We are getting an average total of 70 Amazon AU parcels a day, that's both Courier and Postie across our 20 postcode region. That's an average of just over 3 per postcode.

Conversely, we average about 600 Book Depository parcels per day and they come all the way from Swindon.

I guess the only way is up.

Can't wait to see how they handle their much-hyped "Prime"

Still quiet on the Amazon front. Not seen a great increase in parcels. APost is going from strength to strength now. Redundancy packages are now totally off the table as of yesterday night.

I dont understand why technology has not taken my job at this late stage or why Apost doesn't seem to be able to find itself a decent competitor.

BTW ..... Dominoes could be delivering your Amazon prime Parcels via Apost in the not too distant future. There are that few items they could easily handle a 12 hour delivery in Melbourne at least.

So prep yourself for Apost to take over Dominoes Pizzas..... I kid you not or at least a very close business relationship.

BTW Christine Holgate is now going to change all of the Trucks from Blue (Startrack) back to Red (Aus Post)..... and maybe give us a mid EBA wage rise.

I guess the Union can praise itself on seeing Ahmed off at least.


Funny innit, but now Ahmed is gone Apost is suddenly a very profitable institution once more..... The books have stopped being cooked and the future is all roses.

Amazon still haven't done the job properly. Marketplace stuff is never going to set the world alight, mainly because it just reflects poor Oz retail.

General lack of imagination. I worked out a model for wiping auspost's clock years back, but unless they are copying others Australian business seems very lacking in innovation.

For Ahmed Fahour it was never about saving money, it was all about making money.

That's why he was paid so much and made so much money for Oz post.

Remember, saving costs is finite, making money is infinite.

Under Ahmed all you got was how much Auspost was losing..... All of that was a lie, which has now been totally exposed. Twas a book cooking exercise with Startrack as the Vehicle.


Startrack, the means with which he was going to split Apost is now going to be fully absorbed..... and unionised

Thankfully he ran Startrack so cheap, that the underpaid undervalued employees behaved as underpaid and undervalued employees and made Startrack totally unreliable and in fact totally negligent. That's now changing.

I think you'll find in the future Coles delivery may well be taking Amazon items via Apost as well.


Christine Holgate has been spending a lot of time at the Brunswick West Victorian head office branch of the CEPU negotiating and mapping out a future direction........ Everyone is getting along real well at present, lots of cooperation at last.

And he was losing a lot at the beginning of his rule. No secrets there. But that was his job, to turn it around, and he did it, and it was money well spent.

Unfortunately the PM had to give him the flick because the shallow, narrow minds out there only looked at the salary figure, and couldn't process its worth.

One of the problems with the current government is they do not how to communicate economic concepts to the simple man on the street.

Good to see the union and company working together. Unlike a union to want to work on future directions. They must have been reading BE.
