KYVL Courier Service

Sorting hubs and delivery times

Each weekday following servicing of library locations, items in transit are delivered to one of Stat Courier's regional hubs for sorting. Items with W- sort codes are delivered to the Central City hub. Items with E-, N- and S- sort codes are delivered to the Lexington hub. Items at each hub are sorted for delivery the next service day, while items that need to travel between the hubs are transported after hours for sorting the following day.

Stat Courier is developing timetable of expected transit times among participating libraries.

Scanning and tracking

Items are scanned by the driver when they are picked up and again when they are delivered. They are not scanned at sorting facilities, however, and while is not possible to locate items in between these scans, it is possible to check bag barcodes for delivery status.

To track a package by barcode, follow the steps below.
