    Cainiao Tracking

    The Cainiao tracking system allows tracking and tracing of the progress of shipments and packages delivered through the Cainiao network. The tracking feature offers peace of mind to customers awaiting their packages across borders. 

    A unique combination of tracking numbers is assigned to every shipment registered at Cainiao. The tracking number can be used to know the whereabouts of the shipment from dispatch to delivery, along with the transit locations, date, and time. This ensures the transparency of the service and gives customers the chance to plan their day and maximize convenience.

    Cainiao Super Economy Global

    Cainiao Super Economy Global is a cost-effective and reliable international shipping service for individuals and e-commerce merchants with shipment needs weighing less than 2 kg. The shipping duration required is usually between 30 and 50 days. Interestingly, Shipping is free in most cases, however small shipping fee may be required in certain cases.

    Although the service includes a tracking feature to ensure its reliability and transparency, it has some limitations outside the borders of China. The final delivery carried out within the destination countries is the responsibility of the local carriers. 

    As the tracking systems of those local couriers may not be integrated with Cainiao’s tracking system, the Cainiao tracking tool may fail to provide detailed shipment status. However, a third-party shipment tracking platform, such as TrackingMore, can offer help in such situations. TrackingMore is integrated with over 1100 carriers, giving customers access to more data sources and providing precise and detailed additional information.

    How Can I Track My Cainiao’s Package?

    The tracking number assigned to the packages is the key tracking component. Cainiao has its own official tracking site to help customers monitor their packages. You can also track your package through third-party tracking services such as TrackingMore. 

    The following is a detailed guide on how to track a Cainiao package.

    • Via the Official website

    To track your Cainiao package using the Cainiao official website, follow the steps provided below. 

    Go to the Cainiao Global Express Tracking website. Enter your tracking number in the tracking tool and click the ‘Track’ button. Then a page with your package shipment details will appear on your screen.

    • Via Cainiao Mobile APP

    The Cainiao App is another alternative package tracking platform. The app has an integrated tracking tool that customers can use to track their packages. Enter the tracking number into the tool, and the tracking page will appear on the screen.

    TrackingMore is a reliable and powerful third-party shipment tracking platform. It is connected to more than 1100 logistics service providers worldwide. The integration of such a wide network of tracking APIs allows customers a seamless tracking experience. 

    Here's a step-by-step guide to tracking Cainaiao packages with TrackingMore.

    TrackingMore Cainiao global tracking page

    Step 1: Go to the TrackingMore official page and click the option ‘Carrier’ from the menu. 

    Step 2: On the ‘Carriers’ page, there is a carrier search bar. Type Cainiao and click on the carrier.

    Step 3: Enter your tracking number in the tracking box. You can enter up to 50 tracking numbers. Make sure to separate each tracking number with a line.

    Now, the tracking dashboard will appear on your screen with your package's shipping details.

    Cainiao Tracking Number

    Packages registered at Cainiao for shipment are assigned a unique identifier. This identifying number serves as the tracking number that allows both the sender and receiver to track the shipment’s progress. The tracking number can be found on the shipping label, confirmation email, or order details page.

    The Cainiao tracking number consists of 10 to 20 alphanumeric characters, beginning with a pair of letters ‘LP’, followed by a unique combination of random numbers. The variation in length depends on the logistics provider. For example, LP894106589032648021. 

    In the case of the Cainiao Super Economy service, the tracking number can end with a pair of letters. For example, LP9460364935673925CN.

    Why should I choose to track using TrackingMore over Cainiao?

    Ciaonao Express and TrackingMore both offer real-time package tracking facilities. However, TrackingMore has some advanced features that make it far more powerful and versatile than Cainiao.

    TrackingMore has a global network of over 1100 carriers. The integration with a wide range of tracking APIs makes tracking seamless for customers who use third-party Logistics Service Providers (LSP) like Cainiao. Since third-party LSPs usually switch between different courier services during the shipment's journey, the provided tracking information often lacks specifics. 

    The carriers TrackingMore integrated with are

    Express: UPS trackingDHL trackingFedEx trackingTNT tracking

    Post: USPS trackingChina Post TrackingHong Kong Post Tracking, etc.

    On the other hand, when tracking with TrackingMore, you will have complete shipment visibility. One of the best features of TrackingMore is that it has a carrier auto-detect function. That is, the integrated tracking APIs with the TrackingMore system can automatically identify the carriers through the tracking number. Moreover, the friendly user interface and fast website performance give customers a smooth tracking experience.

    Cainiao Tracking API

    The Cainiao tracking API can track up to 100 Cainiao and AliExpress packages in a single search. However, customers may have difficulty finding the tracking page as this is a separate website. In addition, due to traffic, the website's performance can be slow at times.

    Therefore, for seamless and convenient tracking, it's better to use a powerful third-party tracking API such as TrackingMore.

    • TrackingMore offers auto tracking and delivery notifications to customers. After logging in, customers can configure their notification settings. The TrackingMore system can automatically track Cainiao packages and notify customers of their status, such as in transit, ready for pickup, out for delivery, and so on.
    • TrackingMore is compatible with several eCommerce platforms, such as eBay, AliExpress, etc. The integration of eBay, AliExpress, or Magento accounts with TrackingMore allows TrackingMore to access the order information and bring all the tracking data into a single dashboard.
    • TrackingMore supports multi-languages and is convenient for users from 16 different countries, including English-speaking countries, France, Spain, Germany, and others.

    FAQs on Cainiao Tracking

    • Is Cainiao Super Economy Global reliable?

    Yes, Cainiao Super Economy Global is a reliable and cost-effective shipping service. Although the shipping duration is longer than that of other services, it successfully delivers packages to their destinations. 

    When international packages arrive at their destination country, they are handed over to local couriers for final delivery. For this reason, tracking information after leaving the origin country may be unavailable in the Cainiao tracking system. 

    As the final delivery is the responsibility of the local carriers, not Cainiao, the tracking facility's limitations do not necessarily indicate that the service is unreliable.

    • How does Cainiao work?

    The working procedure of Cainiao is given below. 

    Step 1: The sender registers the package at Cainiao. 

    Step 2: The package is sent to the warehouse for processing the paperwork, such as assigning a tracking number, scanning, and so on.

    Step 3: The package is then sent to the nearest Cainiao facility or hub.

    Step 4: The package then travels through several transits required for the shipping process.

    Step 5: The package is sent to the airport or shipping port for export customs clearance and sent off to the destination country.

    Step 6: The destination country receives the package and conducts an import customs examination. 

    Step 7: After getting clearance from customs, the package is handed over to the local courier service for final delivery.
