About Trackage

← back to the main site

Trackage is a simple universal package tracker, as in Trackpackage. You copy in a tracking ID number from any company and it'll search for and format the tracking number for you so you can easily keep updated on the package progress. This is a very early stage of a work in progress. The site's not been publicised at all and has many limitations. So if you've got here you must either have bought something from me on eBay, been told by me, or told by someone I told, or be remarkably lucky!

Who's doing this?

David Rowbory, a web designer/programmer based mostly in Glasgow, Scotland.

I'm not affiliated with any of the delivery companies, I'm not advertising for them or working for them in any way. I hope I won't annoy them by providing this public service!

How do I use it?

The basics

Type in a tracking number and click . Separate multiple numbers with a comma.

Results will appear below if they can be found, and will automatically update fairly frequently, so you can leave it open in the background. Results get highlighted if I suspect that the delivery is imminent.

The icing on the cake

Saving codes: If you want to remember/save a tracking number click the button beside it. Later if you just come back to trackage.co.uk it will remember and search for your packages. You don't need an account and no personal information is saved on my server; it's stored securely in cookies on your web browser.

Send to an iPhone or someone else: Email the results page to your iPad or someone else by clicking the email link to open up a new email with the special link embedded. Alternatively copy the link to these results link at the bottom of the page.

How can I help?

I need to collect as many sample tracking codes from as many different courier/delivery companies as possible. Email me your tracking code - either just the code and delivery company name, or (possibly more helpfully) the full email sent with the code. I promise I won't pass on any of that information to other parties and I won't use it for any purpose other than helping build the trackage system.

You could also share ideas and perhaps programming talent to help move the project on. Get in touch. This isn't an official open-source project at the moment as it's very fluid, but I'd like it to be.

If you'd like to fund the development in a small or large way then I'd not say no, but you can get in touch if you want to. Currently development may be slow as I fit it around real paying work!
