Courier firm TNT UK Ltd. has revamped its web-based parcel tracking system to provide its customers with XML, SMS, Wap and e-mail access to track and trace parcels. TNT went live with the new version of its track-and-trace web-based tracking system on July 21, 2003. Unlike the previous version, the new track-and-trace system allows customers to check multiple consignments using a single query from the TNT website. The system's XML interface will allow selected TNT customers to access tracking information directly by sending a specially formatted XML message to TNT.
