Longest Path – Amazon Shipment Tracking for UPS Ground

Posted by silentarchimedes on July 28, 2008

Don’t you love the shipment tracking that UPS, USPS and other delivery companies have now? Watching your package coming closer to your residence has this exciting feel to it. However, it is also sometimes very slow as it starts from across the country and makes its way to you. Well, as I am waiting for my new package to arrive from Amazon, it has been gut-wrenching to see it stop at the most number of locations I have ever seen! It’s almost as if it’s doing the sightseeing tour! Below is the path my package has traveled since it left Amazon. It is finally in its destination post office.

Has anyone ever had a longer path? My total number of post offices stopped is 9! I dare you to beat that!

  1. I’m waiting on my shipment at the moment. The longest one was a UPS order from Nike in China. Instead of going across Europe, it went to Japan, across America where it sat for 2 days, then over to the UK where it stopped at 3 other locations.

    I currently have a NewEgg shipment that departed from New Jersey, went all the way to Minneapolis, back through Chicago, Indiana, and Ohio, before being routed to Windsor Canada where its sat for the last five days. It’s now being prepped for what looks like a trip BACK across the border. I live in Nova Scotia Canada,

    Average Trip from NJ through Quebec to Nova Scotia – 1,905 km

    Estimated Trip Distance – 5,284.8 km

    I can’t help but wonder how logistically this makes sense, unless NewEgg only ships directly to Montreal (as they have done before) out of New Jersey once in a blue moon.

  3. Interesting write-up! I used to be just considering relating to this
    the other working day and that i was even googling “christian bale workout.” Great minds think alike haha.

    you get two bottles off 400mg capsules, with 60 inside the bottle, less expensive than ordering on-line, or wellness meals retailers.
