Why COVID-19 may cause delivery delays

Health and safety 

New COVID-19 health and safety regulations apply to all workplaces worldwide.
We’re doing our bit to keep the community safe and prevent the virus from spreading – and this has meant changing how we do things. Social distancing within our processing facilities means we can’t always move items as quickly as we would like.

Fewer passenger flights 

We usually rely on passenger flights to transport our parcels, but many domestic and international routes are currently suspended. Remaining routes have much lower frequencies.

International factors 

Deliveries to and from overseas depend on postal and delivery services in other countries. 

  • Restrictions and operational constraints are causing delays in most countries.
  • Some countries are not currently accepting parcels. 
  • Fewer international flights mean some items may be delayed.
  • Items may be held longer than usual by Australian and overseas customs authorities.
