Parcel Lockers

Parcel lockers for home

As members will be aware your national office has been pushing Australia Post to redefine the humble letterbox.

An Post, the Irish postal provider are the latest proactive postal organisation to introduce a parcel locker for people’s homes. An Post intends to roll out 80,000 such receptacles in the next 12 months.

A trial of the personal locker in Dublin recently was a huge success.

The move follows successful trials in Germany by DHL and is an acknowledgement that online shoppers want parcels delivered directly to them and not drive to another location to pick up an article bought online.

While we have no wish to run Australia Post’s business for them, we feel that an opportunity is being missed - one that could benefit members’ long term job security.

We have again placed the issue on the agenda at a National Post Operations Network meeting and Post has committed to take the concept to those internally who are in a position to have it occur.
