How does our shipment tracking work?

With our shipment tracking, both our customers and the recipients of your shipments can always stay up-to-date regarding their shipments.

Our shipment tracking works very similarly to the tracking systems you might know from parcel services like DHL.

How do I access shipment tracking?

To track your shipments, we send you a direct link to the shipment tracking with the order confirmation. If needed, you can also forward the link directly to the recipient of the shipment.

Alternatively, you can access the shipment tracking at any time using the shipment number and the recipient's postal code.

Login Sendungsverfolgung

Where you can find your tracking number:

  • Order confirmation
  • Invoice
  • Shipping label
  • Cargoboard account

Note: If you are the consignee of a shipment and have not yet received a tracking number, please contact your seller to obtain the tracking number.

How is our shipment tracking structured?

Once you access our shipment tracking, you will find our map on the left where you can always track the current position of your shipment. If the shipment is in the process of delivery or pickup, you can follow the route of the truck live on the map. Additionally, the stops remaining before your pickup or delivery are displayed.

On the right side, you will see an overview of all the information related to your shipment. At the top, you will find your tracking number and the respective details about the sender and recipient of the shipment. At this point, you also have the option to share your tracking as a link. You can, for example, forward this link to the recipient of your shipment.
