What Happens After a “Shipment Arrived at Aramex Destination Facility” Alert?
The fact the shipment has now arrived there means that delivery is close to occurring.
The package will be sorted within this facility and a truck will be assigned so that the item can go out for delivery.
Normally, this process will take 24 to 48hrs (depending on whether the facility is experiencing a backlog); with delivery taking place the same day that the item is loaded onto the truck.
At this point, you will receive an Aramex “Out for Delivery” notification.
This is why the alert is a positive one to receive. The package is just a couple of steps away from delivery when you receive the update.
[Note: If customer pick-up has been requested as part of the shipment order, you will receive an update stating that the item is ready for collection rather than out for delivery.]

Tracking Stuck on “Shipment Arrived at Aramex Destination Facility”
If your tracking ends up stuck on this update for more than 2 or 3 days without any sign of delivery, (or further progress alerts); there will have been a hold-up inside the facility.
The most common reason for this is simply high package volumes within the facility.
This can be exacerbated by any technical issues (sorting machines or delivery trucks), as well as staffing levels, (Covid being a regular problem for logistics with lockdowns and staff shortages throughout the duration of the pandemic).
I would recommend that you keep an eye on your Aramex tracking, and if the package is held within the facility for more than 3 business days, you contact customer services.
Overall, the “Shipment Arrived at Aramex Destination Facility” update is a good one to get.
It means that the package has reached the region of the recipient, and after sortation will be assigned a truck for delivery.
If all goes to plan, you should have your package within a couple of days.
If the days begin to add up and you still see no signs of the shipment, I recommend that you contact Aramex to find out why.
