About tracking numbers

The tracking number consist of 13-characters including a service indicator followed by 9 digits where the last one is a verification digit, this is used to check if its fake or not. The final 2 characters are country code indicators showing the origin of the parcel. With the traking number the parcel can be located using a global trace & trace system, in many cases both natinally and internationally all the way to to the receiving post office.
