How to track inbound and outbound shipments with carrier tracking numbers?

Has anyone found a module to track inbound and outbound shipments? I would like tracking numbers to display back on the sales orders, invoices, delivery orders for both inbound and outbound stock movements. That way when my employees take calls from customers regarding the status of their orders they can simply look up tracking in OpenERP rather than having to contact the vendor or check our shipping manifest in the warehouse.

Ideally OpenERP would integrate with our shipping software (UPS and FedEx) but for the time being I'm more concerned with just having a field to store the tracking information. I am aware that delivery orders have a "carrier tracking ref" field but once that is entered the tracking number appears no-where else in the system, so it is fairly useless. Also that field is not available on inbound delivery orders.


I'm looking for the same as well.

Like Josh, I'm just looking for a field to store the carrier tracking numbers which appears on my docs. Is this part of the core functionality? BTW did you guys find an answer? Please post it to help others like me. Thanks.

I'd be interested in an answer to this also - it was rather easy to add this feature to our online cart system (opencart) but I have not yet found any way to do this in openERP.
