"Missing" Ammo Shipment

One of the big 2 shipping companies supposedly delivered a 1/2 case of 308 to my office thursday afternoon while I was out of town. I get home saturday evening and swing by our office and I cant find it. Our office is open 24/7/365, we never close, ever! Someone is always there, and usually several or more people are there at all hours of the day.

Apparenly, this deliveryman took the package to one room in the building, where 2 people were "on watch" that day. Which in and of itself was not out of the ordinary but, then whoever was in the room where the package was delivered would normally sign for the package. Not someone else in another room. And having 2 people there made it all the more unlikely that both were out of the room at the very same time that he delivered the package. Making having another employee in a different part of the building, who never actually saw the package, sign for it, odd. Very odd!

Now, Ive had dozens of shipments of ammo delivered this way, and the deliveryman this time was the "regular" deliveryman, so, why now? Why take this box? Doesn't add up either.

While its only $350, its annoying, to say the least. And I would love to catch a thief.

I paid by Visa, and purchased shipping insurance from the seller and was probably charged a week ago, maybe 10 days ago now.

Is there any recourse? File a complaint with the shipper? Any other ideas?

Are you accusing the delivery man? I think that's a long shot. These guys have good paying jobs. I think it's unlikely they risk it for a signed for package. Since the package was delivered on Thursday and you found it missing in Saturday probably another employee or office visitor or cleaning crew took it. Or it's under a desk some where.
I dont want to accuse anyone just yet, however, the part about suppssedly leaving the package in one room and then having someone in another part of the building sign for it, is all very unusual.

Its not under a desk anywhere, Ive looked.

There is no cleaning crew.

Or any visitors allowed in the building!

Our employees make substanstially more than the deliveryman does and in turn have much more to lose, on top of having been employed with us for decades! Its unlikely, though not impossible, that they are involved.

Which brings us back full circle to the deliveryman and his odd behavior!
If you are concerned about the delivery man contact the carriers regional office and ask for Loss Prevention information (Both FedEx and UPS have Field LP).

You have the right to know the time, location, and signature of said package being delivered.

Your office has no physical security open 24 hours?.....nobody had to let the person in?, no CCTV?, no vendor log?.....asking for trouble there.....

I know when and who signed for the package. One of the problems is, the person who signed for it never actually saw the package delivered, only the deliveryman. And she took his word for it because he was the regular deliveryman and she had no reason to doubt him.

However, i will take this up with loss prevention. Thanks for the heads up.

Well this is going to sound harsh but.....isn't the point of signing for something to accept the responsibility for it?

I don't think its harsh either, and yes, thats the point.

And in the future, now, Im sure she'll be more "responsible" and inquisitive.

Again, it was only $350 and Im not going to lose any sleep over it. It's more about the principle of the thing, not the money.
