Google delivers parcel search

Google has introduced a new search feature that turns up shipping information from Federal Express and United Parcel Service, the company's latest move to expand beyond keyword searches.

Google takes people directly to the FedEx or UPS Web page containing the location of a particular package when they type in their parcel tracking number into its search site. The new "Search by Number" feature, announced Friday, also brings up information linked to other kinds of numbers, such as patent numbers, equipment identification numbers issued by the Federal Communications Commission, and airplane registration numbers from the Federal Aviation Administration.
