FURIOUS shoppers accused courier firms Hermes and Yodel of “ruining Christmas” due to delayed parcels.
Customers took to social media to complain that parcels were delayed or missing from their orders on Christmas Eve.
The delivery firms, used by major retailers including Asos and Argos to fulfil customer orders, were hit with criticism today.
If orders aren’t received by Christmas Eve, people could find themselves without gifts to give as most firms won’t deliver on December 25.
One customer said their order had been held at a Yodel depot for two days but no attempt had been made to drop it off.
“It’s been two days now. After two days I’m allowed to collect my parcel from the depot as you still are yet to make an attempt to deliver. Where the hell is my parcel?” they said.
Another complained their parcel is a week overdue with no update.
They said on Twitter: “The courier that ruined Christmas”.

A shopper added: “Yodel have ruined Christmas a little. Still had my parcels at main depot since the 16th and no sign of delivery.”
Meanwhile, consumers also slammed courier firm Hermes for being slow to drop off Christmas gifts.
One shopper messaged Asos, which uses Hermes, to say: “We are begging. Stop using Hermes. I ordered from them last week, only one of my items arrived and I still don’t have the other. It’s ridiculous.”
Another said a parcel ordered on December 7 is yet to arrive, saying it’s “Still lost in Hermes delivery hell.”
“Reordered next day delivery 21 Dec and it was sent to Hermes again! Still no show. Appalling service!!,” they said.
The Sun has contacted Hermes and Yodel for comment.
