Just look at this post from a Yodel driver... Says a lot about their work ethic and attitude towards their duty of care.
''I work for yodel and this is the problem. Amazon signed a contract with us to deliver envelope parcels that are safe place (we do not require a signature). What has happened now is the parcels have got bigger and bigger but the same rate applies. The drivers get paid a lot less for delivering amazon parcels than they do the rest of their deliveries.
Every parcel from amazon is safe place so if you are not in, we are allowed to leave it in a place that we think is safe. We are not supposed to have high value items from amazon they are to be sent with other courier firms.
I think the problem lies in with Amazon wanting a cheap service, therefore Yodel pay their drivers less who if they don't deliver that parcel don't get paid. People also expect courier firms to do their job for them, Why get a parcel sent to your home address when you know you are going to be at work? How about getting it sent to a relative or your work address. We can deliver their too.
If big companys pay peanuts they get monkeys. We will leave the parcel anywhere we can, Customers also need to take more responsibility.''
I find this sentence particularly unbelievable. Unless I'm missing his meaning... But yeah. Funny that: people expect courier firms to deliver their items o_O
''People also expect courier firms to do their job for them...''
