The US Postal Services is facing growing competition from a growing number of competitors in the tracking field.
The USPS has launched a new service called Magic Tracks, a new platform which allows customers to create tracking lists and use the tracking information to book shipments to customers.
The service, which launched last month, allows customers tracking information such as the location of a package and a physical tracking number, along with an email address.
Customers can add a tracking list to a tracking account and the data will be sent to the USPS when the customer sends the package.
The data will also be included in USPS packages to give customers the option to opt-out of tracking information being included in their packages.
The company said it’s the first of its kind to be launched by the USPS.
The company is hoping that the new service will be a hit with customers, with one customer reporting a whopping 90% response rate when he signed up for the service.
“I was so happy with the response from customers,” the customer, who requested his name not be published, said.
“They responded within 15 minutes and it’s very helpful to have an automated way to provide tracking information for all packages in your order.”
The USPS will start rolling out Magic Tracks in the coming weeks and is offering the option of the service at a $5.99 per year fee.
“We’re excited about the opportunity to partner with USPS to bring the tracking capabilities of our software to our customers,” USPS Chief Marketing Officer, Chris McLeod said.
“We want to make sure we get the most value out of our tracking data and it will help us provide customers with an even more streamlined shipping experience.”
The service, currently available in Ireland, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK, will be available in the US for an initial period of four months and will eventually be rolled out to all of the countries.
The USPS said the service will provide customers a faster and easier way to track their packages, including tracking them via GPS, with the option for a tracking bar to be added to the cart.
The tracking bar can be set to indicate if a package is arriving to the customer’s address, or if it is tracking to a customer’s house, and can also be set on a per-item basis to give a customer the option if they want to opt out of receiving their tracking information.
“Customers are asking for the option and we’re excited to bring them this new way of tracking their packages,” USPS Director of Business Development, Michael R. Kelly said.
