Receive Item At Delivery Office (Inb): The Complete Guide

Seeing the tracking status “Item Arrived at Delivery Office” can raise questions about what happens next and when you’ll receive your package. This comprehensive guide will walk you through what it means when your item arrives at the delivery office, what happens next, and how to ensure you get your package as quickly as possible.

What Does “Arrived at Delivery Office” Mean for Your Package?

The tracking status “Arrived at Delivery Office” means your item has reached the local post office or delivery depot responsible for deliveries in your area. This is usually the final stop before delivery to your address.

It indicates your package is very close to being delivered now. The delivery office will sort your item and get it ready for the postal carrier who does deliveries in your neighborhood.

What Happens After an Item Arrives at the Delivery Office?

Once your package arrives at the delivery office, a few things happen:

  • The item is sorted and processed for delivery. This involves scanning the tracking barcode and assigning it to the correct postal carrier route.
  • The delivery route is planned for the carrier. They will load up all the packages for their route that day and prepare to head out to deliver.
  • The carrier loads your package (and others) onto their truck to deliver that day. Deliveries typically happen anytime between 9am – 7pm on weekdays.
  • The postal carrier arrives in your area and delivers the package to your address. They will scan it as delivered once handed to you or left in your mailbox/parcel locker.

How Long Until Delivery After Arriving at Office?

Most items arriving at the delivery office in the morning will be delivered that same day. If your package reaches the office later in the afternoon, it may be delivered the next working day instead.

However, delivery time can vary depending on:

  • Local mail volumes and backlogs
  • Weather delays
  • Holidays and weekends
  • Address accessibility

While most standard deliveries happen within 1-3 days of arriving at the delivery office, it’s not guaranteed. Track your mail and contact your local post office if you don’t receive your item within a week.

How to Get Your Package Faster from the Delivery Office

If you need your item urgently, there are a few things you can try to get it delivered faster from the delivery office:

  • Contact your local post office and nicely request faster handling if it’s time-sensitive. They may be able to prioritize it.
  • Pay for expedited services like Express Mail if shipping domestically. This jumps to the top of sorting and delivery queues.
  • Intercept the package and pick it up directly from the delivery office with proof of ID. You’ll avoid wait time for home delivery.
  • Hold your mail at your local post office for pickup if you want to get it right away.
