FedUp – updated

Every time I order something from Amazon I cringe when I am notified it’s shipping FedEx.  Their tracking is horrendous, and never makes sense or even go in order.  The packages seem to get misplaced for a few days.  To top it off, they use the USPS for final delivery which means the tracking ends when they turn it over to the Post Office.  But even then it’s not guaranteed it won’t suddenly be back at FedEx.  For example, here is an order.   Notice the last update has it in Clinton PA, which is about 100 miles away in the Pittsburgh area, on the 29th.  But it was already in Clinton on the 23rd, then in Zelionople, then Franklin (which is my normal local distribution location if FedEx was delivering), then Pleasantville (it actually says in transit to meaning the USPS never touched it yet) at my Post Office on the 26th.  But, back to Clinton on the 29th.  What?  Why did it go back to the beginning?  Now it’s another 4 days predicted to get back to Pleasantville.  Also, I never know for sure where it is.  It could arrive today even if tracking says it’s in Clinton.  And this type of thing happens all the time with FedEx.  I wish I could tell Amazon to use UPS.  Or even the Post Office.  They don’t do too bad when they aren’t working with FedEx.

Update May 1st:

I ordered two items on April 12th.  The one above, and one shipped from Thailand.  Guess what?   The one from Thailand got here before the one above.  Both were listed as shipped on April 13th.  The Thailand package arrived today.  The one originating 200 miles away in Breinigsville, PA still hasn’t arrived.
