In General

I must say I’m impressed with UPS, yeah the courier company. I had always known that UPS and FedEx had a great tracking system on the web. This means that you can log on to the website, give your tracking code and immediately know where your parcel is. I had always wondered how these guys do it and yesterday I got the answer. An UPS guy come over to my office to deliver a package to me which had been shipped from the US. He had an electronic pad, the size of a video cassette. It had a light sensor and the guy showed this light on the bar code stuck to the parcel. Voila ! That’s it. Data updated. He says this electronic pad will transmit this information to the UPS servers which in turn will update the status on the site. Maan, technology at its absolute best.
