Australia Post Christmas deadlines for customers as it braces for record deliveries

Australia Post is working around the clock to deliver parcels after a weekend of massive online sales and with a record holiday season looming.

Following Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, Monday is expected to be the biggest parcel delivery day on record with more than three million parcels set to be received.

Australia Post has already delivered more than 40 million parcels in November.

“Our people have worked incredibly hard all year, demonstrating agility and resilience to manage volumes we would traditionally have had months to prepare for,” Australia Post Executive General Manager Deliveries Rod Barnes said.

Barnes said Australia Post is hiring 5000 extra people and getting more delivery vehicles on the road to help with the Christmas postal rush.

“In a challenging year, we have continued to find ways to improve our service, with more than 60 new or repurposed facilities to support additional parcel processing and retail parcel pick up locations,” Barnes said.
