  • It either went by a very fast truck or a very slow plane.

    Might that have been a train?

    We’re rapidly approaching the point where the package has spent more time […] in the city of its final destination, than it did in transit

    That’s not really surprising, though. Going from hub to hub is always very fast, whereas leaving the inter-hub backbones is much, much slower. “Last mile” and all that. Same is true when travelling by plane within Europe, f.ex. – getting to the airport and then from the destination airport to the final destination takes at least as long as the flight itself does.

    I can see how it’s still annoying in your case though…
