If I'm offered a choice of shipping services when I buy something (which is rare), I always try to get them to avoid FedEx. Case in point: I have one box that's coming from NJ. Shipped on 6/8. Last time FedEx tracking has seen it was on 6/14 in "Countryside IL" (which according to Google is a small city just west of Chicago). But since the "lead time" on the purchase was supposed to be 20 days (now classified as "business days") I can't really complain about it until after the 4th of July. Does FedEx offer storage-en-route services (haven't seen that on their web site) for things that are deliberately delayed?

Had a similar occurrence with some small parts bought from a shipper in SoCal (to a NorCal address). The original shipment apparently vanished. After a week, the shipper sent a replacement and it arrived the next day (I normally expect next- or 2-day ground shipping from LA area). The original shipment actually did eventually arrive, about a month later.

UPS or USPS. Period. And UPS ground often rides a train between Chicago and West Coast points. For my stuff, that's generally indicated by the item leaving the Chicago area and turning up about 2 days later in San Pablo, CA.
