Checking your tracking number to see where item is at and what you saw is arrived at delivery office. At first you may get confused though by mere looking at the shipping term you will know that it is indeed a good news.
However, you shouldn’t be entirely happy cause there are more involved after seeing arrived at delivery office on your tracking information.
So in this article I will explain everything that involves with this very shipping term and what you should expect next after seeing it on your tracking number.
What does arrived at delivery office mean?
Arrived at delivery office means that your item has reached the office of the logistics or delivery service that will further deliver your item to you.
The truth is this is indeed a good news cause it simply means that very soon you will receive your item or it will be delivered to you.
- Arrival at destination country end of tracking delivery shortly (What it means)
- In transit arriving late: What does it mean
For a better explanation i will use both Amazon and aliexpress to explain this shipping term.
For example, you bought a product on AliExpress which you used the aliexpress standard shipping as your shipping method. After your item has reached the destination country and cleared by customs, it will be handed over to the delivery service which can be Speedaf, or your country local delivery service.
Immediately your item reached at the delivery office or company and which it will be scanned, what you will see on your tracking number will be item arrived at delivery office.
This is to notify the recipient the actual location of it’s item or product and he or she should expect next. Definitely when you see arrived at delivery office on your tracking information you should know that what follows next will be left the delivery office and out for delivery.
What follows next after arrived at delivery office
Immediately you see arrived at delivery office on your tracking number information, what follows next will be departed from delivery office and your item will be out for delivery.
Once an item has reached the delivery office, it heads towards the end of delivery for that very item and within a day or two you should receive your item all things being equal.
If i said all things being equal because there are certain things that will prevent your it being delivered to you and they include the followings.
CUSTOM DUTY: Custom clearance shouldn’t take more than two days though it all depends on country’s custom duty and how fast or slow they are. Aliexpress standard shipping, DHL, ARAMEX, EMS are quite very fast but that fast shipping might be hindered by slow and sluggish custom clearance.
If you are buying an item online and within your location or country, you won’t come across custom duty or office of inward exchange. But if the item is coming from another country then surely it will be checked by the customs before it gets dispatched to the recipient location.
RECIPIENT LOCATION: Location is another factor that plays a major role on how fast or slow you will receive your parcel or aliexpress item. If you happen to live in a remote environment where it is quite difficult to access, dhl might drop your parcel with the local post office to have deliver to you.
BAD WEATHER CONDITION: Bad weather can cause a delay in delivering an item to a recipient especially during winter from what I have observed. During that period you will see delivery personnel come up with bunches of excuses as to why they are yet to deliver your item, at the end you might be required to go to the nearest local post office to pickup your item.
LAZY DELIVERY PERSONNEL: If your item happens to fall in the hands of a lazy delivery personnel, it can even take up to one full week to receive your item after seeing arrived at delivery office on your tracking information.
These are the causes of items not being delivered on time especially when it has already reached the destination country or the delivery office.
How long after arrived at delivery office
From my observation it usually takes between one weeks to two weeks to receive your item after arrived at delivery office on your tracking information especially if you bought a product from aliexpress.
The fastest I have seen three working days and that was when I used dhl to ship my items. So bear in mind that delivery service or the logistics you used plays an important role on how fast or slow you will receive your item.
Fedex is quite very fast just like dhl just that some of their delivery personnel are too lazy for my liking or maybe I will say the delivery personnel in my area.
After seeing arrived at delivery office and you are yet to receive your item after a week and going to two weeks, this delay can be caused by the delivery company or due to other factors. Also it seems the delay is usually caused by the custom duty or the workers at the sorting center.
Arrival at delivery office EMS
This means your package has arrived at the EMS delivery office and from there it will be out for delivery. Having used EMS for my shipping on few occasions, I will rate them 8/10 when it comes to fast shipping and you should be prepared to receive your item within four days after seeing arrival at delivery office Ems.
What does arrived at delivery office mean on wish
It means the item you ordered from wish has reached the logistics or delivery office which will deliver your item to your house or location.
So whenever you see arrived at delivery office upon tracking your item, kindly know that very soon you will receive your item except if there was a delay by the logistics, due to bad weather condition or some other factors. This is where I come to the conclusion of this article, arrived at delivery office
