Anl logistics tracking
Global shipment tracking
Note: Foreign packages of private parcel services (eg Hermes, UPS) do not receive a UPU code. In addition, DHL is establishing its own delivery networks in more and more countries, such as in Austria. When shipping DHL parcels between Germany and Austria, the parcel number remains unchanged because there is no change of transporter at the national border.
A tracking or shipment number is a uniquely assigned parcel number that can be used to track a shipment. It is a combination of numbers and letters that exactly identifies your package for tracking purposes. The tracking number can be 10 to 39 digits long and should be provided to you by the sender.
When will my package arrive
The FiFo principle (First in First out - the storage unit that is put away first is taken out of storage first) is a stock removal strategy that usually results from product restrictions (e.g. best-before date) or from system technology (e.g. flow storage).
Kanban refers to a decentralized planning and control procedure which is also used as a strategy in logistics and which functions on the basis of self-controlling (product and process-related) control loops.
The loading equipment either has a unique identification (barcode), or it is marked separately at goods receipt. Article-only loading aids contain only one article (article-only storage), order-only loading aids contain one or more articles of an order (order-only storage).
A storage bin assignment is initiated as soon as a storage unit is identified and the assignment to the storage bin is determined by the putaway strategy. Storage bin assignment is a function of the I-point.
Basically, parcel tracking is quite simple: parcel services like DHL, Hermes, GLS or DPD scan the barcode of the parcel at different nodes the shipment passes. The location and time are stored and, after a short period of time, deposited in the online parcel tracking system.
Due to automated processes, this service does not represent a great deal of additional work and is therefore now already standard. The parcels pass through sorting systems at the handling points, which automatically scan the barcode and forward it.
