Package Not Due for Delivery? DoNotPay Explains What You Need To Do
Does your FedEx delivery status display say ‘package not due for delivery?’ You needn’t worry because DoNotPay will help you understand why you’re seeing this message and what you’ll have to do to get your package promptly.
If your shipment status says that your package is not due for delivery, it might be that way because:
- The sender has selected the economic plan for the shipment, and it’s Saturday. FedEx delivers packages on this day of the week only if it’s a premium shipment
- The package did not make it through security and was sent back to the sender. It will then have to be resent by the sender
- The trucks are overloaded and don’t have space for any additional packages
- The shipper had chosen the allowed early delivery date when sending the package, meaning that he or she didn’t want the parcel to be sent before that date
- Packages that are due for delivery on a certain day are FedEx’s top shipping priority. If your package arrives earlier, it won’t be delivered until the expected date
- Freight arrived while the couriers were on the road, meaning there’s no one available to pick the cargo up
- FedEx doesn’t have enough drivers available at the moment, so it won’t be able to send your package. If this is the case and your shipment is late, and request a refund in a matter of clicks
FedEx will not allow you to pick up your package before the first delivery attempt. In some cases, you’ll be able to pick it up if you provide FedEx with a valid ID and your tracking number.
If you need the package earlier, you can try informing FedEx customer support that you want to pick it up by:
- Calling 1-800-GO-FEDEX
- Talking to FedEx’s chatbot on the company’s website
- Chatting with FedEx’s virtual agent by texting 29372
Once you’ve explained your situation to customer support, you will have to locate the nearest FedEx where your package is waiting to be delivered. Here’s a table containing all the ways you can track your FedEx package:
|Locate the 12-digit tracking number that’s on your FedEx® International Air Waybill and click on Track
|Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your tracking number. You will then receive an email with the location of your package
|This option allows you to locate your package without a tracking or reference number. You can also choose to receive notifications about the status of your shipment
