I agree, my nearest depot is Sligo, they sent my delivery to Galway on Wednesday morning, today I finally got confirmation that it’s lost.

I have to reorder, but the price has gone up after Black Friday. And wait a minimum of two weeks for investigation completion before I get a refund for the missing item.

Sorry to hear. It is mind boggling how awful a “service” the likes of these guys and others provide. Not surprised at all reading the above.

So I got an email saying my parcel would be with me on the Monday. So I sat in on Monday. Didn’t turn up. Tried to track it on the app but it wouldn’t send me the automated email to register my password. Didn’t turn up on the Tuesday either.

So called them up and the guy said the delivery email I got is an automated email and that they never actually received the parcel!?! I asked are they sure as why on earth would they send an email saying my parcel is out for delivery when they hadn’t even received it!??

They said I would need to contact the seller as the seller hasn’t shipped it yet.

The next day got a knock on the door from a girl who was visiting her mother 6 doors up from me with the parcel. They had delivered it to some random house on the Monday and didn’t bother to even leave me a note. And the system still had it as “out for delivery”.

Does anyone know if UPS farm out the last leg of deliveries to An Post?
I'm expecting a small packet/envelope from the States, and the status for the last week has been: "In Transit by Post Office"

12/31/2019 3:05 A.M. Ireland Package processed by international carrier
12/27/2019 3:22 P.M. Ireland Package arrived at international carrier

I'm based in Dublin 6, not exactly off the beaten track.

Shouldn't have anything to worry about so. They are probably just checking it out, if they have it.

DPD also do, Funny thing is An Post,UPS and others have a huge backlog now and cant manage their Amazon/other ecommerce Contracts and this is how they pass the blame on to other companies.

Are you sure it’s not USPS, rather then UPS?

Nope, definitely UPS
Tracking info is on ups.com and first update was:

Package received for processing by UPS Mail Innovations

Ah, I see the Mail Innovations means it's cut price UPS involving the local postal service to complete. This explains much.

I am expecting a small package tomorrow & I will be out. There appears to be no way of getting them to leave it with a neighbour.

They’ll leave it somewhere. That’s the funny thing about UPS. They’ll leave it somewhere and not leave a note nor notify you.
