A FedEx Fun Fact

All right, so this isn’t fun. But it’s useful and a fact!

I recently bought something via the Internet which was shipped via FedEx Ground. The shipper forgot to give me a tracking number. While she looked for it and ultimately misplaced it, I learned that I was able to call FedEx and still get tracking information. All I needed to do was verify my shipping address, and in my case give an approximate ship date or location.

I approve of this. Tracking numbers are great, but not needing one is even better.
