Delivery & Mail collection schedule


Courier service should be used for Metro, Intra-State, Interstate and International bookings, when your package is time critical or you want to track delivery.

Ensure your package is clear of logos, old addresses or old bar codes, as this may cause your package delivery not to reach the correct destination.

Use the online booking system to organise parcel delivery as this will provide the relevant address and bar-code labels. Ensure outgoing and return address information including contact numbers are included on your parcel. If you have more than one parcel ensure that each parcel is labelled with this information.

Refer Customer Contact Guide for size and weight limits.
