It would seem to me that you would need to talk to each individual shipping company that you work with to see what kind of web services they offer.

Most of the time they are just query strings that pass the tracking number to the shipping companies website.

Once you have the tracking number you can create a database with the order number, FEDEX tracking number, UPS tracking number, etc columns and store the numbers in the correct columns. Then check to see which column has a value then create the proper querystring link for the company's site.

ie.
if it's UPS
    give them http://www.ups.com/tracking_url?trackingnumber
end if

If you go to each company site and try to track a package- you will get the url...
