ShipTrack will even notify online shoppers as to where they can collect their delivery, automatically.
Once a driver is ready to deliver the package ordered, they may have to deal with no one being home. When this occurs, he/she simply clicks a button within the ShipTrack app and the app will identify the closest partner site to the recipients location.
