Fedex shipping, going everywhere

so I bought some stuff from EdGI from Phillipines a while ago and he shipped it to me via Fedex, and from the tracking here is what I see

Dec 7, 2008 5:52 AM MEMPHIS, TN/Arrived at FedEx location
Dec 6, 2008 9:13 PM ANCHORAGE, AK/Departed FedEx location
11:41 AM ANCHORAGE, AK/Arrived at FedEx location6:09 AM
RICHMOND, BC/In transit
6:09 AM RICHMOND, BC/Clearance in progress
6:09 AM RICHMOND, BC/Clearance delay
3:32 PM PARANAQUE PH/In transit
12:05 AM PARANAQUE PH/In transit
Dec 5, 2008 10:58 PM PARANAQUE PH/At local FedEx facility

So bottom line, it came straight from Phillipines to Richmond, BC customs clearing centre(which is the city beside vancouver), and without further details, flew all the way to Alaska and then to Memphis, Tennesee, US.

So I'm really going "wtf?" over this right now, but I've seen similar transit activity with UPS tracking, but I can not figure out why courier would do this(Meaning go all over north america).

Anyone have an explanation? Thanks

For one, the tracking on the websites is based on predictions, not real time scans. You have to have the inside # to a supervisor who can dig that up for you.

For two, when the humans that unload the aircan and sort the freight they can toss something mean for Richmond into the Bugtussle pile. That means it travels all the way to the wrong spot and then hopefully is caught and bounced back.

It may be that way... but I'd hope they had a bit of a better system then just predictions. For a while my UNC order said it was in Mississauga (directly from HK) but with some sort of problem... next day it's in the states doing some weird things (not nearly as bad as yours, mine actually seems to be going toward me)... so far it's settled as the following:

MOUNT HOPE,
ON, CA 07/12/2008 17:31 ARRIVAL SCAN
LOUISVILLE,
KY, US 07/12/2008 16:09 DEPARTURE SCAN
07/12/2008 8:35 ARRIVAL SCAN
ANCHORAGE,
AK, US 06/12/2008 23:15 DEPARTURE SCAN
06/12/2008 20:02 ARRIVAL SCAN
CHEK LAP KOK,
HK 07/12/2008 4:07 DEPARTURE SCAN
CHEK LAP KOK,
HK 05/12/2008 22:03 HUB SCAN
KOWLOON BAY,
HK 05/12/2008 17:28 PICKUP SCAN
HK 06/12/2008 5:59 BILLING INFORMATION RECEIVED

At least it'll be here soon yay~~

Dude, they're probably not that retarded and your package isn't ACTUALLY doing that.

Perhaps its just the holiday season I ordered mags from the states

And right when it posted that it was in customs, the package is actually in my mailbox. And it "stayed" in customs for 4 days until it finally switched into saying it arrived at destination even though its been sitting in my room the whole time.
