Ghost Package January 5, 2006

Posted by samwyse in Uncategorized.

This is interesting. I sent a package (part return) to Dell via DHL. The tracking number is 18923687624. If you go to their tracking page and enter that number, you’ll see that it is “With delivery courier” with “Est. Delivery Date: 1/3/2006”. I tried calling DHL on the 4th, and was told that since they get so many packages, things sometimes get backed up at Dell. Well, now it’s the morning of the 5th, and it’s still apparently on a truck somewhere.

Of course, what I really think happened is that it forgot to get scanned when it was delivered. Still, I wonder how long it will remain in this state before someone notices.

Update:  On January 6th, the package tracker finally started showing that my package had arrived on the 3rd.  I find it interesting that it took three days to get that information into the system.
