Waiting for your Amazon package to arrive and confused by some of the notifications you’re getting? We’ve all been there.
So, what does the phrase “Package Has Left the Carrier Facility” actually mean? We’re here to tell you — just keep reading!
On Amazon, “Package Has Left the Carrier Facility” means that your package has left the main carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc) facility and is now on its way to its next location. Often, this will be your local mail carrier location (USPS, etc).
When your package has left the carrier facility, you can expect that your package is making its way to you slowly. Read on to learn more!
The best way to track your Amazon shipment after it has left the carrier facility is through Amazon’s tracking service. You can find this by going through Your Orders on Amazon’s website or app and tracking your order there.
While you might be able to track your package through another mail carrier, Amazon’s service seems to be the best and most up to date. It’s a great way to find out exactly where your package is — and when you can expect it to be delivered.
Some mail carriers might not consistently update their movements in real time. As a result, Amazon won’t either. While this can be confusing and annoying, stay patient. You’ll slowly understand where your package is!
Once your package has left the carrier facility (which is often UPS, FedEx, etc), this means that your package is now on its way to its next location. This will often be your main local mail carrier, like USPS, though your package might hit a few other destinations along the way.
If your package is on its way to your local mail carrier’s location, then you can likely expect to have your order delivered sometime soon. This might not mean by the end of the day — but definitely in the next few days.
Never assume your package is actually on its way to your doorstep until your tracking says that your package is Out for Delivery. Once it’s Out for Delivery, then you’ll receive your package by the end of the day!
Unfortunately, you cannot change the time and date of your delivery once your package has been shipped. When your package is at the carrier facility, this means that it has already been in the shipping process. Therefore, you cannot change your order at all.
However, if your package is oversized or bulky and is being delivered by a special carrier, then you might be able to change things during this process. Nothing is guaranteed. Calling Amazon’s Customer Service is the best way to find out all your options!
You cannot cancel your order once your package has been shipped. When your package leaves the carrier facility, this means that it’s in the shipping process. Therefore, you cannot cancel your order during this time.
The best time to cancel your order is before your order ever ships. Often, this is before your order is packaged and leaves the warehouse. Try to cancel your order very quickly if needed. Otherwise, you likely won’t be able to cancel it at all.
If your package has departed an Amazon facility but it is not yet Out for Delivery, don’t worry. Your package is still in the process of getting to you. It’s just not quite there yet.
If your package has departed an Amazon facility and is not labeled as Out for Delivery, this likely means that your package is being sent to a local mail carrier, such as USPS. Once your package arrives there, that mail carrier will be in charge of delivering your order to you.
Therefore, you should never assume that your package is actually on its way to your doorstep until you get that Out for Delivery notification.
The shipping process can be long, at times. Your package could go through many different facilities and carriers. It happens. Just look for that Out for Delivery message so you know when your package is actually going to land on your doorstep!
Confused because your package now says that it has left the carrier facility twice? Don’t worry! This is likely just a mistake done by whoever was scanning your package.
Your package may have accidentally been scanned twice during this process, which would then show up as leaving the carrier facility twice. This is common and will not affect your package’s delivery at all.
Accidental mistakes like scanning a package twice is common, but mail carriers and delivery drivers will quickly fix any problems that may arise as a result of these mistakes.
So, if your package says it has left the carrier facility twice, you don’t need to do anything. Just wait and your order’s tracking will likely change correctly as it gets closer to being delivered on your doorstep!
When your “Package Has Left the Carrier Facility”, this means that your Amazon package has left one mail facility (UPS, FedEx, etc) and is on its way to another location. Often, it will soon end up at your local mail carrier’s location, such as USPS.
