    China Post Tracking in the USA

    China Post delivers in the United States through a partnership with the country's local postal service, USPS (United States Postal Service). China Post ships the packages from China to the USA after completing all the necessary formalities, such as export security screening, customs clearance, etc., and sends the shipment via air freight or ocean freight.  

    When the shipment arrives in the United States, it is once again examined for import customs clearance. After completing the formalities at the port or airport, the shipments are handed over to the USPS for local delivery. As the shipments are registered at the USPS, customers can track their China Post packages on the USPS website. 

    Why bother going from one website to another to track your package when TrackingMore can offer a one-stop tracking service? 

    How to track China Post Packages

    You need your shipment tracking number to track China Post packages. The tracking number can be used in the China Post tracking tool to see the whereabouts of the shipment. You can also use the tracking number on a third-party tracking website such as TrackingMore to get accurate tracking information.

    The following is a detailed guide on how to track China Post shipments.

    • Via the China Post's official website

    China Post tracking page

    Note: You can also go to TrackingMore's ePacket tracking page or China EMS tracking page to track the packages.

    Why should I choose to track using TrackingMore over China Post?

    China Post provides a reliable tracking tool that allows customers to track their package from the time it is dispatched from the sender to the time it is delivered to the receiver. However, it has some limitations, for which a powerful third-party tracking service like TrackingMore can be useful.

    TrackingMore is one of the leading third-party tracking services, with a global network of over 1100 carriers. This vast integration of tracking APIs is helpful for tracking shipments when China Post acts as a third-party Logistics Service Provider (LSP). Usually, third-party LSPs may need to switch courier services. In such cases, the China Post tracking system may not show the overall tracking details.

    On this note, TrackingMore has access to multiple data sources that provide complete shipment visibility. Its other features that give customers a smooth and convenient tracking experience include auto carrier detection, a friendly user interface, fast website performance, 24/7 support, and many more.

    China Post Tracking Number

    China Post assigns a unique combination of tracking numbers to every package or shipment booked at China Post for delivery. This tracking number acts as the shipment's identifier, allowing the sender, receiver, and courier service to track the shipment in real time. 

    The tracking number is provided on the shipping label, confirmation email, or text message from the sender. The China Post tracking number consists of 13 alphanumeric characters. Depending on the service, the tracking number begins with a pair of letters (the first letter being R, U, L, or E), followed by 9 numeric digits, and ends with a pair of letters ‘CN’. 

    Here are a few examples of China Post tracking numbers.

    - Registered Small Packet: RS 793 057 830 CN

    - Untracked Packet: UN2508Zc53670CN

    - China Post International Large Package: CP 846 105 639 CN
