    Hi folks,

    Trying to make sense of order tracking. My tracking log shows as follows:

    22 feb 05 30 10 departed direct Apple Shanghai 23 feb 05
    22 feb 05 40 69 accept scanned at EDC KN Luxemburg 25 feb 05
    22 feb 05 40 60 Arrived at EDC KN Luxemburg 23 feb 05
    22 feb 05 86 14 booking slot obtained KN Luxemburg
    19 feb 05 32 05 Flight Booked Kuehne & Nagel Shanghai
    18 feb 05 30 60 departed from product source Kuehne & Nagel Shanghai
    18 feb 05 05 00 boxes scanned Kuehne & Nagel Shanghai
    18 feb 05 30 64 Departed from source Apple Shanghai
    18 feb 05 00 05 Data received from supplier Apple Shanghai

    Cab't work out what the second column is. The 4th entry in the second column is a higher number so is it the most recent entry?

    Anyone able to share experiences of time from this stage to actual receipt in UK?

    Ignore all that crap, it will turn up either really delayed or as in my experience, before i get the email which says its shipped

    Now is the time to start checking TNT constantly - If my experience is anything to go by - one it hits luxemburg / holland you normally can expect to have the orange TNT van arrive next working day - 2nd day max - Enjoy

    Your order is nearly with TNT. Once it reaches TNT, the following line will appear on your tracking :

    22 feb 05 90 75 truck arrived at final destination Apple Shanghai 21 feb 05

    This is when you can safely assume its on its way for delivery, although in my experience the TNT page starts showing tracking information before this line appears.... so keep refreshing, it'll show up soon!

    Thanks for the info folks.

    To update the situ:
    Order now appears on TNT site (got to this via the apple tracking website).

    It passed through the arnhem hub at 15:27. Called TNT to check on delivery and a very helpful lady explained it would probably arrive at my nearest depot tomorrow and come out for delivery on Monday. However she has given me the depot number to call and see if I can pick up the delivery myself on Friday night/Saturday am. Heres hoping!!!
