The Ecommerce Merchant’s Guide to Package Tracking for Modern Consumers

Mar 18, 2021

Package tracking goes hand in hand with ecommerce. Since FedEx rolled out its first iteration of the technology—a hotline people could call with tracking number in hand—there have been a few updates following the debut of the internet and online shopping.

For example, when’s the last time you picked up a phone to ask someone where your package is? If you’re a millennial, we’re guessing it’s safe to say that you’ve never done that. For decades, shoppers have been able to hop online to check the status of their latest ecommerce buy, but that’s pretty much where evolution ended.

Ecommerce has advanced faster than anticipated. Consumer needs, wants, and behaviors are wildly different than they were in the ‘90s when Amazon was hardly a whisper. Yet package tracking has stayed pretty much the same, making it a veritable dinosaur in the age of modern digital consumerism. 

How can you keep up with today’s consumers? Is your store offering what the people want? How does the package tracking experience contribute to customer retention, long-term loyalty, and your store’s bottom line? How can you ever find the answers?!
