Hello,

I know often packages have bar codes that are scanned at different points along the journey, but I don't know how does the parcel tracking work. Can anyone any innovative ideas in this topics?

Thanks

There are 2 main methods that are used to track the packages. one by bar codes and other by RFID tags. They help in the security of the package as they can trace the checkpoints from where the package has passed and if lost they can pin point the source at which the package got lost. This also help in the forming the transportation strategies of the package based on real time information.

Parcel is fitted with a bar code that has all the parcels details both in sender and delivery. This item carries this data throughout its journey and will enable anybody relevant to establish where the parcel is at any moment in time. The parcel is repeatedly scanned at each of its sorting and transfer offices and this information is immediately fed into the computer database so that the journey is followed throughout.
