Understanding Returns With Chit Chats

Sometimes shipments aren’t delivered as expected. They may be returned if they are undeliverable or returned by the customer.

All returned shipments, regardless of their original delivery address, follow the same basic journey. Once a shipment is deemed undeliverable or it is refused by a customer, the shipment will make its way back to the original sender via the return address on the label. Some carriers refer to this process as ‘reverse logistics’. 

Generally, if you know that you have a return on the way, you will be able to follow its journey with the original tracking number or the new tracking number provided by your recipient.
