Track trace is a method of tracking parcels sent by a number of post offices and courier companies, worldwide. We at Aerospeed Couriers, have our own tracking service, so it is not necessary to use track trace. Although track trace is a good idea, it is far better to use a the company’s own system directly. Most large courier companies have a track trace of some means or other. So this is not a unique idea, but more an idea that consolidates a general method used by numerous other companies. Rather use the parcel tracking method of the company itself. What is tracking? It is a method of following your parcel through the system. Courier companies use a wheel and spoke method of carrying parcels. Thus there are various stages in the process. The parcel is collected and taken to the company’s central where the means of transport is chosen. The mode of transport is chosen by the customer and is dependent on the speed of delivery chosen by the customer. Large bulky parcels which do not require speedy delivery usually go by road freight. Express deliveries go by air. Whatever the mode of transport chosen, the next stage involves delivery to the company’s central office. Here parcels are sorted and into destination and mode of transport. They are then taken either to the airport or the road freight depot. In either case they are then immediately dispatched by air or road. At the various destinations, the courier company collects the parcels and takes it to their branch offices from where they are dispatched to their final destinations. The track trace, enables the customer to see exactly where their parcel is at any particular moment, whether it in transit or at any stage in its carriage. However, when using a reliable company it is almost unnecessary to use track trace.
