Hi!

Did anyone get a valid tracking number for Hermes?
Apple said, they shipped the iPad yesterday, but I can't find it on the Hermes tracking system...

Thanks.

Mine doesn't work on the Hermes site, either.

Will only start getting annoyed if no arrival by tomorrow pm.

Mine just showed up at Hermes. But only saying, that they received the shipment info...

Still nothing happening for me.

I'm using the 10-digit Spediteur-Referenz-Nummer but it comes up as not found...

What Hermes URL are you using?

The 10-digit number is useless. I ordered the iPad and a cover and I think they made to parcels out of it. Therefore the button "Sendungsverfolgung" acts like a menu showing two links. The numbers in these links are the Hermes tracking numbers. They have 14 digits starting with 71.

(maybe we can switch to german...?)

(mein deutsch ist sehr schlecht!)

My Sendungsverfolgung link takes me to a pretty basic page with an array of delivery-related details (including the aforementioned 10-digit code). All of the numbers on the page are 10-digits and none starts with 71.

Not to worry, I'm sure it will all work out fine. Otherwise meine Frau will have words with Herr Hermes... :D

Sometimes it works if you put zeros in front of the number, to fill it up to 14 digits. Like: 0000xxxxxxxxxx
Worth a try.

The correct number has magically appeared in my order's Sendungsverfolgung next to Spediteur-Referenz-Nummer.

I've put it into my Hermes iPhone app, which will be on constant refresh tomorrow... :)
