Australia Post and New Zealand post have signed an agreement to form a partnership aiding markets on both sides of the Tasman Sea.

An age-old rivalry exists between the two nations but this agreement is likely to benefit both parties in increasing access to both valuable markets as well as customer data, online benefits and supply chain logistical advantages.

Those benefits will not just have an effect regionally either with Richard Umbers of Australia Post believing the long term ramifications can be global.

“Joining forces with New Zealand Post enables both organisations to grow our business from Australasia to the rest of the world,” the Executive General Manager for Parcels and Express said. “This supports both companies’ ambitions to grow international markets and will greatly benefit our customers looking to access those markets.”

It is the express and parcel aspect of Australia Post which the New Zealand counterparts will benefit from most initially too, with customer service and prices being improved as a consequence.

“New Zealand businesses will have access to the full range of Australia Post marketing and customer data,” General Manager of Business Development and Strategy, Sohail Choudhry said.

“Not only can we offer end-to-end supply chain solutions into Australia, we can help customers grow their market across the Tasman.”
