Lost in the post

- +

I read with interest your article regarding the expansion of the Thai Post Office International Parcel Service. It sounds absolutely great, let's hope it works better than their current core business. I live 50 kilometres north of Nakhon Sawan. 

Since the floods of 2011 we have received absolutely no deliveries of international mail (there have been at least eight missing items of correspondence from the UK and Belgium). This is despite the fact that some of the correspondence has the address written both in English and Thai so translation should not be a problem.

Before the floods the delivery of air mail was a little slow (10 days on average) but reliable. Could somebody from Thai Post please explain in honest terms what has gone wrong with their system? Unless they get their act together they will not survive in the international business world. I have tried well-known international courier services with no better results as they appear to transfer deliveries (even though I've paid for door-to-door service) to the Thailand Post if the destination is outside Bangkok _ and I get the same negative results.
