He could possibly a trace investigator trying to verify your address.

Commonly used in the debt collection industry.

I think these days most debt collection is done over the phone, so probably unlikely to encounted this particular situation OP (not suggesting you are in debt or anything!)

it is possible for the telephone number to be on the parcel label-some couriers do this-in case the driver cant find your house,some companies put all your details on the label.
