Browser-based Item Tracking

  • Posti Dashboard is a real-time browser-based Item Tracking service. It can be used to track not only individual parcels but also batches of parcels.
  • You can track your deliveries in real time with the criteria that suit you and, thus, offer faster and more efficient customer service for the shipment inquiries of your customers.
  • Access the service via Posti Service Portal

Estimated date of arrival for parcels

  • The estimated arrival date of parcels is displayed in Posti’s mobile application. The same information can be displayed in the shopping cart of your online store or in your mobile application by integrating the parcel’s estimated date of arrival with your company’s system.
  • For more information on integration, see the programmer’s manual.
  • The interface descriptions can be found here.

Warehousing integrations with Posti’s systems

You can use and monitor Posti’s warehousing services in a browser application or by completing a system integration.

Browser application

The browser application is designed for small order quantities and can be ordered in the Posti Service Portal.

System integration

When your order quantities are large, we recommend system integration. The integration is usually made from the customer’s ERP system.

System integration includes normal data flows related to warehouse use:

  • Reference data
  • Purchase order and acknowledgement
  • Sales order and acknowledgement
  • Return order and acknowledgement
  • Changes in inventory

The interface descriptions for warehousing services can be found here.

The Posti GLUE service enables you to merge the order-supply chains of suppliers, shops and online stores. This makes it possible to directly sell the products in the supplier’s or shop’s balance in the online store. Learn more about the service.

For small delivery quantities, select the browser-based Company Pickup Point application instead of system integration. The application supports tablet use and bar code reader, and a multi-channel shop can use it for shop deliveries. The shop can be added as an e-commerce pickup point using the browser application.
