When I have bought items by phone, they often quote an "Express Post" rate and guarantee "delivery overnight". Experience has taught me that general mail is just as fast (and once or twice may have been quicker) because the fine print mentions "between major centres only".If mail got to where it was going in a timely manner, nobody would use the "express" option.
Delaying the mail encourages people to use express, and so auspost make more money.....
Pure business. .....and a fairly monopolised one at that...
