[Resolved]  Arihant Export India — IRRESPONSIBLE COURIER SERVICE

Dear Sir,

Referenced to the above subject, kindly treat this letter as a complaint against FIRST FLIGHT COURIER services rendered recently to us against consignment Note No. FB[protected].07.2009. This Commercial shipment booked under the above consignment was delivered to FIRST FLIGHT COURIER'S representative on 30th of July 2009 along with all the requisite documents such as copies of Export Invoice, Packing List, SDF, SLI, Copy of earlier shipment Exchange Control copy (first page).

Being an urgent shipment, it was been tracked by us & when the shipment did not reach to our client till 02.08.2009, we started following up with their Marketing Executive Mr,Shailesh Ragani who, in turn was also trying to track the consignment and on 4th August 2009 we were given information that they had given the consignment to Fedex and gave us their tracking no., which we forwarded to our client and our client had to rush to FEDEX”s Warehouse for collecting the material. As FEDEX denied to deliver the material on 4th August ,due to urgency our client went to FEDEX warehouse. But they were handed over only 3 packages out of 7 and were been told by FEDEX that they do not have other packages and excused saying the balance packages are in lying in India.

Till 8th of August we were chasing First Flight Marketing Executive and their Customer Service Department to know the status of the remaining short packages and on 8th of August we received a small email from First Flight that the short packages are been tracked which was arranged for delivery on 9th August 2010.

Due to the above, our client has faced a good loss in their Project and were unhappy towards the services rendered by courier.

Further, now look in to the further negligence of First Flight Courier , after several follow-ups and several telephonic talks we received our post shipment original documents , Invoice, Packing List, Exchange Control Copy, copy of Air Ways bill ( without having the details of Flight ) , copy of SDF and copy of FEDEX Manifest report on 3rd of September 2009 and after going through the documents we found that on the Exchange Control copy (COPY ATTACHED ) the details of consignor is totally wrong as well as our Import Export Code and AD Code which was of some other party while the other details of consignee, Invoice number and the value reflects of ours. After our several complaints till date they have not delivered the rectified original documents they have collected from us and inturn against same we have hold their payment which we assured to release on receipt of the correct documents but now they want us first to release the payment and then the documents shall be handed to us. Since they have made lot of mistakes , we are afraid to trust them and stated to deliver documents & collect the payment but they are arrogant to listen and stick to their terms.

Now, we being an exporter are responsible to submit correct documents to our Bank for futher clearance from RBI.We therefore would like to register our complaint and take necessary action against the Courier.

For your records we have copy & pasted the email of the Courier Co. below and the copy of the Shipping Bill is attached.

We await your reply and action at the earliest.
