GSP / Track ID = LPKEN...

Hi,

I got a message saying: This shipment has been transferred to LMKKEB for delivery to the final destination # LPKEN[TrackignNumber]

 

What shipping company is LMKKEB?  I tried googling it with no results - and what shipping company uses LPKEN as a tracking number?

 

Cheers?

did you use GSP to ship your product?  the only thing you need to worry about is the delivery from your address to the KY shipping point.  Ebay considers it delivered at that point. **That is the benefit of seller protection thru**  GSP repackages / customs paperwork and labels it for final destination it is GSP that is responsible from it from that point on.   and LPKEN  sounds like an Asian country tracking number.  But that is just a guess.  is it100% guaranteed not going to come back on you  No.  but it sure is a lot better then suffering thru SNAD and INR cases from an international buyer.  Good Luck

Sorry, I should've made it clearer. I am the buyer, and the seller used the GSP. I want to track the package through the actual shipping company (Not Ebay's shipping system). I want to know where I can actually do it.

If it's for the Ray-Bans, the item was shipped using the GSP. If your shipping address is in New Zealand, the estimated delivery is in 8-10 business days. I'm not sure which carrier will make the final delivery, but try DHL.

 

Your buyer protection deadline would depend on which site you were logged into when you purchased the item.

OK  that LPKEN  number is a Global shipping ref. number.  Is the package overdue?  Sense you are in a different country message your seller and ask them if they will contact Customer Support at ebay... Remind them that they are to ask for a  Global Shipping Representative (which from experience are decently trained)  they should be able to get you some updated information.  

 

I don't know if all sellers will do this but I use GSP and I do it for my buyer when they become concerned.  I have yet to not have an item reach its destination with GSP.

 

Do also note there has been terrible weather up in the "port area" where your seller shipped the item to GSP for relabeling and transport out of the USA.  That might have caused a delay.

 

GSP may cost a bit more for the buyer (the seller makes no profit from what GSP charges btw)    overall its been a postitive new addition to both the seller and the buyer.

 

Good Luck

OK  that  means that it is at GSP warehouse waiting to be shipped or it is on its way to your country and won't be scanned til it reaches there.   if its not overdue I would not worry at this point

in reply to eksallons97
Yup, It's not overdue. I just want the real tracking number so I can actually see where it is... i.e with FedEX it shows like "Scanned in Honolulu" "Scanned in Australia", "Arrived in New Zealand", "Cleared Customs", "Onboard Courier" etc.

LOL  its between GSP and your country... hopefully you will have an update soon.  Sounds like you are a great buyer and have a lot of patience.  Have a great evening

just like original poster,  I too would like to know what  LMKKEB actually stands for, since my package also seems to be in a black hole, which is less than i...

 

What's the point of being provided an apparent tracking number if you can't use it?

in reply to luminites
Yes. I agree, why does the tracking number have to be provided if it doesn't even work?

And for everyone, I FORGOT TO ADD: When i click the track parcel button on ebay, and when it says this.

This shipment has been transferred to LMKKEB for delivery to the final destination #TRACKINGNUMBERHERE

I cannot seem to click the tracking number. When it was with fedex, I could click the tracking number and it would link to Fedex with the tracking number????

Thanks

I actually suspect my package is with USPS, which in some countries might translate to DHL as an agent

In general there is no tracking availiable from Kentucky to the final destination, one of the mere advantages of the GSP program.

That's not strictly correct, because 50% of my experiences to date with GSP have involved Fedex as the final shipper, and there was full tracking, all the way, to New Zealand

Hi there - I too have a parcel which is between USA and New Zealand which says basically the same as above - transferred to LMKKEB & then a LPKEN tracking number.  I too am anxious to get my parcel - but in fairness it did give an estimated date for delivery of between April 3 and april 10 and so we are halfways there at present. 

 

Cheers!

Hi auren08. 

 

We have made some changes recently, regarding the GSP and shipments to New Zealand. These were to try and lower the overall cost, and also to improve end-to-end tracking.

 

As mentioned elsewhere in this thread, FedEx is used most often to NZ. But we do use other carriers as well. 

 

We do still get an occasional report of tracking info not getting updated after an item leaves the US Shipping Center. What is the estimated date of delivery on your item? 

 

If it has still not arrived, I would be happy to look into it from this end. Please send me a Private Message and include transaction #, item #, + eBay user id and email address used. 

 

Hope that helps.
