Welcome to Parcelforce Worldwide's WDMTM Online


IMPORTANT SERVICE INFORMATION


TUESDAY 17TH MAY 2011 2 PM

You may have seen the service update today on our website informing you that we experienced a major mechanical failure in our national hub last night affecting one of our four sorting machines. Whilst we managed to process around 90% of parcels which will be delivered as normal today, we were not able to sort all parcels so there will be a considerable number of parcels delayed today. All parcels not delivered today are being processed for delivery tomorrow. These parcels can be identified as having the last scan as received and processed at our national hub.

As of 1.30pm today unfortunately the mechanical issues are still not totally resolved on the one sorting machine, so we wanted to inform you that if this is not resolved for this evenings main processing phase there is still a small risk that some parcels you despatch with us today may not be processed tonight and may result in a delay in delivery.

We are endeavouring to resolve this issue as quickly as we can. Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience caused by this matter and we will of course keep you informed of the situation as it progresses.

As far as the 'does this happen a lot' remark, in the last 11 years that I can remember, and excluding delays caused by snow, I think there has been 1 power cut at the national hub and 1 bomb scare

I've had a parcel (sent from Europe) go to the wrong sodding country lol. It soon got sent back on its correct path, just left me waiting a fair few days longer.
