Future Freight Networks : Yearbook 2013
10 COMPANY PROFILE X COMPANY PROFILE The economic landscape is experiencing a time of rapid change, enormous growth and untold potential. Australians’ buying habits have transformed, and your business has had to evolve. At Australia Post, we are evolving too. With more than 200 years at the forefront of technology, we are embracing the digital space and investing in infrastructure to ensure we have the ability to connect the digital economy with the physical world. We are bridging the physical and digital divide by shifting from being a mail company, delivering letters, to a parcels company that enables the digital economy in Australia. Australia Post is helping to power online shopping by being the connection point between more than one million small businesses and their customers. Our unrivalled logistics network, covering every corner of the country, allows us to dispatch millions of parcels each day – 70 per cent of which are generated by an online transaction. We deliver up to 100 million mail items each week to around 11 million addresses across Australia. Our commitment to delivering for the future has meant investing billions into new services that help Australians buy and sell online. We recently announced our $2 billion acquisition of Qantas’s 50 per cent interest in StarTrack. This historic agreement will enable Australia Post to even further respond to the growth in eCommerce by offering significant express freight capabilities that complement our international and domestic parcels business. We’re also investing in our capacity to offer Australian consumers, your customers, greater choice and convenience in how they receive the items they buy online. We’re offering extended opening hours across many of our 4500 retail outlets, and have introduced innovative Parcel Lockers with 24/7 access. These Parcel Lockers enable customers to collect parcels when it suits them, day or night. There are currently 50 of these Parcel Lockers located across the country, and we have plans to roll out a further 200 over the next two years. In addition to our network, our extensive services offer choice, flexibility and speed. Whether you need to get your product across the city, or across the globe, we provide end-to-end, reliable solutions. At Australia Post, we will continue to innovate and evolve to suit the ever- changing marketplace, holding firm our position as the trusted partner of choice for online businesses and your customers. We will continue to invest in delivery and logistics solutions that meet the needs of your business, and our commitment to helping you grow your business will remain unchanged – we are dedicated to delivering for Australian eCommerce.
