Singapore Post (SingPost) - Very Poor and Unprofessional services from the Customer Services

I had arranged a parcel to be airfreighted to the USA. The Parcel was collected on the 4 Jan, 2021. SpeedPost had estimated the delivery will be between 5-7 days to reached its destination. I did the payment for the shipment.

On the 11 Jan, we called up their customer service, and shocked to find out that they did not uplift my parcel due to some issue. The parcel was still in their Hub. So, I asked her why didn't anyone informed us on this issue? She cannot reply and did not give any definite answer. Her name is Ika. That was the first CS I spoken to. She said she will update us soon. There was no update at all. Next day, we called and another CS took the call and repeated the same to us. They even said that the parcel will be returned back to us. When I asked when, she said she do not know. Her name was Sasha. In the afternoon, we called to check on our parcel to be returned, but this time another CS took the call. She did not informed that the previous CS did not do any actions on her part and this CS, Ida had to escalate and check the returned delivery. She also mentioned that she will update us again. I called again in the late afternoon since the CS did not call, this time was another CS, Parvean. Now, this lady told me that she had arranged a Manager to call us before 8pm that evening. There was no call from that Manager at all.

I had gone thru 4 Customer service agents and none can resolve the issue of my 6kg parcel. All of them said the same sentences as their been asked to say. Ï'm sorry". It was stranded in the HUB and until today was not returned to us as yet. Being Singapore Post, where is the efficiency of the standards they so called being the best. Their service totally unacceptable and not professional at all.

The sad truth is being unprofessional, the Manager did not keep his promise to call us back which lack in the integrity of the so called Manager of the Singapore Post.

Desired outcome: I need my parcel and my refund back.

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Claim process for lost parcel - pingpong between different departments

Hi Sir, I ordered an SingPost Shop philatelic order #[protected] worth SGD69.20 include postage to Malaysia. The parcel tracking ID was RA649230822SG. Sadly the parcel was lost in Malaysia after custom inspection. Since then I contacted and follow up with Singpost Shop, Singpost Customer Services for registered mail and finally Singpost Claim. Many tickets were opened and all enquiries were replied with professional messages but it took months for me to receive the message that I can not claim for the lost parcel but only the Sender (SingPost Shop) can do it.
I attached the some of the information in attachment.

Desired outcome: Please re-send a NEW parcel with the ordered philatelic order or just refund me back to my credit card.

Case finally closed. Singpost Shop will resend another parcel to replace the lost order.

Sorry, correction, the lost Singpost order was #[protected] worth SDD18.65, not the previous one I mentioned which was another order which I already received.

Singapore Post (SingPost) - P.O.Box

On 8/11/2021 I went to the Sing Post at Bukit Batok Central Post Office to apply for P.O.Box to have my mail redirected into this box.
I was told to pay $96.30 for the rental of the box and also to pay another $89.10 for 3 mths redirecting service. The service will start only on 11/11/21.
Everything seems well but unfortunately on 10/11/21 when I approach my bank, insurance company, credit card service and was told that we are not allowed to send to P.O.Box. Now my question is, why was I not told, I would expect the staff to tell me these companies do not allow us to use this service. As you are well aware that I am a senior citizen, surely we are not updated and it is your front line people who should advise us what to do, instead they kept quiet about it and all they want me to do is to make the payment that's all.
Today on 11/11/21 I went to the Post Office again to inform them to redirect my mail to another address instead of P.O.Box and I was again to make another payment of the same amount again.
I have not even use the box yet and my hard earned money is forfeited. I think this is not fair to me, it is not my fault as your staff did not inform me and I paid it innocently. I wish to request for a refund as this not fair to a senior citizen and this only happen 2 days ago.
Please review and refund me some money as I am a retiree and the money is very important to me. Thanks

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Outdated, slow and expensive postage fees.

After waiting fir two weeks no update, finally they said they going to send my item to me .

Postage fees expensive but system lousy . 1605 also shorthanded .
A goverment post centre like this really a shame .
i have informed them i will be at home with the door open .
let's see if this delivety will end up as failed delivery or item losted in warehouse .
If my item still undeliver or losted, you better help me check with ICA .

Desired outcome: Give me back my items if losted in ICA or compensate .

Singapore Post (SingPost) - delivery guy/courier guy

I have received an attempt to deliver notification from my phone went outside and nobody is around and no delivery notification letter. He will always do this and even reach to 3 attempts. There are people in the house he just have to knock.
There was a time whereby I did bot receive my parcel and and singpost was not able to track. He should have the items as the tracking number in the paper and my item tallies.

Desired outcome: pls investigate on how he does his job “attempt delivery notification but was not physically around i happen to be at the dining when i received the notification so it is impossible he was there

Singapore Post (SingPost) - No Response for Over 2 Weeks despite Repeated Reminders to Address vPost Problems

The following sequence of events illustrate how bad and highly unsatisfactory Singpost's service is. Not only does it reflect the need to improve the skill level of its Customer Service Team (even for basic understanding of customer's questions and answering to the point) but also to respond and enhance service recovery in a reasonable time. Having its auto feedback system to generate multiple tickets means NOTHING to assist customers!

Hi, Jason. We are sorry to hear of your service experience. Please allow us to follow up on your case and one of our consultants will get in touch with you. Thank you. - Gab

Hello Julia, I have been waiting 2 weeks since u stated here for your consultant to contact me. It has been 5 weeks these problems remain unresolved. Tried calling 1605 three times and every time, the line got cut-off after holding on for 15-20 mins! What is going on with Singpost's service? I think this is a disgrace to Singapore's accolade as an "efficient" country

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Stated Unsuccessful Delivery despite myself being at home the whole of yesterday waiting for it

Date: 30/09/2021
Tracking Number: SPXQAS000445103
Item: A Full Sized Headphone

It is reflected on the app that my package is unsuccessfully delivered on 30/09/2021, however, I was home the entire of 30/09/2021, so there was no way that I would miss the delivery since I did not even take a step out.

Unless the deliveryman decided that since the parcel is unable to fit the letterbox, which obviously it is not able to since there is no letterbox in Singapore that can fit a Full Sized Headphone, to label it as Unsuccessful Delivery.

Please do not ask me to contact the customer care line, as I did it already and it just left me with your ringtone for a good 1 hour without reaching anyone.

Desired outcome: The location of my parcel

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Service. Parcel received with missing items and trash/ paper booklets inside the box.

The tracking is - CI090539785IN
My parcel arrived in Singapore on 17th Sept. As I was expecting some dryfruits & sweets (that might get spoiled due to delay, I called & requested if I can come & collect my parcel. The agent said - parcel arrived in damaged condition and is with customs for repackaging. I rec'd it on 18th but with my items missing.

Singapore Post (SingPost) - SpeedPost and poor customer service and recovery

I would like to express my frustration and disappointment over a recent experience (14 Sep), AND the customer service after I've made a complaint to their website.

I was due to receive a parcel from HK for which SingPost is probably their Singapore delivery partner and the merchant who had sent the parcel had not indicated my unit/apartment number.

On the day of the delivery, I had received numerous calls from their staff, first via a landline and then subsequently 7 others through a mobile number. As I was in a meeting, there was no way I could have answered. Even if it had been an urgent issue, there had been no text for which I might have been able to understand what was the urgency. Instead, the staff made repeated calls over a 2h period. On the last call through the landline, I was able to give him my unit number but only after texting the mobile did i realise it was the same person who called through the landline. I thought I share the considerations I had but was met with a rude "Noted with Thanks" for that.

I am not too sure if this is the level of professionalism that SingPost wants of their staff and would want to team to investigate and apply the correct intervention to ensure that such staff know how to professionally engage their customers.

The second disappointment is their customer service after I've filed the above-mentioned complaint. I wrote in to their customer service (1) and the customer service operator had apologise on SingPost's behalf and requested the tracking number to assist in the investigation (2), which I had promptly provided (3). However, they replied to inform me the parcel had been delivered to me and requested for my name, contact, address, photo of the mail, content description (4). But I was neither looking for delivery status, nor think that the information requested was necessary for the investigation, since they would have them in the system already. I replied to ask why those were all necessary (5), to which I got a reply of the exact same previous email (6). This led to me wondering if the customer service operator understood English, or simply had no heart in dealing with the case. I made an ultimatum in my reply to bring this case elsewhere (7) and another operator had replied this morning (8) with a semi incoherent reply which left me wondering if they were trained in handling customers in English at all.

After 8 email exchanges, I am very tired of dealing with them and simply want to make a point that SingPost has very poor service in general and I will never ever want to use them again. This is one experience to show that sometimes as a national post they may have gotten complacent and customer service doesn't matter much anyway and will always retain their core business regardless of what happens.

Desired outcome: A reply preferably not from the customer service team, explaining how all these poor services were allowed to manifest, and corrective actions that they would take, if they bother.

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Lost parcel

Making this complains for so many times but no action taken and customer service officer just entertain me saying that will call me and let me know what is the outcome and until now no calls and no reply. I check again by myself and this appears. What kind of attitude and what kind of service singpost serves. They just to cover their mistakes and make people go round and round without an answer. They really don't reserve previous four stars. They are the worst services I ever come across. I

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Send item wrongly to another country which I have stated very clear the address Thailand

Hi morning on 11 September morning I went to singpost at hougang mall to send out parcel to Thailand and paid a postage of $123.00.
But to my shock the parcel is send to Philipiness instead of Thailand and the thing arrived there on 15 September and not informing any one in Singapore about the parcel is there until I check the track system and it stated undelivery in Philipiness on 15 September.
And I keep trying to call singpost centre for almost one whole day and keep saying high volume and have to hold on and on . I withdrawal calling after that second day I tried early in the morning about 8.05 then someone pick up the call and I told him about this case and the answer we have send email to you just fill up it will do. I asked him will the parcel be track and send back to thailand and if lost how. His answer is cannot guarantee. So so disappointed with the service of speedpost and all things happend in an ugly way. Hope my parcel can be track and send to Thailand. Very disappointed as this is a birthday present for someone.

Thank you for contacting SingPost on 22 September 2021.

Please be informed that we have received your request to check for the parcel with tracking number ER401804455SG.

We would like to inform you that as per our status update this item is being tagged as failed delivery to the recipient in Philippines since 15 September 2021.

Please help us with the following details in order to proceed with your request.

1. A copy of the consignment note
2. A copy of the item invoice

This send by Singpost to me. They have early received that the parcel is failed delivery and did not double check with the delivery side to double confirmed and check the address at all and if I did not make a report means this parcel will keep holding on at Philipiness. Since 15 September the item is stated failed delivery. Is this the way Sing post handle the parcel without further check and confirm. Really really terrible services and very very disappointed with this type of attitude. Thank you.

Until todate I did not received any calls from singpost to explain what happened to my parcel by mistake they send to Philipiness . Is really very horrible and terrible serivces which singpost has offered. One of them asked me to call 1605 what kind of nonsence is it, now is your responsible to find the parcel and return send back to the place as requested and not asking me to call and keep holdings on the phone without any response. Really very disappointed with the ugly statement. Is almost a week the parcel is report at somewhere and if singpost not going to solve it then I will make a report to THE CASE the authority. Very very disappointed and is a terrible service I ever come across.

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Unuqdated tracking status and Unsuccessful delivery with no reason

Hi Singpost,

I have a parcel sent from Singapore to Germany on June 2021. Tracking No. CC922686829SG. Due to the importance and urgency of the goods, I kept monitoring the tracking status everyday from Singpost website. It kept showing the items has been departed from Singapore hub and received at airport processing facility, until 20th Aug 2021. However, on the same day of 20th Aug, the parcel has actually been returned in to Singapore. We in Germany did not receive any information of any attempt parcel delivery. And the information from Singpost tracking system has not been updated at all either.

Subsequently, I contacted with customer service for clarification. I also requested Singpost to resend me the parcel. Singpost kept asking me to wait for their investigation. The investigation number is CAS-5815664. 3 weeks has been passed, nothing heard from Singpost and no investigation result. Even more disappointed, Singpost also hesitated to resend me the parcel.

As a customer, I have paid for the postage, and provided the correct information. I should have the right to receive my parcel, in regardless of whatever Singpost's internal problem to be investigated. I do not want to wait forever for your investigation result. I just need my parcel. Please check and solve the issue urgently.


Desired outcome: Resend the parcel to me

Singapore Post (SingPost) - Customer Service

Dear sir,

I am writing to express my disappointment about the customer service in Singpost Ang Mo Kio Central Branch.

My mother and I have made a courier service on 3 September ​2021 around 1-2p.m and this is the first time we try to, so we do not sure how to do and your colleague a middle age lady have taught us. After finish packing our stuff we was bringing the things to her but we forgot to wrap the box so she was very angry and talk loudly to us and this was what she said"我刚说得不够清楚吗?为什么你们还不明白?我已经说了要包一层纸,她听得懂华语吗?" The attitude was so terrible, it makes me feel so uncomfortable and disappointed about it.

I wasn't able to get her name but she was in customer service counter 2 wearing a face shield and mask. The parcel she helped us to process which is AKC-[protected] and the transaction number is [protected].

I appreciate if you make an effort to improve your customer service. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Ms Wong
