Australia Post has confirmed that only the initial supply of express post satchels will be via a corporate outlet, as the MP Licensees will be exchanging the pre paid Toll satchels they currently supply, for the AP satchels that will now be their core product. After that it will be as existing with supply being from the LPO if that is where the MP drivers have been sourcing the stock. So the initial concerns being raised today are not as we heard. There may be other issues with Mail Plus yet to come, but supply being restricted is not one of them supposedly. LPOG executives are meeting with AP and Mail Plus on 20 May to "consult" on how we can work together to progress our combined businesses.
Lots of Licensees contacting LPOG about news from Mail Plus Licensees today. LPOG understands that at a Mail Plus Conference over the weekend, Mail Plus Licensees have been informed that they will be only able to deal with stock purchases from corporate outlets from now on.
This is not what was promoted by Australia Post or Mail Plus to LPOG. We have contact Post for urgent clarification of this news to seek facts at this stage.
