FEDEX Delays - Almost 2 Weeks and no package!!

Are you guys experiencing delays with FEDEX? I have an order that includes an EOTech optic that was shipped Feb 15, and in Memphis Feb 17, and then no status after that. The FEDEX web site advises "Prolonged severe weather across the U.S. may cause delays including the ability to pick up and deliver in certain cities". You think the Post Office is bad? Don't expect better from FEDEX.

Wonder if Biden put out an executive order to freeze all firearms parts and optics shipments?

A friend waited 3 weeks for a fedex package going to Solomons. It actually made it to the local depot only to be sent to Indiana and there it sat for 13 days. It then was routed back to Md .... Via Houston Texas.. took 22 days . Shipment originated in Ohio. Unbelievable

I have a package shipped from Ohio. It transited through Halethorpe, ostensibly on its way to delivery in Arnold. However it got routed to New Castle, DE where it has been parked since February 16th. Cabela's is expediting a replacement to me. They said if the other one shows up they don't want it back; they don't even want to know I have it. It's already in their system as lost or stolen.

I have a Browning BAR magazine that left Bossier, Louisiana on 24 Feb and is in Conley, Georgia today.

Tracking says it will be delivered today.....that seems pretty optimistic considering it was in Georgia this morning.

Overall, I think FEDEX and UPS are miles ahead of USPS.

The whole shipping system is F'd. I thought it was just USPS, as we had damaged/missing packages, missing mail, undelivered mail and now past due bills. Well, some theives decided to rip the exhaust system off my Mom's SUV in Arizona, for the cat convertor. Older CR-V, so it was totaled by the insurance company. Still tagged MD. My mom asked me return her tags to the MVA if she ships them back. I only told her NOT to use the postal service. She sent it back UPS ground. Been stuck in Sparks for 3 weeks now, and is listed as "damaged". I don't care if damaged, I can return damaged tags. But I think they are missing, so now it is much more difficult. They all suck now.

My work place receives packages from fedex daily and the word is the winter storms we had recently especially in Tennessee is the main reason for the delays. Apparently fedex main hub is in Memphis and almost all thier packages travel through that hub. Even some packages that say originate in one state destined for a delivery in the same state has to travel through that hub. So due to the ice storm they had, the hub is or was virtually shutdown and all packages moving through thier system slowed to a crawl. I think it should be picking up again now but you probably should expect delays due to sheer volume of packages now. But that's what I've veen told ymmv

I'm so pleased that you are indeed a special person. Now could you please invoke your special powers to get my damn package dislodged from New Castle? If you can do that I'll even stop hatin' on FedEx. AND I'll give you the credit for saving me from becoming a Liberal, then (shudder) a Progressive.
