I just received my tracking number via email from you, and it shows that there is no data for that tracking number. How is that possible?
UPS automatically assigns a tracking number to each package when LA Police Gear prints the label for delivery. However, UPS does not show any information for this tracking number until it is scanned at the UPS hub later that day. Therefore, if you check a tracking number right after you receive it, the number will not have any record yet. Wait until later that night or the following day, and the number will show the accurate package tracking information.
I just received my tracking number via email from you, and it shows the order as being delivered. How is that possible?
UPS recycles all of their tracking numbers. Sometimes after a tracking number is assigned to a new package, the information available will still be from a previous order that already was delivered, sometimes months ago, under that same number. When this happens, please be assured that your tracking information will be available within a short amount of time and should then indicate the correct delivery date. Once the package has been scanned by UPS, you will also be able to click the view package progress link, and the updated tracking detail will be reflected.
