Australia Processing Delays in Effect – October 2, 2020

The Postal Service™ received notice that Australia Post is experiencing processing delays in Perth due to an influx of volume that was rerouted there from Melbourne while it was under stage 4 lockdown status.

Australia Post is taking aggressive steps to address the issue, however, customers may experience temporary delays on mail items destined to these areas until the volume is cleared.

Furthermore, the stage 4 lockdown status in Melbourne has lifted and the rerouting of additional volume from Melbourne to Perth has ceased.

The Postal Service is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to update customers until the situation returns to normal.
