Amazon has many ways of getting your Amazon order to you, and one of those ways is FedEx (Federal Express). And, as Amazon has started using FedEx more often, people are starting to find more blank FedEx doortag notices on their doors. So just what does a completely blank FedEx door tag notice mean? What are you supposed to do with it? Do you need to sign it?
Amazon is always trying new ways to provide greater delivery options to their customers, including partnering with the post office for Sunday delivery, the much tauted but as not yet real Amazon drone delivery service, and Amazon delivery lockers.
Anyways, speaking of headaches, back to the blank FedEx doortags that you may be receiving.
Here’s what they mean: exactly nothing, other than that FedEx has delivered a package to your door.
Now, you may think that finding a FedEx package at your door would be adequate to alert you to the fact that FedEx has left a package at your door.
FedEx has adopted sticking a blank FedEx doortag to your door as the universal symbol of “We’ve left a package at your door. Just below this piece of paper. It’s right there. You probably tripped over it getting to the door to read this tag that you were worried meant you’d missed a delivery.”
Now, of course, you may be thinking “Well, that way if someone has stolen the package, you’ll know that it was delivered, and missing.”
But we’re pretty sure that if someone is going to steal a package off the front stoop, the odds are good that they’ll take the doortag too.
No, there really seems to be no rhyme or reason to why FedEx is leaving the blank doortags and, in fact, we spoke directly with FedEx about this, and here is what they had to say:
“Delivery people leave the blank doortag when they deliver a package.”
So there you have it. You didn’t have another package that they tried to but couldn’t deliver, they don’t need your signature, they don’t need anything, other than, apparently, to fulfill their burning desire to slap a piece of paper on your door.
