    What exactly are the "In Transit" scans? With UPS there's only arrival/departure sscans when a package gets to an actual facility. If it spends 5 days on a train there are no scans.

    Fedex seems to scan about every 24 hours; is it tracking the 18 wheeler or something? I've seen some in really rural places, one was the town of Index, Washington where there is no place for a truck to park. Or does Fedex send by rail too?

    It could be when a sleeper team switches drivers. Or stops to take a poop. But i don't think any of us really know. They are all subcontractors.

    Trailer GPS updates every 12 hours "In Transit".

    You can tell if it's via rail if multiple "In Transit" scans are in small cities serviced by a railroad and nowhere near a major interstate.
