The PIAA/Australia Post roadshow in Perth

The Australia Post/PIAA national roadshow has rolled into Adelaide this morning after yesterday’s successful launch in Perth. 

Up close with Australia Post – Breakfast series allows local printers to engage directly with Mark Pollock, Australia Post’s general manager mail products, on the national carrier’s strategy for the future.

“The Perth breakfast went well, with over 50 members attending the events so far and some very good, fiery exchanges,” says PIAA CEO Andrew Macaulay. “I am thrilled that Printing Industries has been able to create this opportunity for direct engagement between our members and Australia Post, and that industry has come out and supported the initiative.”

Pollock spoke about recent initiatives to support the mail channel, and practical ways that print businesses can most efficiently and cost-effectively utilise various mail categories, products and services.

“Australia Post has openly shared their plans and some of the innovation soon to hit the market, and members have responded with robust and healthy discussion,” says Macaulay. “We have appreciated printers being upfront about the business challenges they have experienced as a result of the continued price increases, Printing Industries commends Australia Post for stepping up and beginning to re-engage with the industry.  We look forward to advancing this discussion with them.”

Printing Industries also facilitated a recent discussion between Peter Bass, Australia Post’s executive GM responsible for Mail and Letters, and three industry players. This panel interview is now available to view online at:
