Due to current parcel volume in the Auspost Parcel Network, some customers may experience delays in shipping. Australia Post has released an updated statement which can be read below, or on their website.
Auspost Coronavirus Impacts
We are currently experiencing delivery delays due to a high volume of parcels in our network.
We are doing everything possible to keep delivering during the Coronavirus pandemic. Most of our Post Offices are still open, while our posties and drivers are working to get your parcels to you.
However, the challenges presented by the pandemic mean there are delays as our business adopts additional safety measures to protect our people and customers. Other factors contributing to delays include fewer domestic flights, international delays and increased volumes as more people start shopping online.
These delays can be up to a few days, and we ask that you bear with us during this challenging time. Thank you for your support and patience.
