Is USPS tracking accurate?

I bought an item off of ebay,and it was only 3-4 hours away from where i live(It was in Brookfield,Ohio.Im in Cincinnati,Ohio).So i figured it would come from that USPS facility and come straight down to my local USPS facility.
But instead,its going even farther from my location.

It went from Brookfield,to Vienna,to Youngstown,to Akron,to Cleveland(All in Ohio),and now to Warrendale Pennsylvania.
It has the correct address.So is it just USPS tracking messing up,or is it USPS sending it there for what seems to be an incredibly confusing way to send it?

you need to understand how usps – or any carrier for that matter – does their routing….your package is not the only one in their system + unless you paid for a quicker delivery service, like Priority, then the package will go on a journey, so to speak…in example: your item left the seller and was taken to the next sorting hub on that route, which could be almost anywhere, and sorted via zip code; from that hub, your item, along with 1000's of others, will go to the next sorting facility, and so on…………………it may not make sense to you, but it does to the carrier………….your package will be delivered on the date shown in the usps tracking info & next time you order an item, if you want it delivered sooner, then pay for a faster delivery service 🙂

Yes, in my experience USPS tracking is typically very accurate when it gives an expected delivery date.

Unfortunately, shipping doesn't work as logically as we would like for it to.

They do sorting at major hubs. Mail put into the box in Milwaukee is taken down to Chicago, sorted there, sent back to the closest post office then delivered. While this SOUNDS like it would take a long time, I mailed a card here in Milwaukee to my brother in Minnesota at 11am and it was at his home by 5pm same day.
