The rise of personal deliveries to work addresses is on the increase, which is why employers such as banks, universities and even government departments, are cracking down on this and even banning them
The Times this week reported that several big banks, including HSBC, Citigroup and JP Morgan, have banned these types of delivery.
They say these personal items now account for between 30% and 40% of all incoming post and they are increasing by as much as 20% each year.
A number of alternative options are now being offered. These include lockers in shops and petrol stations run by the likes of Amazon, InPost, and CollectPlus, which allows their customers to have items delivered to newsagents, shops and supermarkets in its network so commuters can pop in on their way home.
Another company, Doddle, has opened collection points in or near train stations.
It looks like this perk, which allows people to receive items they need whilst still at work, may now be coming to end end for some.

It was a very special delivery for two supermarket delivery drivers as they
embarked on an emergency booze run from Carlisle to a wedding in
Scotland. Asda booze run photo Asda staff at Kingstown smartened up themselves
and the van for the dash
Asda head office was contacted by the distraught mother-of-the-bride on
Thursday after the alcohol supplier for the wedding which was taking
place in Dumfries had let them down. Bosses at the supermarket giant
reassured her and pledged to deliver £1,000 of alcohol to the Dumfries
venue by the afternoon. And so it was Asda in Carlisle, which was called upon
to save the day.
In the spirit (obvious pun) of the event, store managers Aaron Rigg and Neil
Kilgour ditched their usual green uniforms in favour of more formal attire, and
even the van itself was adorned with festive green ribbons tied to its wing
mirrors and stretched down to the front.
A spokeswoman admitted they would have liked to decorate the vehilce further,
but the van still had a 75-mile round trip to Dumfries along a the motorway.
This is a first for us: to go to such lengths, in this style, for a
customer to receive their shopping delivery, she said. Without
this, their wedding would become a dry wedding very quickly.

London will trial out-of-hours freight deliveries from early 2014. The
Mayors office and Transport for London are working with the London
boroughs in a bid to reduce the capitals congestion problem. They aim to
explore the idea that many more deliveries could be made out od busy hours.
Out-of-hours deliveries were trialled during London 2012 Olympic Games with
great success and transport companies have been asking the Government to
introduce it on a more permanent basis.
Representatives made up from TfL, key boroughs, retailers, London Councils, FTA
and RHA have formed a new consortium - aimed at looking at how out-of-hours
deliveries can be carried out more often in the longer term without causing
unnecessary disruption to residents.
Jack Semple, Director of Policy at the Road Haulage Association (RHA) said
It is right to recognise the continuing progress made by the haulage
industry and its suppliers in making operations safer and more efficient and
that many factors are out-with the control of HGV and van operators.
