Understand that AusPost are again going to temporarily halt parcel pickups from customers as from this Friday for 5 days.
Claim is it is so they can clear the backlog of parcels.
To my mind it may help clear the present backlog but only to create another one down the road.
28 September 2021
We’ll be pausing eParcel and Parcel Post pickups, collections and lodgements from eCommerce retailers across Greater Melbourne Metro operations only. The pause will last for five days.
Start: 12.01am Friday 1 October (AEST)
End: 12.01am Wednesday 6 October (AEST)
Collections from eCommerce retailers in regional Victoria and all other states will continue as normal.
Collections from Street Post Boxes across Victoria will be unaffected. All deliveries will continue (including on weekends) and our Post Offices will remain open for all usual business.
All letters, Express Post, StarTrack Premium, StarTrack Courier, Startrack Express, domestic and international letters remain unchanged across our network, as does processing for all international inbound and outbound.
