Aust Post will pause parcel deliveries to get on top of backlog

Many online shoppers will face delays in getting their parcels when Australia Post stops pickups for three days so it can process a backlog.

Collections from digital retailers in NSW, the ACT and Victoria will pause from 7am on Saturday, September 4, to 7am on Tuesday, September 7. 


"This temporary measure will allow us to responsibly clear record parcel volumes in parts of our network impacted by COVID-19," Australia Post said.

"The safety of our people is our highest priority.

"This will help ensure volumes are kept to a safe and manageable level."

Collections from online retailers in other states and the Northern Territory will continue as normal.

Thankfully Express Post, Premium and Startrack Express services and collections from post offices will not be affected.
