Post Parcel Security In Transit   Sat Aug 13, 2011 9:16 am

Over the years the parcel security in Europe has been exceptionally good and the bulk of letters and parcels go through with no problem. Every so often there will be a small problem, but the input of security cameras and other systems tend to point to a parcels whereabouts at anyone time so that the chances of losing a parcel is very low and if it does occur the loss can be tracked back directly to the last place it was seen and the last person that handled the parcel.

The result has been to produce a very trustworthy system. The best parcel carriers pride themselves on this service and their reputations rely on such a good service. This is not the case throughout the World and at the moment there is a very strong argument going on between the customers and the Russian Postal Service, because the customers are claiming that parcels have gone missing in Russia. One person ordered a tablet computer from an Internet site in the UK but it never arrived. A parcel did arrive and it now contained 4 stones, which in total gave the same weight as the tablet computer.

Another person bought a cell phone and received a bar of soap instead, a man who ordered a video camera received a bag of sugar, and couple who went to the post office to collect a parcel that was supposed to hold a Mac 3 computer found the parcel empty. Rather surprisingly the Russian Post Office have come back with a strong sense of righteousness claiming that they only lose 3% of packages after one of the officials of consumer protection office, Alexei Samokhvalov called the results alarming.

An internet site called Post Office Thieves have received a good many posts recalling their losses but the Post Office object strongly to being called thieves. The Russian Post Office has 380,000 workers in 42,000 branches and the management are strongly defending their workforce but the complaints keep coming and it will need a little diplomacy to resolve the problem so that the people are appeased. The final outcome is uncertain, being a State enterprise normally the Post Office would win, but the Internet has opened up a hornets nest and it may well be a more sensible approach to beef up the postal systems so that all parties can be assured of a good parcel service in future.
