A control circuit dynamically controls the routing of an autonomous package-delivery terrestrial vehicle configured to simultaneously carry a plurality of packages be variously delivered to a plurality of different address to accommodate a disrupted delivery of at least one of the plurality of packages. The disruption of a delivery can be detected for example as a function of a passage of time and/or a message from an intended recipient of at least one of the plurality of packages. Per these teachings the control circuit can route the vehicle to a different one of the plurality of different addresses to effect delivery of a second one of the plurality of packages followed by routing the vehicle back to the first delivery address to complete the delivery that had been previously disrupted.
