Learn About Delivery Sub-Status

Plans: All plans Platforms: All platforms


Subtags are predefined statuses supported by AfterShip Tracking. The checkpoint messages received from carriers are mapped to these subtags for additional information on shipments.

For example, when the package departs from the facility, then it is mapped to Subtag Code: InTransit_007 with subtag departure scan.

To check how many sub-statuses are available and what each of them means, find the list below.
