Usps Says Delivered But No Package (What To Do + More)
Why does USPS say delivered but there is no package?
It could happen that a USPS scan is not correct or that the post carrier misplaced the parcel in difficult-to-see locations or sent it accidentally to a neighbor. If neither one of these causes your missing parcel, you can call your local postoffice to get it back.
Why does my package say delivered, but not here?
You’ll probably see your package within the next 24 hours, so please be patient and watch out.
It is possible that your package was not delivered to the address you have requested.
For confirmation, make sure to check your mailbox and look under stairs for any packages.
It may also be worthwhile to ask your neighbours if you received any mail with your name in it. Because of unfamiliar routes, mail carriers may misinterpret apartment and building numbers.
What Should I Do If My Package Isn’t Here But It Says Delivered?
GPS is used by the USPS to transport packages. It is possible for a package not to be delivered on time.
Most cases your order will arrive within a business day.
But if it hasn’t been more than a few days, and you’ve checked all your properties, spoken to your neighbors, and your parcel still isn’t there, contact the nearest USPS postal office.
To find out the status of your order, you should contact the supervisor or the manager in charge.
If the USPS cannot help you and your package doesn’t arrive after seven days, please contact USPS Customer Care at 1-800-275-8777 to make a Missing Mail Claim. The claim can be filed at your nearest postal office or online.
The postal worker who received your missing mail claim will begin a thorough search of each step the package took between delivery and drop off.
The majority of cases involving missing mail are those that involve packages which were scanned but were not put on a vehicle for delivery, or that were left unattended.
The best way to get it there is by starting a Missing Mail Request.
Are Packages Delivered by USPS Before Delivery?
USPS usually doesn’t label packages as delivered prior to delivering them.
Once a package is sent to the USPS, one error will occur. An employee scanning a package with the “Delivered”, rather than the “Accepted” settings can cause a package to be labeled as delivered.
Scan errors can also occur when mail carriers scan a package to indicate that it has been delivered at another location. House, apartment or business.
The carrier can scan a package to show it as “Delivered” at another location before delivery attempts are made. A customer could see “Delivered”, “Delivery Attempt” statuses, even if nothing is done.
Scan error are far more common that you may think.
An audit by the USPS revealed that 191 package packages, out of 1,100, had been scanned as delivered. However they were in the delivery unit awaiting to be dropped off.
Why Does USPS Show My Package As Delivered If I Just Shipped It?
You might see a USPS tracking # that shows a delivery status even though it was just created.
This message may have been sent by USPS to a recycled number.
Check the information of the tracking number to see if it has been recycled. If your tracking number was recycled, you’ll usually find a destination address and delivery time that don’t correspond with the origin of your package.
Recycled tracking numbers happen because of the high volume of shipments sent through USPS. The USPS delivers more than 20,000,000 packages every day so it is not unusual for them to recycle tracking numbers.
If you suspect you may be dealing with an old tracking number you should wait.
Once the stamp is scanned by the postoffice, all tracking data will be corrected to reflect this correct information.
The USPS may have incorrectly scan your parcel, which could explain why the “Delivered” label on your newly shipped package is so prominent.
Tracking information that was sent by USPS will display your package as delivered if it is set to Delivery instead of Accepted during scanning.
Unfortunately this does not mean that your tracking number will be updated when you scan the label again.
However, USPS customer support representatives should be capable of providing you with updated information through their internal tracking system.
You can either call USPS customer service at 1-800-877-8339 or stop by your local post office to have them look into your tracking information in more detail.

It is possible for a USPS mail package to be marked delivered yet be returned as missing. You can have a package marked delivered but not yet received by the USPS.
It’s also possible the package was placed in an unusual location or delivered to a neighbor. You can also check with the local postal office to file a Missing Mail Claim.
