International Mail Services to Australia

In News by Alan Horton

Australia open for international mail

It may surprise some to learn that the Australian economy is the 12th largest in the world. With the UK representing the 7th largest trading partner of Australia, the statistical proof is there that the distance separating the two countries is no barrier to business.

With a rapidly growing population of 24+ million and major cities like Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, Australia is a place UK businesses desire to export to.

With a common language, many ancestral and cultural links (e.g. TV programmes, cricket and rugby), Australia treats the UK export market with warmth and (often) plenty of banter! With Australians saying direct mail is more likely to lead to a purchasing decision than either e-mail marketing or tele-marketing, the time is ripe to start exploring international mail options to this attractive market.

Facts about mail in Australia

Here are some facts about mail in Australia:

  • Mail volumes – Between 2008 and 2013 mail volumes dropped 5.3% per annum and will continue to fall in the future, but there is still a healthy demand for direct mail
  • Postal points – There are 10+ million postal points in Australia [1]
  • Postboxes – There are 15,000+ post boxes in Australia [1]
  • Pricing zone – Australia is in world zone 2 for mail
  • Universal price – About 2.8 million Australian postal points are rural with many in remote locations, but a universal mailing price policy operates [1]
