    Ordered a Macbook Pro last week and was wondering why I have 2 departure scans from China in the UPS tracking info? Note: I only ordered one item so am only expecting one delivery, or is my beautiful new MBP being delivered to he UK in pieces? :eek:

    I would assume that it would be local time and China is a fair bit ahead of us in time zones so it would be the 5th of July there.

    As for the question, I believe that one of them would be an arrival scan.

    Uh, clearly states all times are local...and as it IS July 5 in China right now (that pesky international date line), probably just a duplicate posing. Or, my lucky friend, you are about to get TWO MacBook Pro's. :cool:

    shouldn't the first be an arrival scan? maybe just scanned wrong. Otherwise it may not have actually made it out on the 3rd, and thus needed another departure scan. I've seen this a few times with fedex/ups with duplicate arrival/departure scans

    you are almost definitely not getting two mbp's lol

    it mya just be that it was scanned twice while going through processing in China. dont worry about it. just worry about the location, and not necessarily the message. at least, that's what experience with getting Apple products from China tells me...;)

    maybe it got left behind the first time?

    the local time thing isn't always right. for example when i ordered my MBP, it left from sacramento and i'm in san diego. local time was 5am, time departed was 6am and time where the delivery was 4am.

    Mine had two of them as well. Mine also was sent to TN, then to AZ, then back to TN, then to AZ again. (I'm assuming it was just glitches with the scans)

    In other words, the tracking isn't perfect. It's more for piece-of-mind than anything else. Your computer will arrive just fine.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. Earlier this year when I was tracking a package via UPS, it suddenly showed up as "natural disaster" (clearly WTF). Ended up getting it 4 days later. :) Which is now I pronounce UPS as "oops".

    So... chill.

    The international date line is the beginning and ending of a single day. So it couldn't possibly be the difference between the 3rd and the 5th (which is at minimum more than a single 24 hour day).

    If you get two mac pros, you have an offer of $500 here! :D

    Yes it could, if the machine just sat in whatever warehouse for a day before it was scanned again.

    Hahah yeah, but I think he was implying that it was the same time, just showing it in local china time and local UK time. Maybe not. :confused:

    its simple,

    paperwork

    items are scanned when needed, they can show multiple imports or departures because it is scanned when the paperwork is processor or put on a truck,

    ie : item scanned and put on truck, re-scanned then moved to another truck.

    happens all the time and its normal.

    by the way. apple products sent from china need to ALL clear customs before they are released, which is normal practice coming from china.
