Interesting! ASOS.com have provided a page to that customers can access to find about any delivery updates that may impact their orders, so customers in the UK and international can check for any issues that may affect delivery.
This is good as it is more likely that locals in the area (for example Russia, see above) will have a better idea of whether the cause for the delay may impact delivery, than ASOS customer services. And customers can self-service themselves.
