APC Delivery Not Arrived – Guide
If you find yourself in a situation where your APC Overnight delivery has not arrived, it is essential to understand the steps you can take to resolve the issue promptly.
We recommend the following approach if it happens to you:
1. Stay Calm and Gather Relevant Information
After discovering that your APC Overnight delivery has not arrived as expected, it is crucial to remain calm and collect relevant information before taking any further action.
There could well be a legitimate reason for the delay and/or absence of delivery, and you can avoid the embarrassment of yelling on the phone if the information is easily available to you.
So, first, you should locate your tracking number, which you can find on the receipt or confirmation email provided by APC Overnight.

2. Check Tracking Information
The next step is to access APC Overnight’s online tracking system.
Visit their official website and enter your tracking number.
The tracking system will provide you with the most recent information available about the status and location of your package.
Pay close attention to any updates, including delivery attempts, exceptions, or potential issues.
This is where an explanation of the non-delivery scenario should be made clear.

4. Document Communications
During your interactions with APC, it is a good idea to keep a record of all conversations.
Make note of the date and time of each communication, the names of the representatives you speak with, and a summary of the conversation.
The same applies to any emails you send or tickets you open via the website.
This documentation will serve as evidence in case you need to escalate the matter or file a formal complaint.

5. Cooperate and Provide Additional Information
The customer service team may request additional details to help investigate the missing delivery.
Cooperate with their requests promptly.
Provide any necessary information, such as descriptions of the package contents, proof of purchase, or any special delivery instructions you provided during the order process.
The more information you can provide, the better equipped APC Overnight will be to locate your package.
Although you may be annoyed by the inconvenience of the missing package, the representative is only trying to do their job.
If you see the process of finding the item as a “team effort” where your assistance is required, APC will be able to work more efficiently to find out what went wrong.
Follow Up & Keep An Eye on Your Tracking
Once you have reported the missing delivery, you should follow up with APC Overnight regularly.
Inquire about the progress of the investigation and request updates on the situation.
Regularly check the tracking system for any updates or changes related to your package.
In other words, keep the pressure on. 😁
File a Complaint / Missing Item Claim
If all attempts to resolve the issue directly with APC Overnight prove unsuccessful, you may consider filing a formal complaint and or starting a missing shipment claim.
You can find out more on the APC Overnight website on how to do this.
