Our shipment from China is coming by sea so we know it will take longer. It was supposed to arrive in Halifax September 28 but we didn’t hear anything. A week later David sent an email asking about it. He got a reply:
Shipment re-manifested in Montréal yesterday Wednesday Aug 3 and should be leaving Montreal Today for Halifax. I do not have an ETA yet.
Oh, interesting! Our shipment went to Montreal instead of Halifax.
I got a call Monday night just as David went for a quick nap before working night shift. It was a local shipping company saying they had 2 large crates to deliver in the morning. What? This is strange. I asked if we had to go to the warehouse first to clear customs. They said no, it was in Bridgewater waiting to be delivered but they were not a moving company they just deliver. Two LARGE crates dropped off in my driveway, I don’t think so! Something is wrong. Remember we’ve done this a couple times before. So, I woke up David so he could talk to the guy and then David called our contact with Allied Pickford who was in a panic wondering how this company had our stuff! Hmm? He told David he would look after it.
Later Monday evening another email:
I spoke to the company in Montreal and it look like they got two shipment that were being picked up from the same warehouse same time mixed up I have let my agent in Halifax know to expect the shipment in.
I will be following up with the truckers in the morning and will let you know when the shipment will be at the correct warehouse.
Oh great! I guess our shipment is taking a scenic route home. I just hope it doesn’t get lost or damaged in the process. It was in Bridgewater…overnight.
It shouldn’t be too much longer.
