Phase 1 of the expansions of Post’s major parcel facilities in Melbourne (MPF) and Sydney (SPF) has been completed with the new equipment due to go live on 7 November 2014.
The Future Parcels Network program of which MPF and SPF are a part of is a $595 million capital program. The program will deliver major productivity and cost improvements. It is expected to double Post’s capacity to handle more than 320 million parcels per year nationwide by 2019.
Post parcel workers have played a big part in helping the Melbourne and Sydney parcel facilities expansions work. We wish CWU members in the expanded facilities well. Members will be fully supported by us in any issues in these facilities.
