Warp drive

I’m awaiting a parcel from the US and got a bit of a shock when the latest update on the USPS tracking page showed me this result…

However you look at it that's traveling fast from Sydney to Hong Kong. Shame I actually live in Sydney though!

The item made its way briskly from North Carolina to Miami and then appeared in Sydney only to be whisked away to more exotic parts. How I wonder can an item depart Sydney and then 5 minutes later depart Hong Kong? But HK was 3 hours behind Sydney on the 4th April, the night before the end of Daylight Saving in Australia. (Now it’s only 2 hours behind). Even so, it’s travelling incredibly fast. And I’d like it to come back to Sydney soon…. It sounds like it forgot to get off.

I don’t think I really know what USPS means with the words ‘Arrived’ and ‘Departed’.
