    26 Oct 2005 13:28 Shanghai Consignment Received At Transit Point

    I don't use TNT but DHL instead. There was once the package I sent has been delivered to my customer's door but the tracking status on its website was still at the transit point. At times, it may not update automatically (/accurately).

    I may not be the right person to tell you when. Have you tried calling them personally? Sometimes gentle pestering may help. ;)

    Well, i think its just tnt's tacking which are broken... My imac so far:
    Code:
    27 okt 2005 	12:00 	Pudong International Airport 	Potential Linehaul Delay Due To Technical Problems 
    26 okt 2005 	10:34 	Shanghai 	Shipped From Originating Depot 
    25 okt 2005 	12:06 	Shanghai 	Consignment Received At Transit Point 
    
    Ive head of others, who had this problem and suddenly the packet arrived, with the tracking showing it still be in shanghai...

    On the Apple Order Status, it says My PowerMac has been Shipped by TNT UK on the 28th Oct, but i can't find out any more details atall...

    Non of the numbers that the Apple Order Status page provide are a valid 'Consignment numbers' on the tnt.co.uk order tracker.

    Anyone else know whats going on? I'm abit worried that i can't find out whats going on, or am i doing somthing wrong?

    Waiting on a new imac too. TNT order tracking says its still delayed at Pudong airport. I called TNT and they said it was scheduled for delivery in the UK for Friday, but this may change due to delays - no more info at the moment though... :rolleyes:
