This BETTER not be the case!
I just called FedEx (the listed shipper on my delivery notice) and spoke with someone about the delivery, here's what I found out:
The tracking number I gave him indicated the package was coming via FedEx ground. Shippers can (and in this case did) create labels and tracking numbers in advance to prepare the packages for shipping.
On the next business day (today), the ground service picks up all the packages for the day and then brings them back at the terminal. Once at the terminal the package will be scanned and the tracking number activated. At the same time it will be updated with a delivery date.
According to the nice man from FedEx, all of this happens at the same time in the terminal. He said the updates won't happen until this evening, around 8:00pm Central time.
Delivery dates for ground are based on distance from the shipper. In my case I'm looking at a Friday delivery, assuming everything above happens as expected and there are no problems with the label.
