel may mean that the parcel has been opened. Upon receipt of the parcel by mail, it is necessary to check the attachment.
Services for tracking mail messages
All email tracking services can be divided into two groups: public and private. Government services refer to the government postal service, while private services are developed and owned by individuals or firms. The state postal service of Russia includes the Russian Post, the website www.russianpost.ru/Tracking20/.
There are a lot of private postal services, for example: www.trackitonline.ru, www.post-tracker.ru, www.gdeposylka.ru. When asked in any search engine, a whole list of additional postal services will appear. Private services can process several tracks at the same time; information is obtained by requesting a state site. Which one to choose is just a matter of the convenience of the interface for the user.
