    It would help if we know what courier it is.

    Would help to know if you're waiting on delivery or collection too?

    or possibly this belongs in consumer affairs? not quite sure what relevance it has to commuting and transport.

    Do you mean booked the collection on Monday to be picked up on Tuesday and then delivered on Wednesday ? I can tell you that courier company’s are already maxed out with volume of deliveries at the moment and this weeks bank holiday will have them stretched even further with most offering a limited service on Monday if I was you I would allow an extra day or two this week.

    Booked Monday and told if booked before a certain time would be collected the next day, when finished it did state would be collected the next day, it was lifted few days later but times listed that it was collected is incorrect and not delivered yet to the person, we tried calling them and all you get is you're 16 or 18 In queue, if only they give the correct info on their site when you try and track it but see what happens today,

    Thanks all

    Maybe they are a forward thinking company and are using cargo bikes to collect and deliver parcels as everyone who wants to limit the use of vehicles on the roads wants (Maybe :D) also they might be white van men who are now running behind time because of enforced loading restrictions with the cycle lanes campaigns and associated knock on times, they might also be overladen with work because of the increase in courier services for internet shopping again with a knock on delay.

    EDIT

    Knew I'd seen something about couriers and congestion in C&T though it references to Spain except for some bint on about the 30kph limit in Australia
    Seems to be a bit of momentum building towards a 30 kmph limit;

    Funnily enough I got an generic e mail from a courier parcel service today asking people to bear with them regarding the extent of the delays that they are currently encountering, and to preempt same in the run up to Christmas. An Post have been under huge pressure with parcels as well so it is a known issue.

    Absolutely, NightLine took on several drivers to deliver parcels in cars rather than vans. One was supposed to deliver a parcel on Wednesday didn't make it until lunchtime Thursday
