About This Report


The Postal Services industry was historically the main vehicle for communication in Australia. This monopoly on communications is long gone due to changes in technology. The industry is in a state of transition as participants adapt to a long-term decline in traditional mail volumes. The industry is dominated by Australia Post, Australia's largest logistics company and a monopoly provider of certain mail services. Other players in the industry are focused on third-party communications services, such as bulk mail-outs. These different entities are united by the delivery chain that begins with centralised collection and ends at the recipient.

Organisations in the industry pick up and deliver letters, documents and parcels, which usually weigh less than 30 kilograms. Pick-up is from predetermined collection points such as post offices and postal agencies, and excludes the activities of couriers. Organisations that operate the collection points and bulk mail houses are also included in the industry.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
