So I live in Memphis TN and one of my iPhone's journey started in mt Juliet tn then continued onto Nashville.

I figured it would got straight from Nashville to Memphis. (Like a three hour drive.) instead it's gone all the way to Louisville. I understand this is their hub but what a waste of fuel.

Any one else see similar routing?

Mount Juliet to Louisville. Arrived at 8:44pm on the 17th. Same as yours?

I have been tracking for 3 or 4 days now. It has always been in Mount Juliet til this point.

Maybe since it is Next Day Air, they UPS uses Louisville as a main air transfer hub?

Louisville is a main hub for the region I'm sure. I'm near Indianapolis and my 6 is coming out of Louisville via 2-day air.

I've had worse. I'm in Sacramento, and had my 3G go from PANC to KSDF, even though UPS has a west coast hub at KONT.

So mine went clear across the country when it could have gone to Ontario and then an hour flight north.

Most everything I've ever ordered that is shipped UPS will go through Louisville at some point. Same thing for things shipped FedEx going through Memphis a lot of the time.

Not an iPhone shipment, but I've had probably one of the strangest routes on something I shipped through good ole USPS. I was shipping a textbook I sold online from one Chicago suburb to another Chicago suburb. The book went from Chicago to Pittsburgh and back to Chicago before reaching its final destination.

Fast forward to 2020, ordered AirPods Pro, and went Hong Kong - Taiwan - Alaska - Kentucky, and back to Hong Kong, while the destination was Princeton, NJ. It’s Tuesday evening, and it says that it will reach by Thursday, though seems unlikely at this rate.
