Last year Australia Post set themselves a new record and delivered 52 million packages around the holiday period.

Border closures have a big impact on passenger flights and fewer flights mean fewer packages can be sent around the country.

“We're encouraging people everywhere to start preparing early particularly if they start sending overseas,” said Colin Hindle Head of National Network Implementation at Australia Post.

Restrictions and contact tracing also have a large impact on Australia Post’s ability to send more mail.

If we have a case in one of our facilities, pending if they are considered a close contact or casual contact, that can take down anywhere from 20 people to a whole shift of 150 people,” said Mr Hindle.
