Australia Post launches next-day delivery service
Australia Post has introduced a new next-day delivery service – Australia Post Metro – to prepare for the upcoming peak online and gifting season.
Australia Post says the Metro service is designed to provide retailers and their customers with speed and more certainty during their online shopping experience.
The service has launched in metropolitan Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane, and will be expanded to new locations over the coming months.
Only selected retailers can use this service at present, but more will be added in the near future.
Paul Graham, Australia Post Group CEO and MD said the flexibility and reliability that next-day delivery offered customers was becoming increasingly important.
“We already have some of the country’s largest retailers using the Australia Post Metro service covering the lifestyle, fashion, beauty and FMCG space, with more retailers coming online every month. This new service provides a more agile, flexible delivery option as we head into our busiest time of year.”
