Shipping API

Shippo Standalone Tracking API

Tue 17 Nov 2015
By Shan Lian

You can now use the Shippo's standalone tracking API to track parcels that weren't necessarily sent from within Shippo! While it's in public beta, use it for free. 

Simply send a GET request with your tracking_number and carrier token to our Tracking endpoints at:<CARRIER>/<TRACKING_NUMBER>/

Test out our sample shipment on to see the types of responses you'd get. For more details on the API, all response types, and information about webhooks, check out our docs.


We currently accept tracking numbers from, USPS, FedEx, UPS, DHL Express, Lasership and other carriers that we support. For latest list of support carriers, please check out our carrier compatibility page and our API reference for the carrier tokens.


Shippo is a multi-carrier API and web app that helps retailers, marketplaces and platforms connect to a global network of carriers. Businesses use Shippo to get real-time rates, print labels, automate international paperwork, track packages and facilitate returns. Shippo provides the tools to help businesses succeed through shipping.
