Delivery is the Carrier’s delivery, or attempted delivery of a shipment at or prior to 10:30 AM local time, in accordance with the Carrier’s normal transit standards in effect at the time of the shipment under the terms and conditions set forth in this item 757.

To initiate a refund request, the debtor shall notify the Carrier via email to firstname.lastname@example.org within fifteen (15) calendar days of the date of the scheduled delivery commitment. The email will include the pro number of the shipment in question, debtor’s company name and contact information along with a description of the service failure.
