Technology

Radio frequency identification (RFID) and barcodes are the most common technology methods used to track and trace your parcel.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

RFID has become synonymous with track-and-trace solutions and plays a critical role in supply chain management across the globe.  RFID is a code-carrying technology that can be used in place of a barcode.  When first introduced, it was inhibited due to cost limitations but usage has become a lot more widespread during recent times.

Barcodes

Barcoding is a common and cost-effective way to track and trace your parcel.  The barcode contains variable data or a numeric or alphanumeric code format that can be applied to the packaging or parcel label.  A matrix barcode can also be used.

A track and trace option is usually provided on your courier company’s website and by entering the code into the relevant search box, information is provided in real time.

Depending on the parcel destination and the type of service you are using additional tracking scans may be available for your parcel, which include handovers to and from customs as well release from overseas processing through to delivery.
