What are the USPS Tracking Statuses

?
  • Scan Events – Tracking InformationAs your mailpiece travels to its destination, postal employees scan the mailpiece when it is accepted; when it arrives or leaves a postal facility, and when it is in the process of being delivered.  These scan events can then be viewed by using the Track & Confirm function on usps.com®.

    A description of the most common scan information that you may see when tracking a package is as follows:

    • “Electronic Shipping Info Received” – This scan indicates that the shipper has notified the Postal Service™ that they intend to submit the item for processing and delivery. 
    •  “Acceptance” –This scan indicates that a Postal Service employee has accepted the item at a post office or that the carrier has picked up the item at a customer’s residence/business. 
    •  “Processed Through Sort Facility” – This scan indicates that the item has processed through and left a Postal Service processing facility. The item is currently in transit to the destination. 
    •  “Arrival at Unit” – This scan indicates that the item was scanned at the final postal unit where delivery of the item will take place. 
    •  “Processing Complete” – This scan indicates, for Delivery Confirmation™, Signature Confirmation™, and Express Mail® services, that the item has arrived at the Post Office™ for delivery. 
    • “Out-for-Delivery” – This scan indicates that the item has been given to a carrier for delivery to its final destination or placed in the customer’s Post Office Box. 
    •  “Notice Left” – This scan indicates that the item is ready for pickup at the Post Office. If it is unclaimed after a certain number of days it will be returned to the sender. 
    • “Delivered” – This scan indicates that the item has been picked up by or delivered to the final recipient. 
    • “Refused” – This scan indicates that the item was refused by the recipient at the final delivery address and will be returned to the sender. 
    • “Forwarded” – This scan indicates that the item has been forwarded to a different address. This is due to forwarding instructions or because the address or ZIP Code™ on the item was incorrect.
