Usps express tracking not updating 2016
Edited by: Florida Seller on Dec 2, 2014 AM Items “Out for delivery” are expected to be updated that same day to: “Delivered”; “Notice left”; “Notice Left (No Authorized Recipient Available)” [when signature required]; or another appropriate status.When the tracking system does not get an update from the carrier by a certain time, “Delivery status not updated” is used instead.Their internal system can give them more information than is provided to the public through the USPS tracking website. Don’t contact the customer until they contact you, as they probably wont even notice the delay. Besides the fact that I want them to make more money so we don’t have to subsidize them, they have really improved their systems and are the fastest and most consistent. I find that it’s a lazy mailman or one who’s equipment failed and doesn’t bother to keep track of it to handle it when he gets back to the post office.Before I made any call, the first package was delivered by a different postal office. The first postman found the address is not in his region, so he sent back to the main office, and the package was shipped to the correct office then. I have about 25-30 that say the same thing right now!if there's no activity now, it's either lost or traveling around someplace. it contained a new handgun and some other firearms related items. i filed a claim, the postal service paid on it and 5 weeks later, that package was dropped off at my office. they shipped it back to me, not knowing they had already paid the claim.it is not unusually for shipment to go astray while in transit, then magically appear delivered. when it arrived, i contacted the local PO and told them what had happened. moral of the story: some shipments get to travel the world, other meet untimely ends.
I have another package out for delivery yesterday, and now shown as “Delivery status not updated” too… If you are concerned about the package, you can call USPS customer service.I sent a priority mail with signature confirmation last Friday, and the package arrived at the buyer’s local regional office the next day, and then went to the last office which handles the delivery, so the status shows “out for delivery” first, and then for some reason, it went back to the delivery office, and then the regional office, now it just shows “Delivery status not updated” from 11/29/2014.I checked the recipient address, and it was a name of a school system, while the actual address shows one of the schools in the system. most likely is the parcel was loaded into the wrong van and went out for a joy ride and then back to the sorting center. if it showed delivered, and the person you sent it to did not receive it, that would be a different case all together.This most often happens whe the sender prints their own labels and the barcode is too light or fuzzy or crimped or wrapped around a corner. They can be manually entered but sometimes the dispatch time is tight and they go unscanned or the person sorting the mail doesn't want to bother with it.This seldom happens at delivery unless the tracking number is unreadible and can’t be manually entered.I have sent messages to the post master, but nothing ever changes and I don’t have time to sit down and find the numbers for all of the local post offices and call to make sure that someone else is doing their job.The only time I worry about it is if I have a client who says they didn’t receive their package and that rarely happens. ) I have noticed that Amazon doesn’t punish you if the postal service doesn’t mark it for not being delivered if they see that it was shipped on time and out for delivery within the correct time frame. I would rather try to find a way to promote my business and make more sales than chase down packages that I know got delivered, but by a postal worker who didn’t or wouldn’t do their job properly. I don’t have a lot of packages, so it is kinda easy for me to keep an eye on them.I had this issue recently and chose to call the delivery post office.It is a small town and I easily connected to the postmaster.
