Deutsche Post and DHL shipment tracking

Keep up to date with the status of your letters and parcels

The shipment status of your letters and parcels

Shipment tracking enables you to track your letters (standard letters with matrixcode stamp, registered national/international items, cash on delivery, Prio) and view information on the delivery of your shipment.

To track an item, simply enter your shipment number above and you will immediately be shown its current shipment tracking status. Proof of delivery of registered items is also available here to download.

Shipment tracking also enables you to follow the status of particular parcels. The full parcel shipment tracking service, including a user’s account where you can check all your shipments, is available in shipment tracking parcels.
