Australia Post is warning anyone wishing to send gifts by Standard Parcel Post in time for Christmas to get to the post office as soon as possible.
The deadline has arrived for anyone who wants to send gifts by Standard Parcel Post in time for Christmas.
Australia Post says any Christmas presents that aren’t released on Monday will need to be sent by express mail, with the deadline being December 20 – or December 15 for WA and NT.
For most places in Australia, the deadlines for packages to reach relatives and friends before Christmas Day are December 13 for Parcel Post and December 20 for Express Post.
Australia Post’s Rod Barnes said the company is expected to surpass last December’s delivery record of more than 52 million packages, with more than three million a day reaching customers on busiest days.
âWe know that a lot of people did their Christmas shopping early during these big online sales and as a result we have delivered over 2.3 million packages every day of the week,â he said on Monday. .
“But for those who have not yet had the chance to finalize their gifts, we do everything we can to give them the best chance of arriving, in particular by delivering on weekends and until the early evening if necessary, until Christmas Eve. “
To give people as much time as possible to send gifts, more than 380 post offices have extended their hours of operation across the country.
