    Because I'm trying to figure out why the hell my package, shipped 2nd day air and scheduled for delivery tomorrow, from Boston to St. Louis, went from Memphis down to Mobile.

    Boston to Memphis makes complete sense to me, as Memphis is on the way. But I'm trying to figure out if it was supposed to go 400 miles in the complete opposite direction

    Nope. There's a FedEx ground distribution center there, but (in theory) stuff should only arrive there if its destination is somewhere in the Mobile (South Alabama) area.

    Hmm....then the tracking must be screwed up. It arrived in Mobile. But tracking doesn't say it left Mobile. Then it suddenly showed up at my local facility a few hours ago and is out for delivery. I don't know how they run things over there, but as long as I get it, I don't care

    :D:p actually this is not entirely correct. Brookly fields is one of the main hubs for Fed Ex located in Mobile, AL. It could have switched at a hub in Mobile at the airport. It is possible to go from Memphis to Mobile and back in under 6 hours. The Fed Ex Ground hub located in Mobile is the actual location for the office complex for Federal Express and is also a hub for FedEx Ground. They are 2 seperate entities operating out of the same space :eek: .

    Is it just me, or has tracking gone downhill in the last year or two? Tracking packages used to be so cool to me, but now it seems, no matter which company, that the tracking is usually so off/behind as to render it next to useless.

    only company that i've ever had successful and reliable tracking with is UPS. Fedex i usually have issues same with USPS. and i stay far away from DHL.
