IML package tracking
A package tracking number gets assigned to every package, box, and document IML delivers. You can use it to keep track of the delivery process and make sure your shipment gets safely to its destination.
How to find your IML package tracking number
Your IML Commercial Express tracking number is a 13-digit unique code generated by IML on the shipping label given to you by email or SMS.
Your email or text message will contain the tracking number, a link to the IML website, and the Status page for tracking your package. From the website Status page, you can find where your package is while it is being delivered.
You can also find your IML tracking number on your shipping and delivery receipts, submission forms, online labels if you bought an insurance package online, and your sales receipt if you bought insurance at the Post Office or designated drop-off location.
How to track your IML package location
On the website status page, there will be a record of the initial drop-off to an IML drop-point for delivery or pick up for delivery from a business entity. Once the IML tracking number is assigned, your package is ready for transit.
IML scans your package as it moves from point to point to its destination. Circuit Package Tracker captures this information so both the sender and recipient can keep up-to-date on where your IML package is.
This information gets presented in real-time. It includes where your package is, where your package got scanned, your tracking number, and a version of the Proof of Delivery.
IML tracking is free and available 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
If your IML package is shipping from IML Express China, the website may display shipping information available before IML Commercial Express in Russia takes control of the delivery process.
If the shipment gets transferred from IML to the Russian Post, it will be assigned a new tracking number which can be verified from the Russian Post website.
You can also use a package tracking system to find your package in the delivery process.
Mobile apps like Circuit Package Tracker allow you to customize alerts for your phone and follow the delivery process with moment-to-moment information.

Why Your IML Commercial Express Package is Not Updating or Moving
If a package is in one place for a long time, it may be that something is wrong with your shipment or the tracking service.
Sometimes, a package can be stalled in customs inspection hubs or delayed at one point of the delivery relay by lousy weather.
Third-party sorting stations may lack updated systems and can take additional time to input scanned delivery information into the worldwide network.
IML commercial express package tracking status explained
Two important status messages to understand: "In Transit” and “Pending.”
IML Commercial Express package is in transit
When the status of your delivery is “In Transit,” your package got picked up by IML and is in the process of delivery to the destination. Your package stays “In Transit” until it gets delivered.
Why your IML package is still in transit
Once IML has picked up your package from a pickup point, many factors can affect the location and time of delivery. IML involves sorting, scanning, transporting, and dropping off your bundles and packages. These activities affect the timing of delivery.
A package stuck in transit might be held by the delivery company or waiting in customs. Contact IML Commercial Express customer service to find out if any documentation or other considerations need to be made to move your shipment through customs.
The most common reason a package cannot be delivered is that the address is wrong or incomplete. Contact IML Commercial Express as soon as you realize there is a mistake in addressing.
Forbidden item lists differ from country to country.
If your shipment contains prohibited or restricted items, your package can stop at any point in the delivery process. Depending on the inspection location, your goods might be destroyed or returned to the sender.
If the packaging of your package has been damaged and shows leakage, spilling, or sharp items, delivery will be stopped.
Large, bulky, or awkward-shaped packages must be sorted manually and often get loaded onto trucks with other special handling items.
How long an IML package can stay in transit
Standard delivery time gets estimated by the level of delivery service bought and the distance that your package is shipped.
Transport issues, third-party handling, and inspections can change the estimated delivery to a later real-time drop-off.
IML commercial express package is pending
The website Status of your package is “Pending” at different points of the delivery process.
There will be a time between scans when the tracking information has not been updated. This delay can happen when your package is waiting for shipping at the country of origin, queued for inspection at customs, or has arrived in Russia but is not yet scanned for arrival.
Why your IML package may be pending
Your IML shipment status may read “Pending” because your package was not scanned individually. It was part of a bundle of packages in a truck or ship being bulk scanned.
When a large shipment is scanned this way, the whole shipment can progress to the sorting stage of delivery.
Plus, IML may scan your package in their sorting facility two to three days later.
This will delay your tracking status from being updated. If you do not find an update after five days, contact IML Commercial Express for help.

- and any disruptions in the service process (more on this below).

Media and book rates will be lower, and your package will take longer to be delivered. Any special shipping and handling requests will increase prices and might also add to the delivery time.
