Our Aus Post delivery woman is amazing. She opens the side gate, pats our dog and safely puts our packages on our deck. I also find the parcel post satchels to be good value - you can send 5kg for around $17. That said a jump from 70c to $1 is exhorbitant. Sounds like they're actively discouraging people from sending letters.

Some people might find this interesting... The "Toll Group" has just been bought by Japan Post. Apparently it is very lucrative.

It means I will be looking for alternatives.
AusPost is so rubbish (here anyway) and I refuse to pay more for less.

I read a story about the complaints from people about Aus Post closure on NYE.
Is it not common knowledge that they are always closed NYE? They do this due to the amount of overtime etc in the Christmas period.
Anyway, today is the day.

since email/social media ... people simply do not send letters anymore.
Companies post only 1/2 or less the number of commercial mail (bills/statements etc), companies do not post/deliver catalogues ... the number of actual letters is down a staggering percent.
But still, Australia Post must deliver to each house every day ... so the costs have not gone down commesurate with the volume of postage.
Yes the number of packages has gone up - but many packages are delivered by courier/private delivery, so Australia Posts overall revenue has dropped a huge amount.
Its really not that surprising that with the changing circumstances of letter delivery, the costs are going up a huge amount.
I feel for Australia Post. Their business is changing and they need to change with it.
