Post has purchased 3 Mercedes vans and fitted them out as a mobile unit to reach business customers at events, markets and other large gatherings.
The vans are operating in Queensland, NSW and Victoria.
Apparently they are not selling postal products (stamps and envelopes) but informing business customers on how they can improve their postal options.
Customers have the ability to sign up to business solutions on the spot or be forwarded further information.
The union is working through OHS concerns and staffing with Post.
While we support initiatives that bring new business to Post we are concerned about the creation of two different entities, i.e. red Post and blue Post and the potential for asset stripping and privatisation of one or both in the future.
