Basic parcel statuses
All statuses are displayed in English, however, their translation is usually not difficult, because. they are formed taking into account the indications of international standards and accurately indicate the current status of the parcel (at clearance, at customs, it should go to the country of destination, etc.). The following notations often cause difficulties in translation:
- Electronic Shipping Info Received – information about a new package has been received at the post office;
- Arrived at Sort Facility – the parcel is in the process of sorting;
- Depart USPS Sort Facility – the cargo has left the sorting center and is following a further route;
- Customs Clearance – the cargo is at customs and undergoes the necessary documentary procedures.
In some cases, the status is maintained for several days. Most often this is caused by a failure of the tracking program, which is eliminated within two to three days.
