“Seeds of a bull”

Customers who chase courier company staff on social media and ask for personal contact details

When the courier company’s customer service team contacts a customer the main objective is to fulfil the customer’s shipping needs and provide the best guidance possible.  However, sometimes a customer will become curious not only about the professional lives of courier staff but their personal ones too.  A distinct barrier needs to be in place defining the boundaries between a professional service and an unhealthy personal agenda.

Providing the courier with a photo of a building or a map to help with the parcel pick-up instead of providing an actual address

Courier drivers receive all the information they need about the order in order to collect or deliver a parcel.  Yet, sadly, there are no photos attached even when none are required.  Nevertheless, many customers try to send the courier team photos of their houses, buildings, doors or post boxes as a way to inform the courier team where they want the packed to be delivered to.  It is important at this stage to mention that courier companies cannot forward these photos to the courier drivers so the best thing a customer can do is write the correct address!

Lying about the shipment

Whenever there are any irregularities with a customer’s shipment or pick-up a courier company’s courier partners will inform them of such irregularities.   If the parcel is much bigger or heavier than stipulated this will be found out, in other words the courier company is going to know about it.  However, there are often cases whereby a customer will argue that the courier company taking care of the shipment is lying about the shipment.  The moral of the story, don’t try and trick us, please!
