Amazon started its' existence as Cadabra, and was founded in 1994 by Jeff Bezos.

Currently, Amazon offers items from various brands, both large and small.

How to find Amazon tracking number
Amazon package tracking number is usually provided by Amazon itself after the order is confirmed and the parcel is sent off. Usually, to find it, all you need to do is check either the store's orders page, or the order confirmation email.
Where is the Amazon tracking number, if neither of the above have it? Bear in mind that certain items require you to pay extra to provide detailed package tracking, or any kind of tracking at all, which might be why your package isn't present in most postal databases out there. If you're not sure, or if you're certain there is tracking attached to your item, make sure you check out Amazon 's help pages or, if you still have no luck finding it, call Amazon 's customer support.

Packages intended for France, Belgium or Netherlands have a tracking ID that starts with CC.
