With face masks becoming mandatory in Melbourne last week, an aussie shipping service experienced a record breaking day of deliveries in the city after partnering with Aussie Pharma Direct to urgently deliver the first Aussie made P2 quality masks.
Australia’s first 100 per cent carbon neutral shipping service has partnered with Aussie Pharma Direct to urgently deliver the first Aussie made P2 quality masks recommended by SafeWork Australia to essential workers in Victoria.
Sendle experienced a record breaking day of deliveries in the city after more parcels were sent from Melbourne in a single day than in all of the company’s history (that’s 2.65x the parcel volume that small businesses sent during the same period last year).
Daniel Seldon, Aussie Pharma Direct, Managing Director said demand for the first Australian-made P2 face masks has exploded.
“Orders through our website are up more than 1000 per cent since July 14 2020 and about 70 per cent of orders are coming from people in Victoria, 20 per cent from NSW and 10 per cent the other states and territories,” he said.
“Our Australian-made P2 face masks filter out more than 95 per cent of airborne particles, compared to about 30 per cent for many imported masks. People don’t want to risk the health of themselves and their family, which is why they’re going for the reassuring option of Australian-made.”
Now that face masks are being made locally, rather than being imported from overseas, they are getting to essential workers quicker, cheaper and with a smaller carbon footprint.
Sendle is Australia’s first 100 per cent carbon neutral delivery service and a certified B Corp.
Sendle has also been delivering 100 per cent cotton homemade face masks made by Stitch and Scribble in Queensland and Kamoddity in Victoria, along with high quality masks from Melbourne company Nwaoma Australia. All three businesses have experienced a huge spike in demand for face masks not just in Melbourne, but across the country as Aussies prepare for the second-wave of COVID-19.
James Chin Moody, Sendle CEO said Sendle is honoured to be delivering much needed face masks to Melbourne during this second lockdown.
“We deliver for small businesses all over Australia and it’s fantastic to see some of our customers reviving local manufacturing and producing vital equipment like the Australian made P2 face mask,” he said.
“We’ve been delivering thousands of them to Victoria this week for our customer Aussie Pharma Direct, along with many other local businesses who are helping meet the demand.”
Sendle partners with leaders in eCommerce including eBay, shopify, shippo, ShipStation, starshipit, NAB and easyship.
