We have a contracted Eparcel service which is a premium business service meaning you pay slightly more than at the post office in some cases but your goods are given priory over the rest of the network. This can at time be a huge advantage as loads squeeze the Australia post network.

An example of this was during covid lock downs we were sending on average 90 parcels per day with a max 7 day turnaround while standard service labels were sitting for weeks.
