Well, regardless what company you choose, you will always run into issues locally.Bad news, UPS is used for shipping at least in Germany. Found my packet on my front door when I came home. Possibly lying there for several days. I also got no shipping confirmation so I'm glad that I live in a small village where nothing gets stolen.Regarding the usage of UPS for some shipments here: i hope this company will not be tasked with the shipment of individual orders in Europe too?
I myself had - several - bad experiences with this company, to the point that i now try to avoid them at all costs.
Some of these experiences include: delaying shipments by days by sending them to the wrong state, causing problems with customs declarations, unhelpful customer support and simply leaving parcels worth several hundreds of Euros at my doorstep.
Not that they could cause problems with my pandora until the far future since i am a batch 2 pre-orderer and i do not intend to upgrade
Some have issues using DHL, some with FedEx, some with UPS.
Using multiple companies to ship out the Pandoras will just add costs (the more packages you send with ONE shipping company, the cheaper it is for you) and more work.
UPS has been the most reliable of all of the companies I tried out and also the easiest one to handle for insurance if a package gets lost.
One package this year didn't arrive, even though the UPS driver had a signature, it was not from the receiver.
Took me one week to get the insurance money.
With DHL, it takes weeks - and as soon as they get any signature, they don't really care about insurance anymore...
