Re: Not the Status I wanted to See
Rock1098 may be able to trump me but its transportation. Very small organization.. UPS most likely has a semi-out there unloading the semi trailers that were put on the train in order to get the packages moved through thir system. This is assuming that the train with your parcel was the one that derailed. Unlike over the road, there are very few "road" that trains can use, so it may be in essence a traffic jam. UPS CS would most likely not know the specifics only it is delayed. Think about it this way. When I was in Trucking we routinely told customers that their delivery was delayed because of weather. 80 closed, storm in Denver etc....Make your calls both to ups and better yet a judgement call....
Search google: UPS train de-railment...Numberous hits.
