Ordered a new mobile in store yesterday, told it would be posted out by DPD.
Email from DPD yesterday saying it would be delivered today, I knew I would be out so chose option for it to be delivered to a neighbour (able to specify which one.
Email just now confirming it Driver Ian will deliver between 10.38am and 11.38am. Was able to easily track to see he is on delivery No. 1. Mine is No. 37. Map shows that he is out in the sticks just west of Hawick. Soon I will get a 15min delivery window so, if I really needed to, I could pop home to meet him. If I was interested, I could see in detail the journey it has taken so far from warehouse to dept to local depot to van.
More info than you can shake a stick at. One day, all delivery companies will be like this...
