FedEx Is Adding Music To Package Tracking

FedEx Is Adding Music To Package Tracking
Advertising

The delivery service has developed a new system that creates tracks based a person's package size and its journey across the country

Package tracking is a pretty boring affair—enter the endless string of numbers into a search function and watch as your package (hopefully) gets closer to its destination. But FedEx is trying to make it a more harmonious experience by creating music to go along with your package’s journey. SoundTrack translates shipping information into music, taking into account the size of the package, the distance it will have to travel, the musical styles of its destination, and even the weather.

The track also comes with a little animation as you watch all the different stops your package will have to make before landing on your doorstep. You don’t even need to send package through FedEx to enjoy the feature: the website has several stories of packages you can listen to, and it even offers the ability to create your own package in order to see how different shipping choices creates different sounds.
