    Hi I ordered my Mac a few days ago, and according to the UPS tracking information, it is supposed to be here by this afternoon.
    However, tracking shows that it hasn't moved a single bit from Shanghai since Jan 28.
    Has anyone gone through anything similar?

    More than half of the US has been experiencing bad weather. UPS has halted delivery to the entire state of Georgia and much of the Southeast. You'll probably be waiting a while longer as they work to clear the backlog.

    Could be stuck in customs (that happens from time to time), and as mentioned by saturnotaku, weather related issues could have also caused back ups for deliveries.

    There's nothing you can do until it misses the estimated date, then you can call, but I suspect any answer will be along the lines that it will arrive when it arrives, i.e., we don't have any specific info

    If it is still in Shanghai than you are out of luck. The whole of China is shut down right now for Chinese New Year (most people are back at work on Feb 7). In addition to that I know that today many (passenger) flights out of Shanghai are canceled or delayed. You'll have to be patient

    If UPS still says it will be there by this afternoon I think you still have a chance. I've noticed with previous UPS shipments from Apple that came from China that it will say its in China until the last moment and then all of a sudden a flurry of activity is added to my tracking details and the item has been delivered on time.

    Good Luck!

    Perspective. Deliveries all over are delayed. There is nothing you can do about it short of just waiting. I got an e-mail from Amazon about something I need by Saturday being delayed. I ordered it in enough time but you know what? my first thought was "as long as people are safe". It was early in the morning and I admit, I may be overly nice about it, but frankly, I don't need my crap so bad that I would want to hear about a driver getting hurt while rushing to deliver my stuff.
