It’s after the holidays, and some people are probably still sending gifts out to their relatives and friends. If it’s a high-ticket gift, I’m sure that they would like to know when the package is getting to the person and would like to track it.

Especially if someone is sending a lot of gifts, it is difficult to keep track of them. You have to keep all of those tracking numbers in a file so that you can search them every so often. Packagetrackr serves to alleviate people of this issue. It keeps track of all of your packages in your account, and it shows them in a clean, easy-to-use interface.

Say I’m sending an expensive computer to my friend that I ordered via the Internet, and I want to make sure it gets to him without any issues. I look at the confirmation e-mail, copy the tracking number, and paste it into the tracking number box on Packagetrackr.

Then, Packagetrackr auto-detects the carrier and looks up the tracking information from the carrier’s database (say UPS). Once it has done that, it shows me a beautifully-formatted page with both a map of the package’s trip so far and a list of what has occurred (e.g. Departure scan from Who-Knows-Where, AL at 3:31 PM on December 4th, 2015).

However, if I have a bunch of packages, why would I want to have to click on each one and see the map of its progress? That’s where the homepage comes into play; if I go to, it shows me a list of all of my packages that I have entered into my account, and for each one, it shows a nifty bubble saying how many days are left in their trips (e.g. 5 days).

This is especially helpful if you have an entire list of packages that you are sending out to people (maybe if you use eBay or are an Amazon seller), and you don’t want to get into trouble for lost packages.

So, try it out! Let me know what you think in the comments form below.
