Original Post

I've been tracking a package I shipped out last week. When I enter the deliver confirmation number is says that it was delivered to post office in the city I shipped it to and next it reads 'sorting completed for the day'.

Does anyone have any idea of what sorting completed means?

Maybe that it is out for delivery, or not yet sorted.

I believe it means it is in the city it belongs to & is waiting for the next business day when they can deliver it to the address.
