USPS Tracking

USPS (The United States Postal Service) is an independent agency that is responsible for providing mail service in the US. It is one of the few agencies authorised by the constitution of the United States.

An effective cost management plan ensures that projects are completed within a set budget and in timely manner. As revenues dropped sharply due to recession, the volume of mail declined. This prompted the postal service to look for other sources of income and enhance its services by extending mail deliveries to weekends and public holidays.


The price of mail is determined by its class and how far it needs to travel to reach its destination. The farther the destination, the more you pay for postage. The rate is measured by zones. For instance, zone 1 is local to you, and zone 10 is very far away from you. USPS offers different priority mailing options for a flat rate, regardless of how much the parcel weighs or its destination. Flat-rate priority mail is by far the most cost-effective option.

Urgent mailing has two flat-rate boxes and three types of envelopes. Additionally, you can save even more money by sending your priority large-sized parcel to APO/FPO addresses. Any other non-flat rated mail is based on its weight and destination. Priority packages that weight less than 20 pounds and more than 84 inches in size are charged by their weight. This is referred to as a ‘balloon price’, which applies to local delivery pieces for zones 1 to 4. If your priority parcel exceeds one cubic foot, and it is travelling to zones 5 to 8, it will be subject to ‘dimensional weight pricing’.

Benefits of using USPS International

Using USPS is perfect for non-priority goods that weigh less than 4 pounds. The items that are dispatched from the US via airmail will enter into standard class mail once they reach UK. Transit times can take up to two weeks and sometimes there are discounted postage rates on offer.

As USPS has an expansive number of post offices in the US, it offers more delivery options to customers. The company also offers PO boxes, bulk mailing options, flat-rate urgent mailing, international delivery, first-class parcel delivery, and many other such services at economical rates.

Safety is the main priority in international shipping

All reputable carriers emphasise on safety as their top priority when shipping international parcels. The policy of USPS is that a package weighing more than 13 ounces should not be placed into a collection box, or at an unattended USPS site. If the parcel is left in a mailbox, it won’t be picked up by the courier; similarly, if it is dropped into a collection box, the company will return it to the shipper.

Before you send your international mail via USPS, you should verify whether the drop-off site will be acceptable or not. You are required to fill out a customs declaration form at your local post office even if the parcel already has stamps on it.

As this courier company also delivers on Saturdays, you can use this service without paying extra. Priority letters reach 90 per cent of the US within two days, but for UK deliveries, it will take longer. So if you send an important document on a Thursday, it will not be delivered until Saturday.

The post office in the US has more fleet of delivery vehicles than any other shipment company. Not many other companies have thus far managed to deliver parcels and letters to every single address on a daily basis without losing or damaging the package. Although the competition is rife, the priority mail service of USPS is equally better than its rivals. The chances of your packages getting stolen is much less thanks to federal inspectors who monitor every sorting office in order to ensure the safety of your mail.

International Shipping Rules and Restrictions

Delivery - Copyrights USPS

Delivery – Copyrights USPS

Some people do not realise that there are rules and regulations on what is and isn’t acceptable to be mailed through USPS or any other courier. You are not allowed to send alcoholic beverages or perfume that contains alcohol to another country, and when it is shipped domestically, it won’t be sent via airmail. Remember to remove the alcohol labeling from the package before posting it.

The other shipping restriction includes prescription medications, which must be registered with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Similar rules apply to some over-the-counter drugs so you should always check with the company before mailing in order to reduce delivery delays.

Unloaded shotguns or air rifles may be permitted for posting, but they are subject to shipping regulations. You must be a licensed manufacturer or dealer to be allowed to send or receive the weapon. Perishable items are still subject to many restrictions even though they are less dangerous. You are advised to contact your courier service to see whether you will be permitted or prohibited to send your international package.

USPS Tracking procedure

Mobile – Copyrights USPS

The tracking procedure at USPS is surprisingly simple. If you have a parcel that you are sending or receiving, you can easily track it online. All packages have unique tracking numbers for customers to check their status. When you are sending a package to another city or country, you will be given a personalised number that identifies your parcel. This system makes it very easy for customers to track their mail, calculate its arrival time, and keep an eye on where it is located at all times.

To get the most competitive prices for the shipment of your parcel, you should consider USPS to ship your goods to any country in the world. The Internet has allowed new avenues to be opened up in every area, and it is not just for tracking your item as there are many ways you can keep track of your parcel while it is in transit. By using the online services, you can calculate postage price, look up a zip code, and contact USPS directly.

To track your package via email, you can learn the progress it is making as it moves from one location to another. There are two choices available when opting for the email tracking; the email will provide information about the item’s activity to date and all its future activities. An email response is sent to you as your parcel is moved from its original location, and once it has gone through all the transitions and the recipient receives it, you will get a final email.

Once you have received an email or a letter, it will include proof of delivery track that your parcel has been delivered successfully. The message will also contain the recipient’s signature as proof of delivery. This method gives customers peace of mind knowing that their goods will get to their destination safely.

Should the tracking service not work, our support team and the support team of the shipping companies would gladly help you.

    Hi, I have been checking the tracking on a parcel I am waiting to receive from an eBay purchase, and all was looking good until yesterday when it said the parcel had been delivered? The tracking number is: LZ346138030US and according to tracking it was delivered 2 days and 7 hours ago, this is my second parcel from UPS that has been put on the tracking as delivered when it wasn’t, the first arrived 5 days later and the delivery driver told me to just ignore the tracking information, I’m beginning to thing maybe he was right! Please could you find where my parcel is, and also show me where I have presumably signed for it? Thank you for your help… I just want my parcel…..

    Tracking says it’s delivered. But it has not. Where is it please. LZ474377563US

  17. Sean Caruana Webster

    Hi, I sent you a message two days ago regarding a package. Its tracking number is 9374889684090159283845. In the tracking details it instructs that ‘Your package was delivered. It was handed directly to a resident.’ I URGENTLY require the name and copy of signature from this ‘resident’, as my package is stuck in that address and it is required to be forwarded to my personal address. Your kind and quick intervention is direly required as it has nearly been a month stuck in the freight-forward address, and without the name and signature my postal company cannot intervene in having it sent to my address.
    many thanks.

  18. Nicole

    Hi my tracking number is LZ192413595US and my parcel says delivered 5 days ago and still nothing not even a customs charge note. Usps seems to be very well known for not delivering parcels with all these comments..
