Ritardi? Ancora una volta grazie POSTE

ARI Nazionale -

Ci giungono da più parti segnalazioni di ritardi nella consegna di radiorivista di gennaio 2022.

Ancora una volta siamo costretti a ribadire la nostra estraneità a questi disagi poichè RR viene regolarmente chiusa la metà del mese precedente (nel caso specifico il 15 dicembre 2021) e puntualmente consegnata in tipografia che dopo 4-5 gioni di lavorazione provvede a consegnarla a Poste Italiane per la spedizione.

Abbiamo inoltrato ovviamente l'ennesimo reclamo a Poste Italiane per questo sistematico e intollerabile disservizio e l'unica evasiva risposta che ci è giunta è che la situazione emergenziale dovuta alla Pandemia ha "decimato" la presenza degli operatori addetti allo smistamento e alla consegna della corrispondenza.

Ci sentiamo comunque in dovere di scusarci con tutti i Soci anche se obiettivamente incolpevoli di questi disagi. E possiamo assicurare che sono nuovamente allo studio metodi e vettori alternativi per la consegna della rivista.
