Now that your parcel has been labeled and handed over to the courier there are few things you may want to monitor. In this article, we will show you how to track your shipment's progress and explain the meaning behind the different status updates you will see.
What We'll Cover
Tracking the Shipment's Progress
It doesn't hurt to track the shipment's progress in your Easyship Dashboard to ensure that it's delivered successfully. Simply navigate to the 'Manage Shipments>All' section by locating it on the left-hand column of your Dashboard.
Here you will be shown a list of all your shipments.
Tracking Shipments' History
For more specific tracking details click on the 3 dots next to the shipment and you will be shown the shipments status history on the right-hand side.
You may want to share this information with your customer instead of proactively monitoring it yourself. You can easily set up your account to automatically send tracking information directly to your customer.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set this feature up:
