This 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.
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!!!!”
