Australia Post under fire for package mishandling after video goes viral

Australia Post’s courier service is under fire after a video emerged of delivery drivers throwing packages in a carpark.

People who live in the area said it wasn’t the first time they’d seen it happen.

The video shows Star Track delivery drivers at a McDonald’s carpark in Perth’s north tossing packages and parcels onto the bitumen.

Almost half a million people have already viewed the video online, that was shot by Michelle Shoosmith yesterday in Currambine.

“They just started flinging parcels out of one van onto the ground. Things were cartwheeling, bouncing,” she said.

Outraged, she posted it on Facebook.

“I was like oh my goodness. People need to see what they’re doing to their belongings,” Ms Shoo-smith said.

“They could be doing damage. There could be phones, laptops. There were some pretty sizeable items bouncing around the carpark.”

More packages were spotted piled up at the Ellenbrook shops.

Residents said it wasn’t the first time Star Track couriers had met up in the carpark, with half a dozen drivers gathering there once or even twice a week to swap parcels.

Another witness Michael said the incident it wasn’t a once off.

“I’ve watched them over there quite a few times,” he said.

“I think it’s disgraceful. Disgraceful.”

Australia Post — which owns Star Track — has apologised, saying its customers deserve better.

It’s investigating what happened.
