Solving Delhivery tracking issues
Why you can't track your Delhivery package
If you can't track your Delhivery package, it's usually because either the delivery driver has not yet scanned it into the tracking system. Either at pickup or between destinations on its route.
Why your Delhivery package is not updating or moving
Sometimes packages seem to stop moving midway. More than likely, everything is okay, but Delhivery may be busy.
Suppose your package has to pass between different Delhivery delivery facilities on its way to you:
- First, your package will stop outside the facility until Delhivery workers unload the truck. If the workload is high, your package may sit there for a while.
- Next, Delhivery workers will sort your package. You will get a tracking update when they scan the barcode. The status will say, “Package arrived at Delhivery facility.”
- Finally, Delhivery workers will load your package onto another truck. Your status will say, “Shipment left Delhivery facility.” After which, your package may pass through many more facilities until it reaches its destination.
Delays can also happen while Delhivery couriers drive your package through a crowded and busy country like India.
Delhivery tracking status explained
Delhivery’s tracking statuses are pretty easy to understand. Here, we define the most common status updates and how to fix any issues.
Package arrived at facility and Shipment left facility
Delhivery tries to be transparent with customers about timings by telling you when your package arrives and departs each facility.
The statuses “Package arrived at facility” and “Shipment left facility,” mean that Delhivery has your package and it is on its way.
Delhivery package arrived at facility
The Delhivery tracking status of “Delhivery package arrived at facility” means that your package has arrived at a scheduled facility on its route.
Most of the time, your package is traveling, stopping at a facility, and traveling again. India is a geographically large country, so packages often stop at Delhivery facilities.
Delhivery shipment left facility
As the name suggests, “Delhivery shipment left facility” means that your package has left one facility and is on the way either to another facility, or the final destination.
When your Delhivery tracking status is “Our executive is out for delivery,” it means the package is on its final route and your delivery will likely arrive that day.
How long a Delhivery delivery can take
Most domestic Delhivery deliveries happen within 72 hours. However, Covid-19 interruptions can increase the estimated time of arrival (ETA).
You can use your Delhivery tracking number with Circuit Package Tracker to find the reason for any delays with your delivery and get the latest ETA.
Why your Delhivery tracking is delayed
There are several reasons why Delhivery may delay your delivery, including poor traffic and weather in the destination location, or customs holding the package.
Delhivery tracking statuses for delayed packages
If your delivery is delayed due to poor traffic and weather, Delhivery will update the status from “shipment left facility” to “package arrived at facility” when it has moved.
If you find the status “order unloaded,” Delhivery may find your package is too heavy or there are “serious circumstances” to move on.
You can contact Delhivery Customer Support for help if a delay is longer than expected.
Customs will likely contact you if they hold your package for any reason. Your tracking status will also let you know if customs has your item. Check your Delhivery tracking number with Circuit Package Tracker and contact your local customs office for help.
