Competitive New Rates for Australia Post

The 2018-19 WA wine industry agreement with Australia Post has been finalised.

The new agreement offers very competitive rates for wine producers to most destinations within WA and interstate. The contract now uses the eParcel service and producers must establish an eParcel account with Australia Post to access the contracted rates. Please contact Wines of WA at for assistance in doing so.

You can access the new rate schedule here and the eParcel guide book here.

Note that the new eParcel rates offer significantly reduced rates in comparison to the superseded parcel post service rates to most destinations, in particular to all capital cities and major regional centres. In some instances, rates to country areas will have increased. 

As previously, there are two zones: W0 for Perth Metro lodgements and; W2 for south-west lodgements. Additionally, there are now 2 price bands for each zone as outline below:

Band A - for businesses sending more than 1000 parcels per year:
