2020 – the year of the delivery!
This year seems like the longest and shortest year of all time, and we know what you're thinking: how it is already November?!
Thinking of Christmas gifts might seem a bit daunting after such an exhausting year, but that’s where convenience and ease of online shopping comes into play. With working from home, lockdowns and the overall impacts of COVID-19, the ability to bring a joy directly to your door – or that of a loved one - has become even more special and thoughtful.
You could even say 2020 has been the year of the postie, with online shopping exploding by around 70 per cent during the pandemic. In fact, a whopping average of 1.57 million parcels were delivered each day across Australia in August 2020!
"We've almost had 10 years put into one month," said Australia Post CEO Christine Holgate.

Australia Post Executive Manager of Business, Gary Starr suggests to “Plan, and plan early.”
“It’s weeks away to those Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales in November that then leads into Christmas,” Starr said.
“We will be publishing Christmas cut-off dates in the next week - both to our retailers and merchants and clearly to the public...(the cut-off) will be late November to early December.”
