People pay good money for their postal 'service'. A 'so called service' they are not receiving at a time when Aust Post (AP) is patting its executives on the back and handing themselves bonuses which must be for achieving the demolition of the postal service. It can be for no other reason.
It pays to have a good reputation:I don't see why AP needs to justify anything.
Letter demand is declining rapidly, lost half of the 2006 peak in 13-14 years or roughly 4%pa decline and increasing. By 2025 it will likely be 25% of the mid 2000's.
Higher density and residential should 3 x a week, lower density residential 2 x week.
If you want 5 days a week, get a PO Box.
Done, case closed, move on.
If AP just did it anyway without saying so, do we think anyone would actually notice?
If your industry sold equally deficient products would you get a bonus and would the company be free of criticism or customer reaction?
As for the PO box took four weeks for a letter to a PO Box Melbourne suburb to suburb last month.
Well actually no, if you are referring to letter mail, you are not paying good money, rather you are subsidised, alot.
By reference to PO is that the home delivery service will be curtailed over time and AP are just dragging the chain due to politics. Get it over, get to what should be happening 2-3 deliveries a week. No one would give a crap and you want more, get a PO Box. As for 6 days a week mail service, I'm sure they are very few and far between these days.
FYI I typed 6 day a week mail delivery into Google and all I found were postal companies world wide announcing cutting mail to 3 x week or every other day. USPS claims 70% reduction in mail since 1999. Today average of 3 letters per week per box, most of which is regarded as no urgent, bills, addressed junk mail etc.
By and large I've never had a issue with AP in the past of from OS. People here blame Emirates Post for delays and missing stuff, but I've rarely had issue with them either. Yes Christmas mail often arrives in mid Jan, not sure where the issue is there, but I've sent stuff home from here that arrived in 4-5 working days to Central Coast NSW. Recently mail order hampers AP said will be delivered on Tues and delivered the Wed before and ordered on Monday.
Aaron seems to have an issue with AP in Adelaide and others are commenting on Mel. Who knows? Melbourne has hardly been the example of how to do things right in 2020 so it may extend to mail services and people isolated so I can only take Mel issues with a grain of salt or now until some sort of normality returns to the economy in Vic. Yes do what Aaron does, complain for and get a refund. Cannot argue with that but is there a local issue.
Globally there are many industries suffering at the movement due to a rapid change in market. Try and buy bikes or parts at the moment? Or other non-team related exercise gear.
