(Not so) SmartPost…

Worst delivery and tracking system, ever…

Smartpost is a program where shipments are picked up by FedEx and routed to the nearest large USPS sorting hub to the delivery address and then the USPS carries the package to the delivery address. Their ability (or lack thereof) to track your packages is amazingly deplorable, even the USPS tracking/delivery confirmation system, which is next to useless, is better than Smartpost.

Current (as of 1:42 PM 04/22/2010) shipping information:

Ship date Apr 16, 2010
Estimated delivery Apr 24, 2010

Apr 16, 2010 3:01 AM Shipment information sent to FedEx
Apr 21, 2010 6:59 PM Arrived at FedEx location ORLANDO, FL

That’s right… The package that just arrived (did I mention I got it this afternoon?) is still in Orlando and won’t be delivered until Saturday.

Hawk (I wonder if I’ll get two…)
