Australia Post has a partnership with China Post called Sai Cheng Logistics which it hopes will be the conduit to its long- term aim of becoming a more significant player in Asia-Pacific logistics.
Australia Post already has alliances in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, the United States and Britain.
Australia Post has US$91.6 million available for investment it will concentrate on improving warehousing and electrical systems in support of logistics operations.
Australia Post’s managing director Graeme John said: ‘Our growth in parcels and logistics is partly driven by online trading.’
Anyone who has experience with Australia Post will testify to the fact that it is entrepreneurial, efficient and always looking for ways to expand. So it is likely that it will expand into China.
