At the moment, there are several popular transport companies (TC) and delivery services that accept orders from individuals and deliver orders made in online hypermarkets.
Unlike the state postal service, TCs operate wider and have an extensive network of offices in almost every locality. Additionally, they often have couriers available to deliver packages and orders to your door.

How to Track Your Parcel?
For the convenience of the sender and recipient, transport companies, including one of the most popular companies - Yanwen tracking, make it possible to track parcels.
As a rule, Yanwen tracking is carried out using specialized services. All you need to find out where the parcel is currently located is to enter the shipment number or track number (given upon dispatch) into the search bar on the thematic resource. In just a second you will know how long it will take to receive your order and whether there are any problems with the parcel.
Similar tracking services are available not only for desktops but also for mobile devices on iOS or Android.
By the way, on thematic services that track parcels, you can find out details of shipments not only from Yanwen but also from other popular transport companies.
Finding out the tracking number of your parcel is very easy. After you have paid for your purchase and the seller has sent it, the number should appear in your profile on the website in the purchases section (opposite the specific purchase). Please note that you can only track your parcel using a track number, which consists of an alphanumeric combination consisting of four letters and nine numbers (for example, FT123456789CN). No order numbers, reserve numbers, or parcel serial numbers on eBay are suitable for tracking. The tracking number becomes active 3–5 days after sending.
Why Track Your Parcel?
Parcel tracking is not an obligation, but a voluntary option. When the package arrives at its destination, the recipient will receive a notification or SMS in any case. However, it is still recommended to track your parcels. Why?
Firstly, parcels can get lost. The likelihood of losing a package is small, but with the help of tracking services, you can understand at what stage the package was lost, so that you can then contact support or the sender.
Secondly, you can plan when to receive your parcel. With the help of specialized services, you can find out when the package will arrive at the point of delivery or at your address, without waiting for a notification. If the parcel is delayed somewhere, you will also be informed.
Thirdly, the tracking number is another guarantee that the sender really sent your parcel or order. If there are any problems with it, you can use the data from the transport company to prepare a formal claim.
That is, it is not necessary to monitor parcels, but it is advisable for your own comfort and time planning.
