COSCO offers a variety of online track and trace tools for COSCO shipping tracking, namely, the COSCO Cargo Tracking, COSCO Shipment Details tracking, and COSCO Booking Tracking tools.
The official COSCO Cargo Tracking service can be accessed via the drop-down menu of "Our Service." To track COSCO cargo, you need a bill of lading number, booking number, container number, or reference number.
When it comes to COSCO container tracking, only 6 container numbers can be entered each time.
If you use a reference number, please note that these 5 types of reference numbers are supported by the system:
You may also go to the COSCO E-Business Portal for COSCO cargo tracking, which presents other tracking options, including email, mobile app, and WeChat.
You may choose the most convenient option to track cargo handled by COSCO. If you wish to know the shipment details, log in to the E-Business Portal.
COSCO has developed a comprehensive solution for you to check sailing schedules and specific cutoff times. You can also receive timely arrival notice before the container arrives at the destination port.
You may choose COSCO booking tracking by city pairs, by service route, or by vessel.
In particular, for COSCO vessel tracking, you can either enter the vessel name here or go to the "Vessel Particulars" option under "Schedule," where you can search by service. Just choose the service you want from "Trade" and the particular service line you're interested in, and click "Search" for more details.
In case of transshipment, you'd better use the bill of lading number for tracking. Normally, 3 days before the container arrives at an intermediate destination, COSCO will provide the information on the next container. As for foreign trade, if trans-shipment is needed, generally, it will be arranged within 7 ~ 14 days.
ParcelPanel is a professional ecommerce post-purchase solution provider that offers order tracking services by seamlessly integrating with an extensive network of carriers, including COSCO eGlobal. You may access the COSCO tracking service via the official website or our order tracking app.
Visit the "Carriers" page on ParcelPanel's official website, enter "COSCO" in the search bar, and choose the "COSCO eGlobal Tracking" service. You may enter up to 30 bill of lading numbers for COSCO shipping tracking.
After entering a COSCO tracking number, click "Track" to initiate the tracking process.
The advantage of using ParcelPanel over the official COSCO tracking tool is that you can easily export the tracking information for all shipments and get the translation in another language.
If you do a wholesale business worldwide and use COSCO to ship bulk cargo, the shipping time can be excruciating. Instead of getting many WISMO inquiries from impatient customers, you'd better provide 24/7 self-serve order tracking to save time on communication. For Shopify and WooCommerce merchants, the ParcelPanel Order Tracking app is an excellent solution for increasing customer engagement and building trust.
In this way, your customers will return to your online store more often and get informed of the shipment updates without your help. You may also choose to enable a variety of email notifications triggered by the change of shipment status. Furthermore, with analytics, you can easily identify the most lucrative market that you need to prioritize.
