Perhaps you should talk to your UPS representative.  :-)  Your UPS tracking 
information is in this form:  1Z [123456] [12] [1234567] [1] (as your 
shipper #, service level, tracking, checksum, respectively), included with 
that data is Ref1# and Ref2#.

Our shipping department enters the Interchange order number as (either) 
Ref1 or Ref2.  About 36 hours after shipping a package the customer can 
track the order via their Interchange order number (without knowing any of 
the 1Z tracking number).

Some information you will need for this to function, a) probably be nice 
and agree to the EULA and b) know your shipper #.
