Royal Mail Tracking Code
Using specially developed despatch management software, each parcel is given a barcode that can be given to customers, allowing them to see which stage of the delivery process their parcel has reached. The parcel is recorded as having arrived at four major points in the delivery process, starting with the point of postage and ending with the final destination.
The Royalmail tracking service is available to both business customers and individuals. Some companies pass the tracking code onto their customers, enabling buyers to check the progress of their purchase and estimate its time of arrival. Royal Mail recently increased the maximum weight of parcels sent via the tracking service from 5kg to 15kg. Businesses that send large numbers of parcels can benefit from extra services such as an increased weight of up to 20kgs on parcels.
Royal Mail Recorded Delivery
For businesses, Royalmail tracking offers a number of options. The trademarked Safeplace service allows customers to give special delivery instructions when buying online or via mail order, so Royal Mail delivery representatives will leave the parcel in a specific place such as a porch or outbuilding. With the tracking service from Royal Mail, customers can also request to pick up their mail or parcel from their local post office. This Local Collect Business delivery option gives customers peace of mind if they are not at home to receive their delivery.
Royal Mail can provide businesses with a special thermal printer, so barcodes can be printed from the company's offices, allowing businesses to manage their own postage using the Royalmail tracking service.
