Thanks Gunnar,
Current module indeed answer partially the question and could be extended as there are API with the selected Chinese website.
We currently only display a link to a website that displays the status of parcel.
With the API you could receive full status and build a complete path in the ERP (like when you query DHL website for example).

hi Chris,

I don't understand in all detail what you want to do but, so if my hint is possibly beside the point a little it would be due to that.

There is a Mdoule that deals with tracking express shipments.
It seems to be made for Chinese users (being part of the localization pack) express shippers but maybe the technoligy behind it can be useful for anyone
I think Eric Caudal who is quite active in the OCA and also this mailing list is involved in this somewhat

best ...Gunnar

Has anyone built (or would be interested in working on) a connector for LTL/Freight integration. 

The goal is to be able to generate BOLs and track shipments through LTL/Freight companies. 

Two possible options

1) Integrate with brokers like, freightcenter or Red Hawk Global who have APIs and provide access to a larger number of carriers
2) Integrate directly with the carriers like saia, old dominion, yrc, etc.
