Shipping Routes – PA to NJ to KY to PA

Here's the route my copy of Aperture 3 has (and perhaps will) take. It's unlikely given the times that any of this was flight:

2/9/2010  10:35 PM - Jonestown, PA (PICK UP)
2/9/2010  10:46 PM - Rutherford, NJ (ARRIVAL ORIGIN DHL GLOBAL MAIL FACILITY)
2/10/2010 12:00 AM - Rutherford, NJ (PROCESSED)
2/10/2010 09:26 AM - Rutherford, NJ (DEPARTURE ORIGIN DHL GLOBAL MAIL FACILITY)
2/12/2010 03:52 AM - Hebron, KY (ARRIVAL DESTINATION DHL GLOBAL MAIL FACILITY)
2/12/2010 06:18 AM - Hebron, KY (TENDERED TO USPS)
2/12/2010 10:02 PM - Warrendale, PA (Shipment Accepted)

Now I'm sure DHL and the USPS know what they're doing, but on the face of it, I'm inclined to think "WTF"?

At any rate, here's to hoping I get my copy of Aperture 3 by tomorrow. But seeing as how it just arrived in Warrendale 45 minutes ago, I wonder if that's unlikely.

P.S. I chose the free, standard shipping option because, in the past, the little things I've ordered from Apple like this have shipped directly from Cincinnati or something, and I've had the items within a day or two. Not so this time.

  1. It sure is weird how it works.

    Only once in my life I had to send something back to apple (can't remember what). Being in London and only had to get the item to Ireland, it went via Holland and the same on the way back. If I'd had the time I could have done it quicker myself.

    On the other hand, my fiancee lives in Oregon and FedEx can get stuff there in 24 hours... Generally less. Say, 5pm UK in time for 10 am OR. with a fairly direct route. One once went via Memphis (?)

    Distribution hubs and logistics is something of a black art
