Delivery Attempt

Delivery Attempt

A delivery attempt occurs when a carrier arrives at the designated delivery location with a shipment but cannot deliver the freight due to reasons beyond their control. Common reasons for unsuccessful delivery attempts include:
  1. Incorrectly listed delivery location hours
  2. Incorrect delivery address
  3. Absence of someone available to receive the delivery
  4. Congestion at a port preventing timely delivery by the driver

Delivery attempts typically result in a delay of at least one day.

We apply a standard fee for each local delivery attempt. For non-local shipments, the fees vary depending on the carrier utilized.
