Tracking / Tracing
What is a freight bill/pro # and how should it be entered?
Freight bill /pro # is a number assigned to each shipment by the carrier and used for tracking the shipment to its destination. Freight bill numbers vary in how they are formatted. At Saia, we check status by the nine digit number (no dashes). The last digit is a check digit and is not needed for tracking purposes.
What options can I use to trace my shipments?
At Saia, we offer a variety of tracing options:Pro - (Number assigned to each shipment by carrier for tracking purposes)Bill of Lading – (Legal contract between the shipper and the carrier for the transportation of goods)Shipper - (Number that shipper assigns to shipment)Partner - (Partner’s pro #)P.O. - (Vendors Purchase Order number)
Why can't the tracking system find my freight bill number?
Valid pro numbers are always found in our system. Please check your pro number for any errors.
Can I link to Saia's tracing functions from my own website?
