    So my USPS tracking hasn’t updated past the en rout to LA. But I checked Pitney Bowes for the hell of it and their tracker says mine is in Indiana. Anyone else’s Pitney Bowes showing more movement than USPS?

    Edit: apparently it’s going through newgistics to USPS?

    I don't know what goes on behind the scenes with them, but my experience with an order they were involved with was that it would sit in a location for days without moving, and at one point my package was in my local town, then went to a city 4 hours from here, stay there for five days, then come back.

    They have an array of other logistics companies that are their subsidiaries and some of those are shit. I recently had a package through them that was bouncy just like that. It was a company called Newgistics that they recently acquired.

    From what I understand, Pitney Bowes is just a logistics organization software and hardware company. They don't actually have their own people handle the packages or the physical logistics. Their organizational system is utilized by the postal service, and they get to "advertise" when their system is processing and sorting the mail.

    Let's knock off the talk about reviewers that we like or dislike and keep it focused on the figure please.

    I don't know if their tracking is accurate, which may be the biggest problem, as once mine hit the states, I never got "arrived" notifications, just a bunch of "in route to" junk.
    And if it IS accurate, then they are anything but efficient, nor competent.
    Either way, I'm NOT a fan of SFExpress, and will NEVER pay extra to have them used again.

    BTW, STILL waiting on mine, and it's shown to have been at my local regional airport now for 4 days now... and AGAIN told to "Please Wait Patiently". :banghead:

    Wasn't aware of that. The statement was based on some things I read on the board about Pitney Bowes as well as the tracking info itself. My tracking number says things like "inducted into Pitney Bowes network" and "departed/arrived at Pitney Bowes Facility," so I made my assumptions based on that.

    Any ShowZ slowboaters have any movement in their tracking? Mine hasn’t updated since it was shipped June 16th.

    My Pitney Bowes tracking had movement. Says it’s in Indiana. USPS tracking hasn’t updated past it saying it’s on its way to LA.

    I did some reading...

    This is what Pitney actually does, their involvement: Global Inbound to US | Pitney Bowes
    Mostly logistics, tech, labels.
    They have a ton of patents, and their name is often on labels.

    Pitney does operate some presort warehouse facilities (example: inbound overseas special shipper, hand off to domestic shipper like USPS/Fedex), but those aren't much different from USPS hubs. The idea that anything sits there longer than anything sits at a USPS hub is "watching a boiling kettle" imagination. And the package is actually moving within the facility. Sometimes it's waiting for the outbound carrier to pick it up, not the fault of the presorter whatsoever.

    This is one of those things that China-buyer collectors often b!tch about, but their anger is misplaced, or even imagined. All because Pitney Bowes likes to have its name on everything.
