  • Publication number: 20180341914
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses one or more NFC tags embedded in, affixed to, or printed into a delivery label that may be used to track mail. After an NFC shipping tag has been scanned, delivery information relating to shipping a piece of mail may be received and stored in a database, where that shipping information may be associated with the scanned NFC tag. When a shipping label includes two parts, a first part may be a receipt that can be detached and retained by a sender of a piece of mail, and a second part may stays attached to that piece of mail as it is delivered to a destination. A sender preparing to send mail may provide information that allows electronic devices to receive messages as a NFC shipping label is scanned by different NFC scanners at different locations as that mail moves toward a destination.
