    Why Should I Choose to Track Using TrackingMore Over Korea Post?

    Tracking your Korea Post packages via TrackingMore is a better alternative than using the native track and trace tools provided by the logistics service provider because of its numerous advanced features. The first advantage of using TrackingMore is that it allows you to track more than just the Korea Post packages. TrackingMore supports 1100+ global couriers, enabling you to seamlessly track packages handled by different couriers.

    With TrackingMore, you can maintain 100% shipment visibility for cross-border Korea Post shipments, which may change tracking numbers when handed over to final-mile delivery partners in different countries. TrackingMore possesses the carrier auto-detection feature that will automatically detect what carrier the tracking number belongs to. 

    TrackingMore exceeds expectations when tracking Korea Post packages during holidays and high-traffic periods. Whereas the Korea Post website may be slow in such moments, leading to delays and inconveniences when tracking a package, TrackingMore maintains a 99.9% uptime that ensures you can get real-time tracking information on any package no matter the time of the year.

    Korea Post Tracking Number (우체국택배 송장번호)

    Every Korea Post package is issued with a unique tracking code once posted. The Korea Post tracking number is also referred to as a registration number on the courier's website. This special code can pinpoint the whereabouts of a specific package at any time and retrieve a report detailing all the shipment events concerning it.

    Korea Post Tracking Number Format and Examples

    Knowing how your Korea Post tracking number looks is essential for determining if you have the correct tracking number for your package. Korea Post tracking numbers feature 13 characters, but the specifics of each will vary depending on the type of package. Domestic packages have a digits-only tracking number, while EMS packages have a 13-character tracking number with a two-letter prefix starting with the letter ‘E’ followed by nine numerals and two more letters at the end. 

    Some examples of real Korea Post tracking numbers are as follows.

    - 6502201137720 (Domestic package)

    - EG012724179TW (EMS package)

    To get a Korea Post tracking code, check the order confirmation email or invoice for goods bought online. Senders can find the tracking code on the postage receipt.
