Why consider International Tracked for your shipments?
You require tracking for your international shipments
All Chit Chats International Tracked shipments include full tracking with delivery confirmation for your recipients. Tracking updates can be found directly in your Chit Chats account or by searching the carrier tracking number on APC's tracking page.
Tracking events are provided by the partner carrier; however, there is typically a gap between the last tracking update in the U.S. and when the package is inducted in the destination country. This is because the package may be subject to international customs inspections and will need to be processed by the local postal authority in the destination country.
