Hey guys, I ordered a package due to be delivered tmrw by FedEx Home Delivery and this message popped up right when it arrived in Keasbey NJ at 4:20PM EST today, and I was wondering what does this message mean? thank you :)
I have a children's book that has been shipped USPS. This is what I saw when I checked the tracking: Possible delay in delivery due to arrival at incorrect carrier facility - December 2, 2011 10:31:00 AM . The message hasn't changed, I don't know how long the delay is supposed to be and no clue where the incorrect facility is located. I just love criptic messages.
Usually it means something is wrong with the package. Maybe the box was damaged and needs to be repacked, or the contents were damaged, could even be the address label is incorrect (wrong zip,etc.) and they are verifying address.
We once got a box from a relative that was supposed to contain a chocolate fruit cake; instead it contained 5 identical books! Obviously someone at the post office pilfered the cake and replaced it with some pilfered books from another box. I just wonder what they replaced the stolen books with!
Dang, this just happened to me. It's super frustrating because the package is only about twenty miles away. I would just drive over and get it if they are having an issue with it. The message about it being delayed appeared after it said that it was out for delivery which leads me to believe that USPS possibly tried to deliver the package that morning but didn't because no one was home. However, usually they leave a note stating that a delivery attempt was made and this message has never came up in the past. Of course USPS has been known to do some crazy stuff. It probably doesn't help that I live in the middle of nowhere and that they might not even think I have a valid address!
I am pissed that I was supposed to receive a book by the 26th by a guy who's show I am going to TONIGHT on the 28th & I track it & on the 25th it was out for delivery, then delayed- external factors, then possible delay- incorrect carrier facility! Are you kidding me!!!! Fed Ex Smart Post? USPS!!!! So the guy has one day, one time & no book for him to auto graph. This is unacceptable!!!
