IMb Tracing™

What is IMb Tracing?
IMb Tracing provides you with near real-time tracking information about your First-Class Mail®, Periodicals, and Standard Mail letters and flats.

There are two types of IMb Tracing that let you know where your mail is, and when it will be delivered. Both provide you advance notice of when your mailpieces will arrive.

  1. Destination IMb Tracing service (for outgoing mail) gives you advance information about when your mailpieces will reach their destinations.

  2. Origin IMb Tracing service (for incoming mail) lets you anticipate when customers' checks, replies, or orders are on the way back to you.
