Tracking Parcelforce with EasyPost

EasyPost is a multi-carrier shipping solution. The EasyPost API is one integration point for 100+ carriers, including Parcelforce. All Parcelforce functionality is accessible using the EasyPost API, including tracking as a stand alone product. EasyPost standardizes the inconsistencies across carrier tracking and shipping APIs with its RESTful interface.

For access to all of the Parcelforce API functionality through EasyPost, just sign up or get in touch with one of our shipping experts.

Parcelforce is a British carrier that was originally part of Royal Mail. It became a separate unit in 1986 and then in 1990 it was rebranded from Royal Mail Parcels to Parcelforce.

Parcelforce has 4,500 employees and is based in Milton Keynes, England.

Parcelforce offers an XML API for Tracking, but there is no public access to it. You'll need to contact your Account Representative to gain access.

You can track a single Parcelforce package on the Parcelforce Tracking Site.

Like most Tracking APIs, you need to continually poll it to obtain package statuses. Unfortunately, there are no webhooks or even client libraries for the Parcelforce Tracking API.
