Australia Post: our delivery people are working around the clock

Australia Post delivered more than 21 million parcels across the Black Friday/Cyber Monday period.

Online shopping in November beat last year’s record by more than 13 per cent, and underlining the boom in online shopping that COVID has generated, was up an incredible 76 per cent on November 2019. On average Australia Post delivered more than 2.3 million parcels every weekday across this longer sales period*, with around 800,000 delivered over the Black Friday weekend itself. 

Australia Post General Manager, Parcel & Express Services Ben Franzi said extended pre-Black Friday sales had completely transformed this year’s event, and Australians once again had taken advantage of the sales. 

“With many cyber sales starting sooner than last year people have been able to snap up online deals for longer than just those traditional four big days from Black Friday,” Mr Franzi said. 

We’re working hard in what’s still a challenging environment, with our delivery teams managing to get almost a million parcels a day to front doors across NSW alone on December 1 and December 2, and we’ve got our delivery people and processing around the country working around the clock, as we head into a busy Christmas.”  

Australia Post moved 15 per cent more air freight across the Cyber Weekend than last year, with 444 tonnes of parcels transported via 21 dedicated planes on the busiest day, Cyber Monday, which was also the biggest day for parcels entering the network with more than 2.8 million lodged.
