Australia Post Testing 24-Hour Parcel Pickup

It’s a major hassle for online shopping: you’ve ordered something but then you have to sort time to pick it up from the post office. That might get a little simpler with plans for “24 hour parcel lockers” being tested in a new concept post office.

Australia Post announced plans for a new “concept store” in the Brisbane CBD which will open before the end of the year. One of its features will be a “24/7 zone with parcel lockers where customers can pick up their parcel at any time”. There will also be dedicated space for shipping goods sold via eBay.

It’s not yet clear how (or if) the lockers will handle goods that need signatures, or what the associated charges will be. However, for anyone who can’t easily get deliveries at home or work, it’s an interesting idea. Thanks Stephen for the pointer!
