Tracking Amazon Packages..

How you ever ordered anything from Amazon and tracked the package from its origin?
They sure take a round about way ....I think that they could save me a bunch of time of they just dropped my package out of the jet as it flies over my house....

It's become disgusting how non Amazon Prime members receive no priority and it can take over 7 days for an order to show up for non-Prime customers. If you are not an Amazon Prime member you are always last on the list.
Walmart's web site sucks but their prices are competitive and their stores are convenient for returns.

Once you have Prime you will never go back - especially for us since we live on an acreage. Some things I can order up to 1am on Saturday and get Sunday for free!

Here is what happens to me:

(remember, I live in El Paso Texas..far west Texas)

Order product
Watch the package shipping
Package leaves California so far, so good
Package goes to Phoenix so far so good
Package then goes to St. Louis, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, then to El Paso.:face palm:

WTF?
Why not from Phoenix just to El Paso which is an hour and a half away via plane?

We in Phoenix do not allow Amazon packages to go directly to El Paso.

All depends on what planes they have (or have contracted with), where they are going at the time, and what is already scheduled to be loaded. The software they use is very sophisticated to sort out the balancing act between "fastest" and "most economical (for them)". It may be far more cost effective to take a roundabout route using already committed aircraft, than it would be to pay a premium for a small load on a direct flight.

Amazon is in the process of starting it's own airline to avoid situations that you are describing.

They use the hub and spoke distribution system just like every airline in America, fed ex, USPS, all do it. I'll never give up my prime membership. I don't care if they fly my package to the moon as long as it lands on my doorstep within the promised delivery window. Out of thousands of packages, the only time I've had a late delivery was when the order wasn't fulfilled by Amazon directly or it was an 'act of God event' like a major road closure. I'm definitely a fan.
