SEATTLE -- July 15, 1996
Airborne Express, the carrier of choice for American business, today announced yet another service option for its customers around the world - Internet-based shipment tracking.

Any company or individual sending a package by Airborne Express may now get an up-to-the-minute report on its status - 24-hours-a-day - simply by accessing Airborne's homepage on the World Wide Web: https://airborne-express.com.

With Airborne's tracking option on the homepage menu, customers need only insert an airbill number to receive a wealth of information on their shipment, including:

Current status
Exact date, time and place where package was picked up and delivered
Person who signed for the package
Service type, weight, number of pieces and description
Billing references and special notes

"Of course, this isn't the only way our customers can keep track of their shipments," said Airborne Director of Systems Development Rod Parker. "But it's just one more handy alternative from a company that is absolutely focused on flexibility, options and custom solutions, especially for our business customers, large and small."

In addition to the new Internet-based tracking capability, Airborne offers LIGHTSHIP" TRACKER Tracking Software, the first on-line shipment tracking software that allows customers to not only track multiple shipments world-wide, but to store a permanent, comprehensive record of all shipments for later analysis.

Airborne's homepage on the Internet, which is undergoing constant enhancement, also offers cost-saving shipping tips, instructions, new product and service information and a customer feedback section for comments.

Airborne Express, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 1996, is the third-largest and fastest-growing domestic air express delivery carrier in the nation. Airborne offers customized solutions to fit the needs of businesses worldwide, including same-day, overnight express, next afternoon, second day, international express and freight, logistics, warehousing and ocean services.
