Primary Sorting of Parcels – where we are at 24 Jun 2019

Sadly, no joy for those LPOs that provide a primary sort on behalf of the delivery arm of Australia Post, under the reformed payment scheme.

Since the inception of LPOG in 2013 we have endeavoured to bring the LPO Agreement to the point where Licensees are paid fairly for what they actually do. A bug-bear for many years past has been by reference to the costs and efforts in dealing with parcels, exacerbated by the advent of on-line shopping. 

On this theme our involvement with Post and payment reform (especially since Nicole Sheffield took on the project circa Sept 2018) was premised by an acceptance that a reduced rate letter handling fee (MMF payment) made better sense and could be agreed upon, as the flip-side presented by Post was for a lodgement or delivery scan payment to be paid for all work, on a per item basis, for parcel handling by Licensees. We agreed to work with AP to that intent and LPOG has been so engaged for many months on this project. 
 
As with any issue across the whole network anomalies are thrown up. As most of you would be aware, over the years Licensees who conduct Primary Sorts have had ever increasing workloads due to the ever-increasing numbers of parcels coming through the system.
