What is Parcel Connect?

Parcel Connect is a convenient alternative to postal or traditional courier services, providing customers with parcel pick-up or delivery services via a network of outlets across Australia.

For parcel pick-up, customer's parcels are dropped off at an agent, if they are not home to receive them. An agent holds the parcels until the customer collects them.

For delivery services, customers can send parcels by buying a label online, attaching it to a parcel and dropping it off at an agent for collection by Fastway Couriers.

For each parcel dropped off or picked up, the agent is paid a commission or fee.
