Australia Post and 7-Eleven Australia have partnered to offer customers more choice where they pick up their parcels with access to free all-hours parcel lockers at 7-Eleven stores across the country. 

The latest partnership doubles the number of Australia Post parcel locker locations to more than 1,000 to help meet the needs of the more than nine million households who shop online.

The 24/7 service launches across more than 200 7-Eleven stores where 7-Eleven’s ParcelMate lockers are already installed, with another 300 7-Eleven stores to be added for Australia Post deliveries by the end of 2021.

Australia Post executive general manager for community and consumer, Nicole Sheffield said the partnership was timely given the growth in ecommerce.

“Australia Post is delivering more parcels than ever before, with Australians showing us over the past year just how much they’ve embraced shopping online,” she said.

“This partnership with 7-Eleven gives our customers greater choice on the most convenient way to collect what they’ve bought, at the times and places that suit them, which is why expanding our locker network into 7-Eleven stores just makes sense.”

7-Eleven Australia general manager for product, Matt Keogh, said that providing consumers with choice and convenience continues to be a focus.

“Being able to offer Australia Post customers the choice to collect their parcels in one of our stores, when and where it suits them, is convenience we are proud to partner with Australia Post to provide,” he said.

Customers can sign up via Australia Post and select their preferred 7-Eleven parcel locker location for their delivery.
