    I ordered some stuff off of B&H and it was expected to come today. Well, it didn't. When I tracked my shipping I saw this

    Is that normal? I'm pretty sure that it isn't. Why would they ship to Canada then ship back to USA? BTW I live in Leduc, Alberta and the shipment is worth about $650.

    I haven't figured out shipping routes yet, nor do I really care to. I know the destinations may bounce around and seems illogical, but they (usually) have their reasons. I have had shipment values from $15 (...but I really, really wanted it) to $1500 USD. I have only used the 3-5 business days for delivery from B&H and have yet had to wait for the fourth day. But then again, I live on the East coast of the States.

    This part is a log entry, for a hold, not an arrival or departure:

    CALGARY,

    Does that make more sense, or did I miss the point of your question?

    Shipped on the 20th at night, arrived Canada 18 hours later. That's pretty fast?

    Did you order it Next Day Air?

    I ordered something from TI one day via UPS. It went from the west coast to the east coast of America by road, and then was flown here from the east coast. No idea why. It then said delivery attempted in sydney except that sydney is a 3 hour flight south of here. So they shipped it to brisbane where for whatever reason it was marked as delayed in customs, which makes no sense for an interstate shipment. Anyway it did get here, just don't question the method.

    Hey, it took me about a half hour to figure it out. :sexywink:

    I'm still wondering if the hold for payment was because of the billing approval for your charge or for B&H to pay UPS! :lol:

    Since the package arrived, if you are really hot to get whatever it is, maybe you can go pick it up at UPS? Although I don't know how good they are at needles in haystacks, their ads claim they can find anything, anywhere.

    It's probably already loaded on your local "car".

    Which brings up a bit of trivia. UPS didn't call them trucks, or at least they didn't back in the 60s. They are cars. So when I saw the NASCAR ads about drive the truck, it reminded me.

    They shouldn't provide all those shipping details...all it does, is get people's hopes up and then give them heart attacks.
