Australia Mail - information about carrier

The Australian Postal Corporation, operating as Australia Post (or AusPost), is the government organisation enterprise that supplies postal services in Australia. The head workplace of Australia Post is located in Bourke Street, Melbourne, which likewise acts as a post office.

Australia Post is the successor of the Postmaster-General's Department (PMG), which was established at Federation in 1901 as the follower to the colonial post services. In 1975, the PMG was eliminated and its postal functions were taken control of by the Australian Postal Commission. The company's present name and structure were embraced in 1989 as part of a procedure of corporatization.

Prior to colonial control of mail began in 1809, mail was usually handed down by ad hoc arrangements made in between transporters, storekeepers and settlers. These arrangements were versatile and depended on the cooperation of the nation individuals. It was common for early inhabitants to ride lots of miles out of their way to deliver neighbors' mail that had been collected from casual distribution points.

The very first organization of postal service in Australia commenced in 1809 with the appointment in Sydney of the very first Postmaster of New South Wales. He was an English ex-convict, Isaac Nichols, who took the post operating from his house in George Street, Sydney. His main task was to organize parcels and letters showing up by ship, to prevent the chaos of people hurrying aboard ships as quickly as they got here at Sydney's wharves. Nichols would select up the mail and post a list of receivers outside his house. He would promote in the Sydney Gazette the names of all those who got mail. Receivers paid a fixed price of one shilling per letter to collect mail from Nichols' home, with parcels costing more depending upon how heavy they were. VIP addressees were accorded individual shipment by Nichols.

The Postal Act of 1825 permitted the guv to repair postage rates and select postmasters outside Sydney, making it possible for the first arranged postal service. Letter shipments began in 1828 and posting boxes initially appeared in 1831. Stamps were not required in those days, as the addressee paid for the letter, not the sender.

Postal services grew throughout the Australian colonies as they were established. A routine overland service between Sydney and Melbourne, Port Phillip District started in 1838. Likewise in 1838, the first pre-paid "stamped" letter sheets were presented in Sydney. By 1849, consistent postal rates were established by contract in between the colonies. Pre-paid adhesive stamps were introduced in the 1850s. Victoria was the first to make a prepayment by stamps required in 1852. The regular monthly steamship sea-mail to the United Kingdom was established in 1856. The separate colonies signed up with the Universal Postal Union in 1891.

Following the federation in 1901, the colonial mail systems were combined into the Postmaster-General's Department (PMG). This body was accountable for telegraph and domestic telephone operations along with postal mail. Airmail service was introduced in 1914. The world's very first large-scale mechanical mail sorting system was introduced in Australia (according to Australia Post), and operational in the Sydney GPO in 1967. This coincided with the introduction of the current system of 4-digit postal codes in Australia.

One of these was the Australian Postal Commission, trading as Australia Post. It continues to trade as Australia Post.

Under changes to the APC Act that came into result in March 2008, quarantine evaluation officers of a state or territory are licensed to request Australia Post to open for examination packets and parcels sent from interstate which they believe may include quarantine product. The legislation also authorizes Australia Post to get rid of from the mail short articles that are presumed of being rip-off mail.

The 200th anniversary of postal services was commemorated in 2009.

Responding to competitive pressures, Australia Post continued to expand its item and service range in 2019, having actually bought extensive technology-based infrastructure programs. It operates in 3 core locations: letters and associated services; retail product and firm services; and parcels and logistics. It has a number of subsidiaries and joint ventures, including Sai Cheng Logistics International-a joint-venture logistics company established with China Post in 2005.

Australia Post operates routine mail shipment as well as an express/courier service through Messenger Post (Now trading as Startrack Courier). It provides mail every day of the week.

Australia Post is self-funding and utilizes its properties and resources to produce earnings, which can be reinvested in the company or returned as dividends to its sole shareholder, the Commonwealth Government. Under its community service obligations, Australia Post is committed to supplying an accessible, reliable and inexpensive letter service for all Australians anywhere they live.

Under the Australian Postal Corporation Act 1989, letters up to 250 grams are booked to Australia Post - other people and organisations can just carry them if they charge 4 times the fundamental postage rate. All of the other goods and services supplied by Australia Post are offered in completely competitive markets and, in 2005 - 06, almost 90% of the corporation's revenue (from common activities before net interest and tax) originated from offering services and products in competitive markets.

Australia Post runs in 3 core markets: letters and associated services; firm services and retail product; and parcels and logistics that cover both domestic and international markets.
