    1. A whole planeload of iPads is normally shipped.
    2. When they land in Anchorage AK, customs officials inspect every one. How ever many that is to fill a plane. Probably pretty many.
    3. They are usually sent to Memphis for sorting and resending to final destination.
    4. Mine is going to Dayton OH and has departed Memphis and will be in Dayton tonight. Loaded on delivery truck for delivery tomorrow morning. Yours is probably treated the same way, wherever you are.
    5. Actually pretty fast all things considered. Mine was shipped on the 22nd of June. It was originally scheduled for 1 Jul delivery.

    That is all I know. I got most of this from calling Memphis center.

    I do not believe that Customs agents individually inspect each iPad in a planeload shipment. I'm not questioning your veracity, but that of the FedEx person who told you.

    Mine it was supposed to be shipped on 7/21 an delivered on 7/24 but shipped on 7/18 and delivered on 7/23. It took more time in China....I think the moment leaves China becomes fairly fast.

    ???

    Could be mistaken, but I specifically asked if they sampled and she said no, they inspect all of the items on the plane. Of course, they may not open them all.

    Uggghhh, this sucks. Last update I have shows the iPad leaving China on the 25th. Nothing since. Would love to see the update saying it came through over the weekend and is in Memphis for final shipping. But I know that's not the case. Expected delivery is still the 29th but I'll admit I will be shocked if that happens.

    Mine took 28 hours to get from Shenzen China to Raleigh North Carolina. Raleigh is 1 hour away.

    It has been in Raleigh NC since about 7pm Friday evening. Not sure why it was not delivered Saturday. Hope it gets here tomorrow.

    I have much better luck with UPS

    I've noticed the same thing. In my opinion, UPS has gotten much more consistent with their shipping.

    I've worked for both UPS and FedEx. They only check the cargo manifest numbers against the pallets. They do not inspect every iPad.

    Millions of products arrive every day from china and other countries inspecting every item would be impossible random check is the norm. At the end of the day you ordered a product it is picked then shipped I cannot see the sense going around in circles about what happens to it in transit
