The most common factors resulting in delayed delivery are misspelled, incomplete or outdated addresses that lead to failed delivery attempts, incorrectly completed order forms, package redirections, customs, and poor weather conditions.
Sometimes difficult-to-access property can also lead to these delays: problems such as no doorbell, unclear address at said location, protective pets, and maintenance work around the building area are not uncommon for the cause of delays.
