Australia Post has revealed its new parcel delivery center in Dubbo in Australia, which replaces the temporary delivery center at Jannali Road.
The center has more than 1,485m2 of internal space and features a straight-line conveyor through the center of the building for processing parcels. With more space, the parcel delivery center is expected to assist the network in meeting current parcel delivery demands with a more streamlined experience for drivers to get in and out of the facility and back on the road to customers.
This week, Australia Post also opened new distribution centers in Butler, Western Australia, and Camden Park, South Australia. Butler’s distribution center is intended to accommodate the region’s rapid growth and increase in small parcel volume as more people shop online; the Camden Park center consolidates a number of properties to improve turnaround times. Between December 2022 and May 2023, 30 new or renovated letter and parcel centers have opened across Australia.
Rod Barnes, executive general manager of network operations at Australia Post, said, “The new parcel delivery center is a central part of Australia Post’s commitment to improving service in Dubbo and investing in the community. We have designed the new center with efficiency and simplicity in mind to help turnaround times and get items to customers’ doors as quickly as possible. The additional space has also allowed us to better support e-commerce customers and their shoppers in the Dubbo area as we can now accept and process parcels faster into the center.”
