30 Jul 2005 14:19 Suzhou Consignment Received At Transit Point

I'd like to think that our goods are in the same transport, with one minute difference in the shipping time from Suzhou. But why hasn't mine arrived at Arnhem Hub, NL? I'd just be happy if I knew my iBook was out of China, with all the hassle everyone else is talking about.

doh, I didn;t know about this. How do you get it?

It depends on your credit card. My credit card I use with all big purchases is from my bank which is the Bank of Montreal. What they do is they double the manufacturers warranty, I get 60 day price protection so if the price goes down in a whole two months I get creditied the difference and if almost ANYTHING happens to it in like 90 days or something (stolen, run over) after I brought it it gets replaced. However I have never, ever paid interest on my credit card. So basiclly I'm getting al these services for free.

Like many others, My ibook arrived in Alaska and was scheduled to be delivered on the 4th. However my recent tracking onfo says this: "Aug 1, 2005 10:24 PM Arrived at FedEx location

LOS ANGELES, CA "

LA! This means I might get my ibook on tuesday!! Juiced!! (I live about 5 hours away from LA)

To gloat a bit my 1-gig ram stick is coming from crucial 2 days ahead of schedule.
Why? I live in Boise, Idaho-about 2 miles from crucial.com world headquarters. My departure scan, and destination arrival scan from UPS were about 30 minutes apart. Now if I could only close on that summer home in Shanghai... :cool: :cool:

It is called US Customs. FedEx can't guarantee when that will be completed. Anywhere within the US they can guarantee overnight delivery because customs isn't involved.

My iBook is still in China. :( But Sounds like you guys order on Tues. I ordered on Weds. So Maybe I will get mine on Friday but there is no way that is 2-3 shipping when it shipped last Friday.

Can anyone help me with the K+N tracker thing on apecode.com (the TNT one still isn't working for me)? The latest entry is:

02 aug 05 86 14 booking slot obtained CNSHA50 04 aug 05

So where is it? Also, is for the ETA it says '04 aug 05'. Does this mean it will arrive at my house on that date, or at the next leg of its journey?

i ordered my new ibook saturday afternoon and started reading here to see when i might expect it to arrive, and i found myself laughing at how impatient everyone was - i imagined you all sitting in front of the computer clicking refresh twice an hour and thought 'not me, no i can be more patient than that...'

but now that it's been a few days, i am right there with you! that's what i get for laughing - now i can't stop checking the order status just waiting for the status to change to shipped!

so here's the deal with mine:

12in ibook w/ 80G hard drive and 1G ram (hubby's suggestion, i just went with it), ipod mini w/engraving (education discount), and applecare for ibook.

my order has been processing since sunday, but yesterday morning the ibook was 'sent to manufacturing' for the upgrades, i imagine.

today, both the applecare and the ibook were changed to 'preparing shipment.'

this last time i checked the applecare status was 'shipped,' but it's via ups. just wondering if the applecare and the ibook were shipped separately for you all too (if you got applecare), or if this means my ibook might be shipped through ups too (instead of fedex).

interested in hearing what you all think, as it's clear all us impatient eager awaiters are sitting in front of one computer waiting for another one to arrive. :D

(the ipod's a gift for a birthday later in the month, so i'm not so worried about when it will arrive)

A lot of you are being critical of the delivery services that are shipping your ibook. Be grateful that they are that quick at least. If you had on the apple page 2-3 day shipping and its slower than that, it could very well be apple's fault in not getting it to Fed Ex quick enough. And because Fed Ex won't let you pick it up at their office, doesn't make them suck... A lot of shipping companies won't do that. Be patient, at least you are about to be using a new BTO ibook.

Mine did the exact same thing. Granted I'm not quite as close to L.A. as you, though I'm still in the Western U.S., this seems kind of odd.

I was like, what?!, delivered 8:53 AM? This is NY and it was in Alaska last night!

If you paid extra for shipping and are not getting it in the time that was stated, then call Apple. I would not put up with that either if it was guarenteed to be shipped in X number of days and it went past that number. But saying stuff like FedEx sucks cause I'm not getting it now is crazy. There are so many other factors that go into the shipping: when Apple got it to FedEx, what US customs is doing when your shipment arives in the states and how long they take to authorize it, weather at the airports, when it arrives to each area and when the truck that delivers in your areas go out. So instead of complaining about Fed Ex on some message board when your shipment is late and you paid extra, call Apple and I am sure they will glady refund your extra fee for faster shipping if it is indeed past the date that was guarenteed.

Did you call TNT or what, or does your tracking info show "31 heinä 2005 03:18 Suzhou Shipped From Originating Depot" as the last event? I thought this meant they've shipped it FROM China, correct me if I'm wrong. Or are we missing yet another point before the cargo leaves China?

I recieved mine yesterday morning, August 2nd, 9:00AM. A full day ahead of schedule. A lot of people who paid two day shipping got it Monday, yet I got the free shipping and got it a day later, i'm glad I didn't get the two day shipping. But yeh, what a relief, and i'm so hooked on this iBook because its my first mac. Who knows when i'll use my PC again for anything other than Battlefield 2. Apple IMO brings a very good product to the table, i'm impressed. Good luck to those who still haven't gotten your iBooks, who knows maybe you'll get yours a day or two earlier than estimated, its possible, just be patient, its definitely worth the wait, i've been waiting ever since I ordered on the 19th.

My iBook's estimated delivery date is still the 4th. However, it left Memphis early enough this afternoon to make it to me tomorrow morning even if they drove it. I 'm hopefull.

I hope they don't pull a UPS. On many occasions I've noticed that my package will arrive early in my local hub and it will sit there until it's scheduled delivery date. I can't tell you how many times I've driven half an hour out of town to the UPS facility so I could get my parts, rather than let them sit there for two or three days.

i guess ours got split up, th... mine says 'international release' in indy at 11:48 p.m. tuesday. hope it doesn't go to memphis from indy, i'd love if it went the two hours from indy to cincinnati

Ordered my ibook 1:30pm GMT yesterday
'Processing order' overnight
Just switched to 'Preparing Shipment'
Could anybody estimate delivery date in UK from their recent deliveries/experience?

(it does say on/before 9 Aug but I can't see it taking another week to despatch from where it is now- its past the BTO stage)

Wouldn't it be useful to have a widget with the delivery tracker/estimate on?
Put in your order number, and it brings up your current status.

Problem is that they get held up in the Netherlands.
Use the apecode delivery tracker, then the TNT one. I wish Apple would put it on their website.

Just got off the phone with Finland's TNT rep, and she said that currently my iBook is in Amsterdamn, and delivery would be on August 9th (next tuesday :D), but told me to phone monday morning about the timing of the delivery, and it might be possible to get it monday at the earliest (my bet's on tuesday with the weekend and everything). Apparently the online tracking service doesn't know *****, since the last event it shows is from sunday 31st, when it was shipped from suzhou.

So Tahko, no showing off with new Macs for next weekend. CRAP.

Did you call TNT or what, or does your tracking info show "31 heinä 2005 03:18 Suzhou Shipped From Originating Depot" as the last event? I thought this meant they've shipped it FROM China, correct me if I'm wrong. Or are we missing yet another point before the cargo leaves China?
Yes, I have exactly the same line. And I think it means they were shipped to Europe. Last status info before it will come to Finland should be Aarnheim or whatever that Dutch port was called again. Hopefully it'll be in Europe this evening or early tomorrow to get it in Friday. :(

I am damn impressed with Apple's delivery time. I ordered my 12" iBook BTO with a 60 gig hdd last Tuesday at about 5 p.m. I did not pay the extra $30 for expedited shipping.

Today, at 10 AM, Fedex tried to deliver both. Since I'm at work, I'll go to their depot tonight to pick them up. 5 business days is pretty damn good since originally it was 3-5 days to ship, then 8-10 to deliver.

Hmmm... I ordered mine last Tuesday with free shipping, and the estimated delivery is tomorrow at 10:30 MDT. The most recent activity on it was leaving Indianapolis at 2:07 this morning. If it was going to Memphis, it would be there by now, so it must be coming here (Boise, ID). At this point though it seems like it should have made it. Is this unusual? Anyone have any idea? Could I get a knock without tracking saying it's on the delivery vehicle?

Yes, I live in Warminster, PA, and yesterday morning it arrived in Philadelphia, (45 mins from me), then went to Fort Washington, PA (20 mins from me) and said on truck for delivery, and the next update said it went back to the facility in Philadelphia, which confused me, but a couple minutes later the truck shows up at my house, right after I signed for it, I checked my fedex tracking and it still said in facility in Philadelphia.

So it is possible to recieve it without it saying its on a delivery truck. Good luck though.

Do you get K+N tracking info or TNT only? I don't get K+N.

Personally I don't trust these online tracking services (at least not TNT's!), apparently they are not in sync with their own tracking information systems.

I wonder if the cargo comes first to Amsterdam (where my package was yesterday afternoon according to TNT's rep on the phone) and then it goes to Arnhem, coz TNT online tracking showed it was i Arnhem yesterday around 19 and left there. Seems odd, doesn't packages go on a lorry to UK? From Amsterdam? Somebody enlighten me.

After apparently doing nothing but sit in Eindhoven for two days, my iBook is registering with TNT as having arrived in Ireland. Hope they can get it to my office safely.

Last time I bought direct from Apple they managed to lose my iMac in 2003. I was getting anxious about why it was taking so long and when I enquired, Apple said that it had already been delivered to me – I had signed for some peripherals also in the order.

Then I got a call from the airport saying they had my computer and they faxed me an Irregularity Report but Apple said that they still couldn’t find it.

I eventually managed to get through to a Customer Service Manager – difficult to do as I was told they are “Not Customer Facing” and this individual undertook to find my computer – when I told him I knew exactly where it was – in the airport – and I wanted someone from Apple to get it from there to my office - he said it was most irregular that the airport should contact me and that the it would have to be moved through the correct logistical channels…

At this point I lost it…

Eventually, later that afternoon, his PA walked into my office with my new iMac, she had driven to the airport herself and collected it.

My business partner still complained that if I hadn’t pursued the matter I would still be waiting for my iMac and wanted recompense for the inconvenience and when she put it to Mr Customer Service Manager, he asked what was she thinking of, I had been thinking a free t-shirt or a mouse mat but I then said “What about a free iPod?” and he just answered “What would you like engraved on it – within reason!”.

Complained to TNT as well as got a nice letter of apology and a box of chocolates!

Well I ordered almost the same except an 80gig HD last week. It took 8 days for it to arrive. Ordered it last Wed. Shipped last Friday (from China). Arrive yesterday. All BTOs seem to come directly from China so I doubt you would see it faster than 6 days.

yep, I wanted to free some space (actually the operation gave me almost 5 gigs) AND I tend to play with things to learn. I also like to customize everything. So I took the reinstall route, although this sweety is unix and I could have removed those manually as well.

To think I went through all that anguish waiting for the update then waiting for the computer...

Well, I guess I can't complain too much as I'm typing this on the best, most beautiful computer ever conceived of.

Just curious, does anyone know how long my pretty little iBook will have to sit in Arnhem before it can begin the final leg of its journey to me (in the UK)? And once it starts coming on its way from Arnhem, how long will it take to get to Manchester's TNT depot? Just wondering if anyone has any experience or knowledge...

WOOOOHOOOOO!

Today, August 6th, I ordered my 12" iBook with BTO Option of 80 GB HD.
I also got the new 20GB iPod and plan to sell my older iPod 20GB, this way I will spend no money and get a new, color iPod.

I was emailed that the iBook will be shipped:


On or Before:
8/11/05

And the iPod will be shipped:

On or Before
8/08/05


WOOOOOOOOT!!! I FINALLY BOUGHT IT!

I didn't order an iBook but I did BTO a 15" powerbook. I ordered it on Tuesday of this past week and it shipped on Friday. The FedEx tracking says it will be delivered by Tuesday by 10:30 AM to Indianapolis. It shows it as still being in China today so I will be very surprised if it makes it to me in time... we shall see.

Been reading through this thread and wondered whether anyone could give me any advice as to how to track my order...

I placed my order on the 30th of July, and about 2 days later it changed status to 'shipped' but didn't display a tracking number until I dug around on the apple site and found a different link to the order status page which did provide me with one although they don't seem to be in the right format for any of the carriers... i've tried putting all of them in the various tracking pages to no avail. Anyone been in this situation?

Cheers!

You should have received an email from apple with a number starting '08'
Put this number (I think there are 10 digits)
in to this site:

http://www.apecode.com/appletrack/

Can sometimes take a while to start tracking the job - but it does store your number in there - bookmark it and keep going back every 2 minutes, as I am waiting for my new ibook!!

Best of luck :D

Managed to retrieve the reference number from apple over the phone, and the apecode tracker is showing the following:

Last time it was scanned seems to be 3rd of August, TNT doesn't seem to have it on file yet... so frustrating! And it's coming to Edinburgh so I've no idea why it's in Cork... Also the tracking page only shows the part number of one of the three items i've ordered, which is strange.

Dammit. I paid for 2 day shipping of a BTO 12" ibook., ordered Friday the 4th. FedEx said that it was "At local facility Shanghai on Tueday at 11:30 PM. It sat there for 47 hours; then this morning (10:12 Pm Shanghai time; 10:12 AM here on the east coast of the US) it changed to "Picked up-- SHIPMENT EXCEPTION-- Package received after FedEx cutoff." How could it have been received after the FedEx cutoff when it sat there from Tuesday 11:30 PM until Thursday at 10:12 PM? Neither Apple nor Fedex can give me an explanation on the phone; FedEx now says I can expect it next Tuesday. Apple says they'll credit me the $18 for the express shipping. This sucks. :mad:

I ordered my ibook last tuesday and received it today, thursday (9days later)
People are getting confused with the apetrack ETA shifting 2 days earlier than the Apple ETA. This seems to be the ETA when the local carrier receives the package (and the numbered link on the left switches to tracking instead of the not found message).

In my case the Apple estimate was spot on.

Got my ibook and it is really sweet.
Ran it side by side tonight with my sisters 14" 1.2ghz - seem faster, but nothing installed yet. Blitzes her on battery life though!
Oh and she's p*ssed about not having ripples on dashboard.

Love the 2 button scrolling - really does work. Can be installed on older ibooks though - shareware.

It was in Anchorage on the 11th (Thursday), and "in transit on Friday-Sat Sunday; finally delivered on the 15th. All of this was with "two day shipping." Apparently that will be refunded by Apple.

My iBook is on its way. The silly thing is i can track it on TNT, but not on Kuehne & Nagel. K&N gives me "Error: Delivery Note "80xxxxxxxx" is unknown! (0104)".

Is K&N not used anymore? Do they use TNT all the way or am i doing something wrong?

I'm having the same trouble, get the same Error message on the K+N Apecode thing. Maybe it takes a wee while before K+N show tracking data, I only ordered mine in the evening of Friday 26.

TNT on the other hand say:

27 Aug 2005 22:08 Suzhou Shipped From Originating Depot
27 Aug 2005 12:06 Suzhou Consignment Received At Transit Point

It baffles me as to how TNT know more about the shipment than K+N, when TNT only do the final part of the delivery.

I also ordered a Wireless mouse seperate from the iBook. That isn't even showing up on TNT. Ahhhhh, if only these trackers didn't exist they just get you all hopeful and paranoid etc.

I'm just trying to guesstimate the delivery date as Apple's estimate of 6-7days seems a bit steep. :(

Do you mind posting when your's finally arrives???

Cheers

Unfortunately it isn't, I got shipping notification on Friday 19th August on an order placed on the 11th. According to the tracking info it should arrive today. I agree that Apple should be able to manage a faster turnaround but doesn't seem that they can!

Arrrrggggghhhhhhh!!!!!! So close yet so far. I've just discovered that TNT have delivered my stuff to the wrong address, that's my iBook and my Mac Mini. Not a happy bunny! :(

Someone really doesn't want me to switch.

i recieved my ibook a couple of weeks ago and the screen was broke, i found that they officially use the same screen for both the ibook and pbook 12" on the applecare service details there was replce lcd panel service description and it used part # 646-0236 DISPLAY 12.1 XGA, PB, Samsung which is kind of interesting i know it is not the most relevant, but some people just ache for the little details and i thought this info would be helpful

Boo - I checked the TNT website this morning and it said my iBook is 'out for delivery'. I phoned them up and the woman on the phone said it had been loaded onto a vehicle this morning that was currently out, but then said that my ETA is Monday so I won't get it before then.

On Monday it will be exactly 2 weeks since I ordered it!!! (12 inch, with 60 Gb hard drive)

Both my ipod and ibook (only spent 1 day in china after shipping) should be here on monday (19th) :D
odd thing is from alaska they sent my ibook to memphis? I'd think fed-ex would be smarter to kow calgary is closer to alaska than tenn. is to calgary...
Ipod made it to canada though... ground shipping from vancouver though... blah

They don't do a whole lot of flights between two cities where one of them isn't Memphis, hence the "detour" down South.

*UPDATE*

It shipped out of Shanghai and went to Anchorage today.

4:16 PM
Arrived at FedEx location

ANCHORAGE, AK

4:15 PM

Departed FedEx location

ANCHORAGE, AK

What exactly does this mean? So it departed anchorage BEFORE it arrived? or did it depart and they just proccessed the arrival scan AFTER departure?

Fedex. Not the brightest. TRUST ME. >.<

Bought an iPod from Onizuka, was supposed to land on Saturday (He paid for 3 day air shipping since hes a cool guy) and they said it was delivered on Saturday at 12:16 PM. Funny thing is, I get home, no iPod. Freak out, fall asleep from freaking out, wake up to my brother handing me a Fedex box, open it up, and theres my iPod. >.<'

Just entered into my second round of waiting for an ibook.
The first one I got had bad scrambled memory - DOA.
So instead of shipping me out a new one straight away Apple gave me a refund and let me order again - just so I can watch over the delivery again. Yippee.

One tip though, it took me 2 weeks to work out that it was the memory that was bad (lots of crashes and kernel panics). This left me just outside the DOA '14 day limit' . After A LOT of explaining to aftersales that the memory was at faulty on delivery ie. you've supplied me with faulty goods, I got a refund. My tip is the FIRST thing you do with ANY new machine is run the hardware test disc on the machine (its now a partition on the software install disc, instructions explain all). Machines like this simply shouldn't get through quality control. One bad apple in the barrel I suppose.
