  • the day on which the customer or a third party – other than the carrier – acquires the physical possession of the last product, in the case of several goods ordered by the customer in a single order and delivered separately;
  • the day on which the customer or a third party – other than the carrier – acquires the physical possession of the last lot or element, in the case of the delivery of a good consisting of several lots or elements.
