Haven't heard about this but thats pretty funny. We ship our robot from one of our sponsors, Mahle, since that's where we store the crate, which is probably why I haven't heard anything.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

The question is if anyone would happen to receive 254's robot by mistake would they give it back?

That was no mistake.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

I've shipped A LOT of stuff with FedEx, but as they say.. Vigilance is price of freedom. I monitor shipments like a HAWK. Phone app, online, all the options..

One year I found out they called to check on an address and I realized they were shipping it back to the SCHOOL not to the competition.

The destination was clearly spelled out on the shiiping documents (properly filled out and attached to the crate and we kept a copy .. always keep a copy)..

They just looked at the wrong adress and started going that way!

That was me!

I met the Fedex truck to unload our (6328, yes we're in MA) robot last week, and the crate that came off was labeled 3038 but had our paperwork on it. I had to refuse delivery, and later learned that it wasn't in fact 3038's robot inside - the 3038 crate had been reused by Shephard after 3038 took their robot home uncrated. Still have no idea which robot was actually inside, and I do hope whatever team it was got it back.

At the time, Fedex had no idea where our 6328 crate/robot was, but Fedex and FIRST shipping worked their tails off and located our robot in a Fedex terminal in Ohio a couple days later, and it was returned via overnight shipment only slightly worse for wear (a forklift had poked a hole in the bottom of the crate, and crate had clearly been on it's face at some point - only minor bumps/bruises to the robot itself).

The FIRST logistics person I was working with is continuing to track down exactly where the error happened to prevent future occurrences. Given that our paperwork was actually on the wrong crate, I tend to think it happened within the venue before the crates were loaded onto the Fedex trucks. But I don't know that for certain.

That was me!

I was at our workspace to receive our robot after Detroit last week, but the crate that FedEx pulled off the truck was clearly painted with 3038 and not ours (6328, yes we're in MA) even though our paperwork was attached. Turns out that 3038 had taken their robot home uncrated, and Shephard used their crate for another team. No idea which team's robot was actually in that crate - I hope they got it back!

In any case, I had to refuse delivery and at the time FIRST and FedEx had no idea where our robot was. The people at FIRST logistics worked hard and were able to locate our robot in, I think, a FedEx terminal in Ohio a couple days later. It was shipped to us overnight and arrived with only minor bumps and bruises.

Given that our paperwork was on the wrong crate, I'm inclined to believe that it was an error within Cobo Center before the crates were loaded on the FedEx trucks. But the FIRST logistics people were continuing to investigate to make sure it doesn't happen again in the future.

I will say both FIRST and FedEx took the situation very seriously.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

Ask Team 469 Las Guerrillas about where their robot was the Thursday of Detroit half champs this year. It wasn't in their pits. In fact I don't believe it was even in the building. They did, however, get it in time to compete.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

I've gotten a few folks who have approached me about this issue privately. For those who are interested, we still don't have our robot. Today marks one month since we last had it.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

IMO, if you ship your robot in a crate, and want to take it with you, the crate is your responsibility. You have to bring it home with you or you destroy it.

Re: FedEx Crate Shipment Mishaps

We finally have our crate back! Many thanks to 6390, as well as those who were involved in getting it through customs.

Here's to hoping that we've all got the right crates and robots now.
