What to do if SF Express Says Delivered But No Package?
Double-check your tracking
The first step is to double-check the tracking and/or delivery note for any extra details.
It could be that the item was delivered to a neighbor or left in a safe place at the property.
If extra information has been provided that will help you locate the delivered package, you have your answer.
Delivery took place and you just need to locate the item.
Check around the delivery location
If the tracking information does not reveal any more details, I still recommend that you go on a little hunt around the delivery location.
Talk to everyone at the address to see if the package was handed over to them and they signed for it and forgot to mention it.
Knock on the neighbor’s door to see if they received the parcel on your behalf.
Ultimately, you will want to make sure that the package is nowhere around the property before you start making inquiries with SF Express.

Theft or Package Misplacement
Unfortunately, theft or package misplacement can happen during transit or even after delivery if the driver left the item in an unsafe place.
While SF Express takes measures to minimize these incidents, they can still happen.
