Why should I choose to track using TrackingMore over SF Express?

SF Express has its own tracking API that allows customers to track the whereabouts of their packages at any time and from anywhere. Although SF Express can provide detailed tracking information, there may be some limitations that require the use of a powerful third-party tracking service such as TrackingMore.

TrackingMore is the preferred third-party tracking solution for leading brands around the world, including Shein, Bamako, and Kaufland. TrackingMore is connected to 1226 carriers worldwide. This wide network of carriers makes tracking seamless with TrackingMore, especially in the case of tracking packages shipped via a third-party Logistics Service Provider (LSP). 

Oftentimes, third-party LSPs may be required to switch courier services to deliver the packages to their destination. If the tracking APIs of the switched couriers are not connected with SF Express (when serving as a third-party LSP), the overall tracking details won’t be available in the SF Express tracking system. 

TrackingMore tracking API can be extremely useful in this situation. The vast network of carriers serves as multiple data sources. Moreover, it provides a smooth and convenient tracking experience for customers, including auto carrier detection, a friendly user interface, fast website performance, 24/7 support, and many other features.

SF Express Tracking API

The SF Express tracking API is designed to improve customer satisfaction by providing detailed shipment tracking information. Users can track up to 20 packages in a single search using the SF Express tracking API. However, the tracking API of TrackingMore is way more powerful and offers more benefits, including-

  • Automatic tracking if integrated with TrackingMore API

  • Compatibility with several eCommerce platforms such as eBay, AliExpress, etc.

  • Support multiple programming languages, including Python, Java, PHP, Ruby, and Node.js

  • 24/7 technical support

  • 99.90% API uptime

  • Military-grade level of security
