Dear Sir/Madam,

RE: Collection of Parcel

This is to inform you that a parcel addressed to you from Sweden was attempted in delivery at your home last Tuesday, DD/MM/YYYY, at 3 pm but no one was available to receive it. Hence, the parcel is stored at our Collection Centre at Parcel World.

You are requested to collect your parcel on any business working day from 10 am to 5 pm on DD/MM/YYYY. If you request someone else to collect on your behalf, please submit an authorization letter. Failure to comply with these collection terms may cause forfeiture or disposal of your parcel.

Please do not hesitate to call us for further assistance on this matter.

Thank you for using Parcel World for your delivery needs.

Yours sincerely,

Jonas Robinson
