A courier tracking system is a software application that allows customers to track the status of their packages in real-time. Here’s how it typically works:

  1. A unique tracking number is assigned to each package when it is shipped.
  2. The courier company scans the package at different stages of its journey, such as when it is picked up, arrives at a sorting facility, and is loaded onto a delivery truck.
  3. The tracking information is sent to the courier company’s server, where it is stored in a database.
  4. The customer can access the tracking information using the tracking number, either on the courier company’s website or through a mobile app.
  5. The customer can see the package’s status in real-time, including its location and estimated delivery time.
  6. If there are any delays or issues with the package, the tracking system will show this information to the customer.

Overall, a courier tracking system provides customers with transparency and peace of mind, as they can track their packages throughout the entire delivery process.
