Especial venom is directed to UPS (Ur Parcel Smashed) who can't deliver anything here without sitting on it or using it as a football, and DHL (Don't Have Logistics) who were supposed to deliver a parcel yesterday, but changed that to the 9th, then the 12th, then back to the 9th, then told me it had been handed to Evan (because they gave me the delivery details for a different customers package), then back to the 12th, and just now decided it's the 10th instead. Sigh | :sigh:

Some are OK - Yodel appear to work fine, DPD tend to dump and run but that's OK where we are, and Amazon Prime Delivery can manage pretty much anything and do some really long hours.

Let's not mention Fedex as I tend to start foaming at the mouth and swearing ...

But how can the big players get their logistics and computer tracking systems so badly wrong? Or is it just me?
