The United States Postal Service provides online resources to track items sent with the company. Each item sent is assigned a tracking number, which is listed on the label of the item. Depending on the shipping option you select, your tracking information will vary.
- Go to the USPS website
Direct your browser to www.usps.com. The "Quick Tools" to the left of the screen show a "Track" option.
- Enter the tracking number
Enter your item's tracking number in the box below the "Track" option. You can enter up to 10 tracking numbers at a time.
- Receive tracking information
After searching, the web page displays the tracking status of your item. If you shipped your item with Priority Mail Express, then the information includes point-by-point tracking information. Other services, such as Certified Mail and Registered Mail, show only when the item is sent for delivery.
