Australia Post tests Saturday Metro delivery service in Melbourne
Australia Post is now offering Saturday delivery in Melbourne, expanding a trial of the courier’s Metro service.
Customers purchasing online from merchants such as Myer, Big W, Super Retail Group, Adore Beauty, Frank Green, and Kogan on Fridays can now receive their orders the following day.
“An extra delivery day is great news for consumers in Melbourne, reinforcing our commitment to providing them with greater certainty, simplicity, and speed when they order online – elements we recognise are crucial for online shoppers,” said Gary Starr, executive GM for parcel, post, and e-commerce services at Australia Post.
“In less than six months since the launch of Australia Post Metro, we have successfully delivered more than one million parcels and we anticipate an exponential increase in this figure as demand for this product grows and new retail partners come on board.”
Currently, Australia Post Metro is available in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Gold Coast.
