There has been a lot of interest and questions raised in the last few months about the future of Australia Post, and the LPO network. As Licensees we are in the hot seat, and have a very big personal stake in keeping the LPO network strong and commercially viable. We need Politicians to hear our voice. The Government is the only shareholder of Australia Post, and the government should be looking to have this government business enterprise trade in a way that protects the interests of all the stakeholders. The Australian public are the owners of this government business enterprise, and ultimately it is the public, the consumers, who should be provided with the greatest benefit. 

LPOs Third Party Ready - welcome all fair paying interest

Tearing down Australia Post's parcel monopoly

The Country Alliance party says that an overhaul of the Australia Post network to tear down its monopoly on delivering small parcels being done cheaper, faster and more reliable.

Where is the logic?

Australia Post spends a lot of time and money on spin, talking about the need to compete with the rest of the parcel contractors in the market place, to keep pace with the changing needs of the business.

Let’s explore this spin. Australia Post has the biggest footprint in Australia. They have more than 4,400 outlets all over Australia. They would win hands down if push came to shove, and the only factor in the equation was position. It would seem that Australia Post is under the misinformation that position is the only factor in the equation. How wrong they are!

How Much Are You Being Underpaid?

LPOG members have identified several prime areas that Licensees are being grossly underpaid, and this claim form demonstrates just how the underpayments included in this claim, effect the income of the average

Birthday Teddy News From Kipper

We like most of us I guess stock the Birthday Teddy.
Had a customer come in yesterday with an order form from “Birthday Teddy “ with a different order form to ours showing special reduced prices and a free gift. It had no where for us to action her order. I asked where she got the form from and she said she received it with a previous order. We apologised and said that we were unable to process her order.
