Use Google to Track UPS and FedEX Packages [Quick-Tip]

UPS Logo :: groovyPost.comThis How-To is a Quick and Simple tip which I use anytime I make a purchase or have something shipped to me.

 

Simply paste your UPS or FedEX Tracking Number into Google to get the link to the Shipment Tracking Page.

 

Use Google to track UPS and FedEx Shipments

 

Now granted, although I’m mentioning Google specifically, the same process can also be used using all the major search engines – Live.com, Yahoo.com, etc.

 

For a twist, you can also get a graphical display of the package tracking information info over at http://boxoh.com/.   Some groovy code using maps.google.com.  It’s fun but for me, a little too flashy.  Usually, all I want to know is “Where is my package!!!!”

    This is why I’m a long-time reader! Great tip. I had no idea it was so easy.

    Thnx

    BTW – I tested this with ask.com and it works but it didn’t take me to the exact tracking site like Google and Yahoo did. just FYI

    Cool tip! Didn’t know about this one. Time saver for sure.

  3. Just a note, in the screenshot you have the tracking number censored in the Google results, but not in the search box.

  4. @Andrew – Good stuff! Thanks for the FYI! Funny how I missed that “small” detail!

    I am always intrigued by the secrecy that people associate with tracking numbers. What are you afraid of happening? Especially with something that must have been delivered a while ago.

  6. @Jason – You are correct, there is nothing “Sensitive’ contained in the Tracking data from UPS. The only thing that “might” be sensitive is the City which UPS delivered the product.

    Personally, I censored that information from the Article in order to prevent it from distracting from the Article itself. Judging from the comments, I’m not sure if that worked. (Grin)
