    Ive been tracking my new MB Pro and it has been stuck at "Departed Fedex Location" from Memphis. It has been like this for more than 36hrs and I would think it would have gotten to the next destination by now?

    Anyone currently have this problem or have had it in the past?

    May 2, 2010 6:24 AM Departed FedEx location MEMPHIS, TN
    May 1, 2010 4:07 AM In transit MEMPHIS, TN
    May 1, 2010 1:13 AM Arrived at FedEx location MEMPHIS, TN

    Sometimes tracking does work and then FedEx knocks on your door at 7AM with your new computer; at that point you don't know if you should be happy your computer arrived or cry because you were awoken from much needed sleep and you can't fall asleep again.

    I know some parts of TN had REAL bad weather over the weekend, including tornados. Could be weather related. Just speculation on my part that it could have impacted flights.

    **Edit to add: I see from your name you're from Cincinnati. I'm in Northern KY. You know that storm we had Sunday morning while everyone was trying to run the marathon? That was in TN all weekend and much stronger from what I understand.**

    I had thought originally the weather might be slowing it down. They had something on the site saying MEM was delayed. Who knows..

    Does that actually happen occasionally? Does fedex tracking work and then just stop like that? I talked to fedex and they jus said that they could only see what I see online

    My package has been stuck in Memphis since sunday apparently. And it's an international one.

    Fedex told me as well, that they see what I see.

    I'm getting worried here considering it's supposed to be delivered here in Norway today. If it's still in Memphis that never going to happen.

    Called Fedex locally today and they claim it's still in Memphis... Getting FedUp here.

    This is correct.

    I had an overnight package due to be delivered yesterday morning. As of yesterday afternoon it no longer shows an estimated delivery date. It still doesn't.

    When you go to the FedEx Tracking page, you'll see a tiny notice at the top of the page in red. It reads:
    Severe flooding in Tennessee may cause some service delays and disruptions. Learn more "

    Clicking on 'Learn more' you'll see this:

    Flooding in Tennessee
    Service Update

    Customers should expect delays using FedEx Express® service to the Nashville area, including Clarksville, because of severe flooding. There may also be service delays in Millington and Dyersburg in West Tennessee. We are committed to providing service to the best of our ability in areas that can be safely accessed, and we will continue to monitor the situation. Depending on local conditions, pickups and deliveries may be affected.

    Shipping to affected areas?
    To help avoid delays, we encourage you to contact your recipients to verify if their location is accepting shipments. Delivery will be attempted when it is safe to do so.

    Continue to check the status of your shipments on before going to any staffed FedEx location in affected areas. You can also contact FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339. ​

    I phoned them yesterday afternoon and was told it would arrive this morning. But because the online tracking is still not showing my estimated delivery date, I just phoned again. The representative confirmed it was due to the flooding in Memphis and that my package was currently waiting for a flight out. I guess the delay is at the airport waiting to leave Memphis. He told me that it's possible my package might not come this morning either. They can't be sure until they can get their flight out but he said to keep watching the online tracking as it will be updated their when it's on it's way.

    My package was international also.

    I hope they can get their flights out soon.

    Apparantly no one knows where that iPad went... They are trying to trace it, which might take up to 14 days. Can´t say I´m impressed with this shipping company. I thought their only job was to figure out how to get packages from A to B...

    I'm having the same issue! My package has been in Tennessee since the 6th! But I ordered a package on Sunday night that's being shipped via UPS and it will be delivered tomorrow. They went through Tennessee also. I so wished my other package was shipped via UPS. FedEx is crap! They need to change location of their hub. This always happens with their packages.
