Parcel tracking is good…

…but it could be implemented a little better sometimes.

Mi. 21:23: E-mail with dispatch confirmation of a shop (emphasis mine):

Immediately after the order is placed, you have the possibility to track the shipment’s status online.


Important notice!

It may be that your package number is known to the system only up to two days after dispatch handover and thus only then its course can be tracked.

Strictly speaking, you might even say that this is not really contradictory. It certainly isn’t practical, though.

The rest is rather banal:

I checked on Thu at about 19:00: no status. Could the package arrive today, then? Or can’t it? No. And also Thu ca. 18:00: no status. Only Thu ca. 22:00: status from Mi. 20:35: “Shipment handled in dispatch center” (everything in my translation, by the way).

Fri ca. 10:00: status from Fri 4:45: “The shipment has gone on tour.” (Only this last status was shown.)

Fri ca. 13:00: status from Fri 10:15: “The shipment has gone on tour.” By the way, where can you buy tickets for the tour? Who’s the supporting act? :P

Fri ca. 14:30: package arrived.

Others are a little more extensive… but alright, as long as the products arrive safe and reasonably fast, it’s fine with me. And when I find topics to write about that are more interesting than this, it’s even finer with me.
