DHL Express is slow

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 29-Dec-2006 12:54

What a joke. Called DHL again to find out about the "express" parcel I am waiting for, and now I am told there are no agents to process this in Wellington.

The package has been in the country for four days now, in the bonded warehouse for three days, plus one day in Auckland.

I am also told that even though this box is sitting on a depot 20 minutes from here, even if an agent from Auckland releases it, the chances of having this delivered today are very slim.

Let's see: long New Year holiday from tomorrow, no deliveries until next Thursday... A week from now!

This morning CourierPost delivered a package with a device to be reviewed, posted two weeks ago from Sydney, Australia. Sydney is only 4 hours from Wellington!

There you go, this is the cost of doing business in this country.
