I’m not normally an impatient person, but when it comes to my iPad all bets are off. This is my tracking info. It was picked up at the factory in China on the evening of July 8th. Within thirty-six hours it had made its way from Shenzhen, China to Hong Kong, on to Anchorage, Alaska, from there to Memphis, Tennessee and then onto Mississauga, Ontario. What efficiency! Okay, there’s an international dateline in there somewhere, but still, I’m impressed with both the complexity and the speed of the shipping. The paperwork for passage through Canada Customs had even arrived a day earlier in anticipation.

But now it’s up to the brokerage firm and Canada Customs.

Clearance in progress.

Two days later: clearance in progress.

Fourteen hours later: still showing clearance in progress.

I guess I should be catching up on spring cleaning or something this week. Not clicking “refresh” on my FedEx tracking information page.

    Heh heh…we do this too. Because we live in the boonies, there's no such thing as “overnight”, and sometimes “next day” can take almost a week, depending on when the item was shipped and if it snows, etc.

    Oh dear. I just ordered one myself for hubby – its a surprise. I ordered it on July 11 and it says it won't be shipping until the 26th. I couldn't understand what the delay was for…I didn't realize it was coming from China!!!
