looks like Hodgkins is the kiss of death, its only been there for 30 hours but that takes up more than half of the 48hr shiping. Arrived at 8 am yesterday and then a Weather delay at 3pm, here it is 11, should have been delivered to me and no update. Never experienced trouble with UPS before but there is always that first time, i just hope its not more than a few days.

But heres the thing, there is NO adverse conditions here. Also there is no arrival scan for seattle, wa. So I am a little pissed off right now.

STILL ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS. I think the storm you refer to last week Romeohitman is reasonable, but one week later------ why is my package still being treated adversely??? Why?

Same compliant, same lip service from UPS/it is the menu of the day for the tracking system. It once stated package was finally on its way from being held up in Hodgkins for about 5 days and due for delivery.... wow, next view of their tracking system said it was due to be delivered on Wed... but wait two hours prior it said Tuesday... how which is it? I like many others verified the weather and some of the posts lived near this facility and stated BS for the reason for delay as weather. This facility obviously has issues reading the current and past posts. UPS wake up..... change the hub and down grade this facility or on Sat and Sun WORK. to SERVE us the CUSTOMER... remember US... hey we pay your salary. NEVER again will I use a vendor that ships the Brown way or will I use the BRrown UPS again. This is totally bogus blaming the delays on the weather.
It is WED. and I am still waiting for UPS....Well it just arrived and the driver said that many in the Knoxville Tenn facility was laid off due to the non delivery of packages from the Ill facility.

Let's start a facebook campaign.
Package held hostage by UPS-waiting in Tennessee for delivery.

here is what a search of my tracking number brings up...

Departed Mesquite, TX 2/4/2011 10:16 pm.

Arrived Portland, OR, 2/08/2011 3:16 A.M.
Delayed due to Adverse weather conditions.

It is now 2/09/2011 4:00pm, and here is the funny thing-I Live in Portland, OR.

I asked a customer service representative if there was a back log of trucks to be unloaded or something, the response I got was that he could only say that the package was delayed due to adverse weather conditions... What is the point of calling customer service when they simply type in my tracking number into and tell me what I already know... ugh.

I bought my products in 02/02/2011 and I am still waiting.
UPS kept a message that my products would arrive in 02/09/2009, but now: "02/10/2011 Arrival Scan". I still have to wait

Unbelievable, 9 day and UPS did not delivered. And the worst thing is that the products are garbage now, because I missed the plane that would bring the package to me. I live outside the USA.

I have a package coming that showed a departure scan from Hodgkins, IL on 2/07/11... due to be delivered on 2/10/11... at 0230 on 2/10/11 the tracker changed to "Adverse Weather blah blah blah" showing the last location as Portland, OR (15 min away). I called UPS to see what was up (as I have another package that left Portland about 40 min earlier for delivery), I was told that the weather issue is in IL and that my package has been sitting in a truck since the 7th, departure scan just means it left the building, so it can be sitting in a truck somewhere for god knows how long. In the 3 days between the "departure scan" and the "adverse weather" scan no one in IL could look out a window and make a status change? UPS tracking is a joke, I'm going Fedex from now on... they actually update their tracking (I know, crazy idea huh) instead of letting you wait for delivery only to be told in the wee hours of the morning the day of scheduled delivery to tell you it won't be there.

and wtf does it say the last location is Portland, OR if it never actually left IL???

What I was told by an actual smart person at UPS is that the "adverse conditions" aren't actually happening now. What they MEAN is that there is a backlog at the Mesquite (and Hodgkins) hubs and they have too many packages to sort and not enough trucks or train cars or people or whatever to send them out.

I think that's BS. I got several packages from USPS priority mail this past week. Our post office is inefficient and postal workers get paid whether they do a good job or not. And I STILL got my packages from USPS.

They should collect all these complaints and use them in commercials for the fricking post office.

I live in Portland Oregon and had a scheduled delivery day of Thursday, yet I checked periodically and the package arrived to Portland on Wednesday night. So I was expecting my package on Thursday according with its delivery date. But due to "adverse weather conditions" it didn't arrive as I expected. The wierd thing here is, for the past two weeks or so the weather around here has been pretty normal, nothing that would cause any delays. It is now Friday and the tracking status hasn't changed so I don't know what's going on. I'm going to give it another day before I make a phone call since I don't have an urge to get it and second this being the first time this has happened to me out of so many deliveries from UPS.

I had a package ship on the 31st, had an adverse conditions update on the 3rd and an arrival scan on the 4th, so it's in Hodgkins according to the tracking, yet it hasn't had any updates in almost 10 days! I'm extremely irritated as you could imagine.
