Business Delivery Solutions to Australia

International Mail To Australia

In terms of landmass, Australia is the sixth-largest country in the world. Yet when it comes to population and economy it is much lower down the list and outside the top 20 countries based on both importing and exporting statistics. Due to close historical and cultural ties for Australia and the UK though, there is strong trade between the two countries.

A large volume of mail and parcels are sent to Australia every day, with the country offering plenty of opportunities for businesses looking to expand overseas. Whether you need to send a parcel to Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, or other places down under, at Whistl our international parcel delivery offers a reliable business delivery management solution to get your items to their destination on time.

The UK is Australia’s fifth highest two-way trading partner, with the total value of goods and services shipped in both directions totaling around A$27,462 million. On the whole, it's most popular imports included passenger and goods vehicles, computers, gold, telecom equipment and more.

The Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping Index revealed that in 2018 Australia shipped 864 million parcels.
