Fastway Couriers celebrates 25 years in Australia

Delivery network Fastway Couriers has celebrated reaching 25 years of operation in Australia. The milestone was recognised at the company’s annual convention, held this year in Uluru, Northern Territory.

“Fastway Couriers is delighted to be celebrating its 25-year anniversary in Australia, and what better place to celebrate than Australia’s iconic Uluru?” said Peter Lipinski, CEO, Fastway Couriers Australia. “Our annual conference is a time to reflect on the success of the past year, and this year we are so pleased to be celebrating a successful 25 years of distribution here in Australia.”

Fastway Couriers was established in New Zealand in 1983, launched in Australia in 1993, and was named Australia’s fastest growing private company in 1998 by BRW Magazine. The company now has over 800 franchisees now across Australia, of a total over 1,500, and and was purchased by international courier and logistics company Aramex in January 2016.

“The transport and delivery industry has changed dramatically over the past 25 years,” said Lipinski. “The first Fastway van in Australia distributed in a world pre-smartphone technology and internet, in a market made up predominately of business-to-business customers.

“The rise of online shopping in the past five years has completely transformed our industry. The rapidly growing appetite of Australian consumers for online shopping and the expectation of round-the-clock convenience has underpinned the development of a number of innovative new technologies to help future proof our business and franchisees and delight every customer at the door.”
