For USPS, you can sign up for USPS Informed Delivery. This will let you know anytime you have mail or a package coming to a registered address.

FedEx offers the FedEx Delivery Manager, which works in the same way as USPS Informed Delivery. If you have a reference number and the date the package was shipped, you can use this information to look up tracking information with UPS.

What do I do if I haven’t received my package from FirstMile?

The first thing to do is check the tracking information. If the tracking information shows that the package was delivered, then check your surroundings, including neighbors, to see if the package may have been misplaced or delivered to an incorrect address.

If you are still not able to find the package, then you will need to file a claim with FirstMile.

To do this, visit the FirstMile Claims Policy and FAQs. There you will find detailed information on the steps needed to file a claim, including any documentation you may need to have.

When you can submit a claim depends on how the package was shipped. You typically will have to wait a certain number of days with there being no updates to the tracking information prior to being able to submit a claim.

If FirstMile loses your package, you will need to go through the same process as claiming for a lost package.

If the investigation shows that FirstMile lost the package, your reimbursement will depend on the weight of the package.

Packages under one pound are covered up to $50. Packages over one pound are covered up to $100. The sender has the option to offer additional insurance, though this will increase the overall cost of shipping.

What happens if I miss my FirstMile delivery?

If you happen to miss your FirstMile delivery, you may notice that the tracking information changes to read “attempted delivery.” Depending on the courier, a second attempt at delivery may be made automatically.

If not, you may get a door tag from the courier that informs you that your package was attempted and is being held at a nearby facility.

If this is the case, you should contact the number on the door tag to make arrangements to obtain your package.

You can either pick up your package in person by bringing the door tag and your government-issued photo ID, or you can request redelivery during a time in which you know you will be home to receive the package.

What time will my FirstMile package arrive?

FirstMile packages can arrive at different times of the day depending on who the courier is.

Typically, packages will arrive no sooner than 8 PM and no later than 9 PM, except on holidays. USPS does not deliver on Sundays or Federal holidays. DHL does not deliver on the weekends. If the delivery is to a commercial address, then you can expect it to arrive by close of business and not later.

Where is my FirstMile package?

Determining where your FirstMile package is at is best done by entering the tracking information into the FirstMile package tracker. This gives the most current information. You may see that your package is at a certain warehouse, in transit, or out for delivery.

Where is my FirstMile tracking number?

The FirstMile tracking number is going to be located in different locations based on the type of courier and service used.

For USPS, the tracking number is located in the bottom box underneath the barcode.

For FedEx, the tracking number is located in the bottom box above the barcode.

For UPS, the tracking number is located in the third box, almost the center of the label. This tracking number is also above the barcode.

DHL tracking numbers are usually located just beneath the barcode and are 10 digits in length.

Why is my FirstMile package not moving?

The most common reason for your FirstMile package to not be moving is because it is in transit from one destination to the next and has not been scanned yet.

Once the package arrives at the new destination, it will then be scanned, and the tracking information will be updated accordingly.

The best example of this is when the package arrives at the courier’s warehouse but must then travel to another warehouse before being placed on the truck for final delivery.

Why is my FirstMile package pending?

A pending package means that information has come in that has hanged the estimated arrival time of the package. This can happen in cases of inclement weather, where the package may be stuck at a warehouse until the weather is clear.

A pending status can also happen if the courier has received information that would change the final destination of the package.
