Through this program, the number of parcel lockers that Australia Post customers can use in Australia will double to more than 1,000, giving them greater choice in how they receive their online shopping and other parcel deliveries.
Australia Post’s latest Inside Australian Online Shopping eCommerce report revealed that online shopping grew almost 32 percent year over year during the 12 months to July 2021.
In order to meet the needs of the more than 9 million households who shop online, Australia Post customers will have more parcel locker locations and be able to use the lockers at 7-Eleven stores 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
These new locations are in addition to the many improvements Australia Post has launched already to offer more choices and better delivery experiences.
Australia Post Expansion Will Yield Over 1,000 Lockers at Local 7-Eleven Locations
More than 200 7-Eleven stores already have ParcelMate lockers installed, with 300 additional 7-Eleven locations to be added between now and the end of 2021. This is in addition to over 500 existing Australia Post parcel locker locations in the network.
Australia Post Executive General Manager Community & Consumer Nicole Sheffield said the partnership was timely given the growth in eCommerce and was all about giving customers more choice.
“Australia Post is delivering more parcels than ever before, with Australians showing us over the past year just how much they’ve embraced shopping online,” she said.
“This partnership with 7-Eleven gives our customers greater choice on the most convenient way to collect what they’ve bought, at the times and places that suit them, which is why expanding our locker network into 7-Eleven stores just makes sense.”
7-Eleven Australia General Manager – Product, Matt Keogh, said that providing consumers with choice and convenience continues to be a focus.
“Australians live pretty busy lives, and our focus is on making their everyday wonderfully easier,” he said.
“Being able to offer Australia Post customers the choice to collect their parcels in one of our stores, when and where it suits them, is convenience we are proud to partner with Australia Post to provide.”
Customers can sign up via Australia Post and select their preferred 7-Eleven parcel locker location for their delivery.
