This is especially for ex pats in Greece, but could well apply to other countries too...

Things have changed a bit since Royal Mail was privatised a short while ago, and ELTAPOST are no longer dleivering parcels over a certain weight, or parcels that need a signature...These items are being sent via Germany and they are being delivered by ACS (in Greece) instead.

As it nears Christmas (Oh No!), many are sending parcels to relatives to Greece and other countries....

First off make sure the sender in the UK includes the recipients telephone number as part of the address, preferably on the second line after the name, and include the international dialing code too so that it is quite clear that it is a phone number..... Irrespective of whether it is a parcel or just a letter, and whether it needs a signature or not....

If you are trying to track a parcel/letter needing a signature the Royal Mail web site tell you nothing....Instead go here...

DO a Google for General Logistics Systems and put the tracking number into that web site instead......

At present parcels coming to Greece are being delayed by up to 10 days......

(It seems that Global Logistics Systems are part of Royal Mail BTW)
