Newark element 14 shipment tracking

Thu Aug 02, 2012 11:43 am

Hi,
I received an email saying that my order has been shipped, but the company is Traffic and I can't find their website to track my shipment. Can you please help me to find the website of the company?

Thank you.

Try copy-pasting the tracking number from your invoice into Google, it might link straight to it like it does with UPS of FedEx.

The only reason I asked is that then you get help from other users/buyers who have experienced the same supply chain.

I am in the UK and my experience is invalid for your problems ;)

I found this website http://www.ustraffic.com/index.html but when I click on "track shipment" it asks for a username and password.. is this broken or what? There is nothing in the email with login info. Why don't they use FedEx or UPS or Purolator like everyone else?

When I received mine in Canada from Element14 it also said shipped via "Traffic" but it was actually shipped via UPS. I went to the UPS website put in the shipment tracking number that Element14 sent me and watched my Pi make its way to my door :)

I ordered from them and got mine today, and when you receive it, let's just say that their idea of GOOD packaging* COMPLETELY sucks.

Anyways, click my acct -> order history -> click PO of relevant order -> to the right end of the line item for the shipment in question SHOULD be a tracking number -> click it

* Bubble envelope, ziplock plastic baggy, small thin cardboard box, anti-static baggy containing pi. Problem you ask? Well, yes. I think that someone played football with my envelope, sat on it, and possibly drove a cart over it as the cardboard box as squashed enough to push the expose pins on the bottom side of the pi THROUGH the anti-static bag, and well as various other cuts and tears in same bag. Fortunately no obviously completely broken off components, nor any sign of PCB cracks while taking a look while still in bag(no time to hook it up tonight as another problem had already come up that I need to take care of by morning). A SIMPLE SMALL cardboard box would've been a MUCH WISER choice in outer shipping package, esp. for such a fragile device. [EDIT] UPS was the courier here... [/EDIT]

Just curious but what shipping method did you choose? What was the final pay? Any brokerage fees? (to Canada)

Thanks!

The final pay was 47$. I chose ground shipping. 35$ for the Pi and 12$ for the shipping. I have no SD card for the moment but the PI looks good! Looking forward to using it!
