ABXrude customer service, slow in deliver parcels

H Review updated:

We are an online company, we send out many parcels almost everyday to our customers. Our customers always do not receive the parcel on the next working day. we realized this happen mostly to our Penang, KL and PJ customer. ABX hold their parcel more than 2 to 3 weeks without sending it out. And when you call them to check on the status, they said it is because short of manpower. This is ridiculous. Other courier company dont have this 'short of manpower' issue, why ABX has this issue in every branch? We engaged ABX because we want customer to receive their stocks on next working day with reliable service. But looks like it is otherwise. If that's the case, we as well use normal post ! Their motto is 'Delivering Satisfaction Worldwide'. Nonsense!
And we do have an issue with their personnel as well, there is this guy named Adrian who are very rude while talking to his customer. When we asked him whether he knows he is very rude, his answer is 'it is not a big deal, and dont understand why we take this so seriously '.
Really disappointed with their service.

    We have airway consignments from overseas whereby ABX is the local agent. These consignments alwasy ended up with delayed clearance. When we called up to check the status, there was only 10% chances that the calls were being connected to the customer service staffs. Then they would give u the answer that u can even memorise - Shipment not arrives in Malaysia. Come on, flight of 6 days can go how many rounds United States already.

    ABX does not record arrival immediately, take their own sweet time to do clearance. Before consignments cleared from Kastam, there will be no update in the tracking system. Hence, their customer service staffs can only tell - Shipment not arrives in Malaysia. Then we were asked to contact the person in charge. One and only one guy named Azam who is incharged for arrival, clearance and so on at the airport. We have been calling for a year, since the first case. Surprisingly, we have not been able to speak to him once. We tried to ask other staffs, they also could not contact him, not sure whether he is already at work, working or missing. But he is the only person, so what we can do is 'WAIT'. How long to wait, no one knows. So long as consignment not being cleared from Kastam, then there was no update, nothing. Then we need to assume consignment not yet arrives or travelling to Venus.

    Most of the customer service staffs are very rude. When we asked for their name, they dare not tell. We asked to speak to person in charge, they said will ask the person in charge to call back, but NEVER. When they could not answer certain issues, they just asked us to hold on, then hanged the line.

    ABX - Absolutely Bad Xpress - A lousy courier company, with most lousy staffs, providing lousy service. Not we want to use ABX, we got no choice our overseas suppliers all use their service, maybe CHEAP.

    ABX is a rubbish courier service provider. 3 parcels sent out by same day, same location, to same destination, same recipient. After hanging for few days, only 1 parcel arrived. Checked in their tracking system, checked with customer service staffs, they gave answer 'No record found'.
    One of the staffs gave me another number to contact the person in charge Azam. The number given was another courier company number which is not related at all. Ridiculous!!!
    Then I was given Azam mobile number. I have called for many times but he did not pick-up the calls. One of the ABX staffs in PJ brand told me that 'normally Azam's response is very SLOW'.
    Then again, I called their Subang office, where Azam based. I have been calling for 3 days but could not get him. The staffs there did not see him, not sure he is on Honeymoon, Cuti or Mati. The lady staff answering the call said she also looked for him the day before, but could not reach him.
    Another thing, I commented that other courier service providers like EMS, Skynet, Poslaju, Nationwide update every progression status in their tracking, why ABX does not have that. The staffs asked me whether I can select those other courier companies with my overseas supplier at purchasing.

    We did try to call Siti Hawa Abdullah, ABX Country Customer Care Manager to complaint on ABX service and rude employees. But we called for continuously 5 days from Morning to evening, she never pick up her direct line at all. We wonder does ABX management personnel ever work in the office or they are holidaying all the time?

    Agree with all, ABX sercice is suck, keep item at warehouse for so many days, until i said that i wanna pick up myself because i cant wait anymore. Te customer service girl said my item was at subang warehouse. When i travel far to subang warehousr, the guy said my parcel is at cheras outlet! I called customer service again, this time she said it is at ABX federal highway. I want the contact number of the outlet so that i can check whether the item is REALLY at this outlet or not. But that phone number never has someone to pick up call.

    Dear All,
    Just recently, i went thru a bad experience with ABX.
    1. I am supposed to get my parcel on 28/03/2013 (Thursday), but they said they couldnt find my address as it was incomplete so they called me up about 9.39am & 9.40am to inform me so, and if possible, they want me to collect it myself at their office in PJ but I refused & claimed that it was purely sender's fault to not state the full address so ABX took down my full address and promised to send it to me.
    2. The next day, 29/03/2013 (Friday), I checked with my mailing rooms staffs whether they have received my parcel, they said there was nothing. I checked their delivery status online. ABX Services has updated in the tracking system as the item is delivered and it was signed by - CO-STAMP?! And the items is nowhere?! This is totally unacceptable?! I have had experienced my parcel went missing once but it was SkyNet. So, I called up ABX Customer Service to lodge a complaint on my missing parcel. I spoke to a staff by the name of Ika. She then delivered the real story: The parcel is actually safe with them, at their PJ office, it seems that the delivery boy couldn’t "find" me or anyone to collect my items on behalf? Really? FYI, our company is using ABX Services also. That guy managed to collect our daily shipments but he was not able to deliver the item to anyone and furthermore he has stamped our CO-Stamp on the delivery note?

    I've had 2 parcels which were attempted to be delivered but no one was at home, so they just left a white card, not even stating whether I should collect it myself or whether they would reattempt delivery. When i rang the number on the card, i am put on hold and have to wait a really long time before someone gets on the line. And when they do, they ask for my consignment number, put me on hold, and then tell me the person in charge is busy & that they would get the person to call me back. Needless to say, the person never does. This has happened for 2 different parcels, both of which I have not received. Finally when I get through to this very busy person in charge, I am told that my 1st parcel was damaged. Like, hello?? Was it damaged before or after the attempted delivery?? And it took 1 week before I finally got to contact them! They didn't even bother to call to inform me. I am still waiting for the 2nd parcel. It's the same story again, nobody is calling me back, and it's been 2 weeks already. Emails I send get bounced back to me as well. Not only are they unreliable and slow, but the email address for complaints which is stated on their website is also not functioning! Companies & individuals should just stop using ABX Express. It is really the worst courier company I have ever come into contact with.

    I have a bad experience too, complaint on their driver's attitude, so rude and I feel threatened to continue using their service. I will worry about my next parcel and myself. Wrote an email to [email protected] and complaint, shockingly, failed to send with reason: The mailbox is full. Attempted to call to customer service, it can never be reached. Tried two days, I gave up!

    Exactly. ABX senai has holding my parcel for more than a week already. Everytime when i called there's no one there to pick up my call. When I email them they will reply by saying that the parcel is out for delivery. they make me waiting for the parcel like ages but never reach. this is the second time i have bad experience with abx. The first time was that they did not deliver my parcel successfully but no notice and phone call was receive until i went to their office and checked with them. they service is really bad.

    My parcel is keep tracing since 5/6/2015 and was told by the person in charge in head office my parcel is lost but the reason is they are unable to contact the deliver driver who hold my parcel so is consider lost.. May I know anyone who had this kind of experience before? Will it get back the parcel in the end of the day?

    i keep calling 03-7859 6911 / 03-7859 6133 since this morning many times and no one pick up!

    this is not the first time i call and no one pick up!previous also same!

    i had experience before this when i went to subang branch to pick up my parcel, they didn't even approach customer and only entertain after i ask them about my parcel. phone ringing too long but no one of them pick up the phone. they have time to chit chat but they didn't even pick up the phone!

    is this the service provided in subang?cause i know the service in hq is good
    or they will just pick up when the manager or up level around?
    seriously this is the terrible service i had!
    i think after this i had to take picture or video to prove what the really situation there as a prove.

    My advice is do not use this courier company, if you are sending valuable items, the items will have high chances of it being stolen by their staffs, and their attempt of delivery is awful, if they call do call you but could not get through, your item will just be sitting in their depot.
