TrackMyShipments.com is no more

I’ve been using TrackMyShipments.com for some time to keep track of all the packages that arrive from Ebay, Amazon, etc. It was a handy tool to show you the status of shipments for USPS, UPS, FedEx and DHL in one place.

After creating an account with TrackMyShipments.com, it went something like this:

  1. Buy something
  2. Get a shipment notification
  3. Forward that notification to [email protected]

I found out the hard way today that TrackMyShipments.com has ceased operations. A notice on their site said they could not discover a business model that produced enough profit to allow them to expand they way they wanted to, or something like that. It’s a shame as I don’t recall any advertising or freemium options on their site.

I set out to find a replacement and via Lifehacker.com found TrackThePack.com*. (Note to Lifehacker: Your new site design is much harder to use than the old one. Not a good change.)

A few notes on TrackThePack.com:

  1. The interface at TrackThePack.com is much better than I was used to at TrackMyShipments.com
  2. The e-mail parser at TrackThePack.com is MUCH more aggressive than I am used to. It created 6 shipments out of one notification that I forwarded to it today.
  3. I wish that the TrackThePack.com e-mail parser would take the Subject Line and assign it as the Note/Description of the shipment. That would be handy.

If you find yourself tracking a bunch of packages, give TrackThePack.com a shot.

* Due to the wealth of information at Lifehacker.com, I can’t find the exact article that pointed me to TrackThePack.com, so I give you this link instead.
