What does Return to Shipper status mean?

Return to Shipper status refers to a situation where a shipment is returned to the original shipper after an unsuccessful delivery attempt or when the recipient refuses to accept the shipment. Return to Shipper status can occur due to various reasons such as incorrect address, damaged shipment, or refused delivery. The carrier or logistics provider will typically attempt to deliver the shipment a few times before returning it to the shipper. Return to Shipper status can cause delays and additional costs for the shipper, who may need to reship the product or issue a refund to the customer.
