Some more tips:

  • It takes some time for records of a tracking number to show up in our system. Normally it’s 4 hours after sending out the package.
    Another common mistake is wrong tracking number. A EMS tracking number consists of 13 characters. First two and last two characters are alphabets. The 3rd to 11th characters are digits.
    If you do not have the above two problems, please ask your sender to call EMS service phone, 11185, to find out what happened.
  • A valid EMS tracking number consists of 13 characters. First two and last two characters are alphabets. The 3rd to 11th characters are digits.
  • “attempted delivery” means that there was nobody to collect the package on the address you provided. A notice should be left to the recipient when attempting to deliver. Recipient can choose to pick up the package themselves or request redelivery according to instructions on the notice.
  • If your order delivery in Apple Store online was assigned to China Post EMS, please call China Post Apple’s customer service center 4008011183 to query the status.
  • Shipping numbers can often be given incorrectly as a result of incorrect language translations. Most international shippers will work hard to provide good customer service and will find the correct shipping number if you were given an incorrect one.
