A Bit Suspicious


Recommended Posts

It's kinda peculiar that I have had 2 packages in recent history both get to our main hub only to fall victim to the ever dreaded USPS running late and delivery date unknown.

Now what makes it a bit suspicious is the fact that I had 2 packages arrive at the hub on the same day but only 1 package is now late.

Both times I have had this coincidence happen was with bullet orders from the manufacturer-now I know what your thinking-just large heavy orders-nope only 500 bullets per order.

Just seems a little off-and I am not fond of the just a coincidence theory.🤔

I just received a N-vision 35mm NOX. They put in a pelican case and put the pelican case in a cardboard box. Guess what's all over the box. 

N-vision 

Nightvision equipment. 

A reticle 

All the stuff that says "Take me".

The USPS distribution center in Memphis is a mess. I've had packages run perfectly on schedule from the shipper only to arrive in Memphis and suddenly disappear for a week or more. I've also had packages arrive in Memphis only to be shipped off again to some totally unrelated city. Calling this place incompetent would be a complement. 💩

 Shipped some magazines to a TGO member in Nashville, I live near Memphis. I paid for 2 day delivery. The box went to Atlanta and tracing said out for delivery. It took 6 days to get to Nashville. If you ship USPS overnight it is either carried by FedEx or UPS.  I'm retired FedEx so from now on, you guessed it!

Deerslayer just noticed "your" distress flag. This country is indeed in distress. I was putting up a new Christian flag under our American flag and I asked the pastor if I could invert it, he chuckled and said better not, but we are under distress.

P.S. be thankful it isn't international shipping.

There are no shortage of tales on the Internet of USPS Memphis/Southhaven issues.  Based on how the post office is run and the general work ethic there, it’s the perfect storm of inefficiency.

I’ve noticed that the USPS does a fabulous job for me....as long as a package doesn’t go through that hub. If it does, you can bet it will be as well traveled as Hank Snow once it finally reaches it’s destination. I’ve seen tracking lists pages long.

Just for reference if you have to deal with an International shipment, DHL is awesome based on my past experiences.    My latest shipment through them was from Estonia and I got it either 3 or 4 days (back last year so I don't remember for sure).     The speed at which it was traveling across Europe prior to getting on a plane was impressive.     The shipping charge was around $23 USD.

Maybe for international shipping they're good. About 10 years ago I bought a rifle from a guy in St. Louis. He shipped it DHL. It took a week for it to get to me traveling by way of Waco, TX. 🙄

I use anybody else.

I often order from a company in OH.  The Toledo* distro center is terrible at holding my stuff for a week with no updates and then all of a sudden it leaves that black hole and I get normal updates and movement.

Yes, I was specifically referencing international shipping for DHL.       I believe they are the preferred shipper for most European countries from what I've seen.     They are based out of Germany.

This is not a new problem for the Memphis post office Hub. As best I can tell it was going on long before Covid became their excuse. Every time I had to send baits to Texas I used UPS.

This isn't just a Memphis hub problem.  This has been happening everywhere in the US.  This is the tracking info from a recent purchase.

 

June 4 - Arrived at USPS Regional Origin Facility - Santa Barbara, CA

June 10 - Arrived at USPS Regional Facility - Anchorage, AK

June 11 - Departed USPS Regional Facility - Anchorage, AK

June 14 - Delivered In/At Mailbox - Memphis, TN
