Angry Paphos post: Delivery attempted

When researching the state of a parcel delivery from abroad, we get "delivery attempted" when looking up tracking numbers for EMS and DHL. There is no notification given but one has to do the research by following the tracking numbers.

There was no delivery attempted as we have been present on the occasions they claim to have attempted delivery.

Each time we have to go to the ACS office or the Post Office to pick up.

This is no a proper delivery to the addressee service as they do not attempt delivery but instead hold the parcel at an office without even giving notification in any form.

This is a cynical way of boosting profits as there is no need to use any transport or driver to perform this.

Is this the reality throughout Cyprus?

Only had two packages sent by ACS which I tracked and then had to phone office in Paphos to find out when it was available to collect because they didn't phone to say it had arrived.

Good service at our end, ACS usually phone to say the parcel has arrived and can collect that day or have delivered the following day, as soon as the delivery man arrives at the bottom of our drive he phones to let us know he's there so we can walk down to collect the package, he won't come to the house tho' due to having a dog on the premises.
