- ROBOTIS cannot be held liable for any shipments arriving at a later date and time than the selected service such as 2-Day, 3-Day or Overnight Shipping. Any disputes due to a late delivery must be directly dealt with the third party shipping carrier (FedEx or UPS) as there may be several factors affecting the transit time such as weather, safety protocols, etc. It would be up to the customer to verify and submit a claim to the carrier if the shipping time guarantee was not met.
