Full Answer

When a package is shipped, it is assigned a tracking number. This is located on the receipt the sender is given by the shipping company. If the package is being shipped from a business, the tracking number should be included with the sales information given to the buyer. This may be present in the buyer's account information if the item was purchased online.

Once the tracking number is located, the website of the specific company has a package tracking link. It should be in an obvious location on the homepage. Fill in the number and press "enter." A table appears telling when and where the package shipped from and where it currently is.

If the recipient is unsure which company is handling the package, sites like PackTrack.com can track packages shipped by several different companies.
