White van man rocks up with the delivery of a package. I go out to his van to take it from him but he says he is a few minutes early and cannot hand it over "until the delivery time slot." Sits in van like a spare part for several minutes and then hands over the package.

FFS.:mad:

Al, some couriers are unable to scan and deliver any time outside of the 1 hour delivery slot - considered as ‘failing their promise to the customer’ apparently. Frustrates them equally.

To be fair matey was very apologetic. No gripe against him personally.

Shirley if the customer is in and happy to take delivery just feckin' get on with it. Not rocket science to tap a key that customer is happy.

We really have become a ludicrous "computer says no" society.

In and out of the box........packing!!!!
It's the kind of bu!!sh!t us delivery drivers have to put up with now, being told which way we should do our and what time we have to get there because the computer knows best. Does it b0!!0cks!!! Last Tuesday I had 102 deliveries and according to the computer I shouldn't have back to the depot until 9pm and failed to attempt delivery at eleven of them. I did the route my way (21 years of experience, you'd think I'd know what I was doing by now), cleared the lot and was finished by 7pm. Tells you all you need to know about the systems delivery firms are using. Some are better than others but none of them are better than driver knowledge.

I witness this a lot with deliveries to the Club.
Surely the firms can rejig their software so the customer can overide the 'promise' with some equivalent of 'signed for'?
