Does anyone know what this means? I have the following details on a book:

  • 1/31/2012 5:36 AM - Arrival at Unit - PORT CHESTER,NY
  • 1/31/2012 8:54 AM - Arrival at Unit - PORT CHESTER,NY
  • 1/31/2012 9:09 AM - Unknown-PC - PORT CHESTER,NY
  • 1/31/2012 9:19 AM - Unknown-OF - PORT CHESTER,NY

Also curious about "unknown-PC" and "unknown-OF"

I don't know specifically what they mean, but I saw the same thing on book I recently mailed and it was delivered/marked received that day or the next. Just like yours, the two unknown scans were within an hour of the last "arrival at unit" scan.

Arrived At Unit  = the item is at the post office it will be delivered from

PC = Processing Complete. =  All the committed mail is distributed to the delivery routes and the Post Office box section.

OF = Out For delivery = All the committed mail has been delivered in the box section and carriers have left for their routes to deliver.

"Unknown" means, the scan is not associated with a particular individual.  These two events are generated by someone scanning a bar code located either in the distribution area (for the PC scan) or the box sectioin (for the OF scan).

Thanks for clearing that up, Diane.
