Google has a neat way to track your shipments.

Thanks to Google Online Sellers have a new and easy tool to use to track packages they have sent and more importantly, an easy way to assure their customers.

Google Search By Number feature allows you to use Google to access package tracking information, US patents, and a variety of online databases.

Parcel tracking IDs, patents and other specialized numbers can be entered into Google's search box for quick access to information about them. For example, typing a FedEx tracking number will return the latest information
on your package. Other special search by number types include :

  • UPS tracking numbers example search: "1Z9999W99999999999"

  • FedEx tracking numbers example search: "999999999999"

  • USPS tracking numbers example search:
    "9999 9999 9999 9999 9999 99"

  • Vehicle ID (VIN) numbers example search:

  • UPC codes example search: "073333531084"

  • Telephone area codes example search: "650"

  • Patent numbers example search: "patent 5123123"
    Remember to put the word "patent" before your patent number.

  • FAA airplane registration numbers example search: "n199ua"
    An airplane's FAA registration number is typically printed on its tail.

  • FCC equipment IDs example search:
    "fcc B4Z-34009-PIR"
    Remember to put the word "fcc" before the equipment ID.

I plan on adding this information to each of my out going confirmation emails.
