Tracking number

Recommended Posts

I paid via paypal, and when they sent the confirmation email they also included a note that said "It look like this is your tracking number: XXXXXXXXXXXX" with a link to the DHL site. I was curious if anyone else from the US had paid via paypal and received a similar message. Just seemed a little odd to receive a tracking number for a package not set to mail for another 4-6 weeks. Can I expect another email of shipment confirmation?

Thanks in advance

Odd, maybe, but I don't think it's a big deal..

DHL may assign them a block of lables or something and they might use that to keep track of what order things are in.. New orders get a label on the top of the pile, when a box is ready to go, they pull whatever label's on the bottom of the pile and slap it on the box.

I just found it curious.

I didn't figure it was much of anything. Your answer makes sense though and I'm sure that's probably on the right track for what it means.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
