Christmas lodgement dates for deliveries within Australia
In the lead up to the traditionally busy peak period, Australia Post has released their dates earlier than before to help plan for what will be our biggest and most unpredictable period to date. Australia Post are recommending all items are lodged by the following dates for delivery within Australia by Christmas:
Parcel Post – Saturday 12th December 2020
Express Post – Saturday 19th December 2020
StarTrack Premium – Saturday 19th December 2020
Christmas lodgement dates for sending overseas
Due to the changing nature of both air linehaul capacity and delivery services in destination countries this year, you will notice we recommend sending International Christmas gifts early, with some lodgement deadlines for mail and parcels heading overseas to metro areas of major cities required as early as mid-November for some destinations.
You can find the last lodgement dates for all our international destinations listed on www.auspost.com.au/christmas and I encourage you to use this information to set delivery expectations with your customers early. For both domestic and international, items sent after these dates will be delivered as quickly as possible, but it will be difficult to get them to their destinations by Christmas.
