Aramex Australia insists the national transport and logistics sector is well placed to handle an expected jump in business as the recovery begins.

"We know many businesses are preparing to reopen their doors and get back to work," Aramex Australia CEO Peter Lipinski says.

"Logistics is going to be crucial to a successful recovery for Australia.

"As retail, hospitality venues and other businesses begin to reopen, we expect to see a significant spike in delivery across the nation

"Our national and international Aramex network is fully operational. We are ready to meet the increase in demand as Australia commences its road to recovery."

"Our 800 plus courier franchisees delivering across 28 regional franchise networks, have adapted to the new landscape in recent months and have been going above and beyond every day to deliver the goods that Australians need during these challenging times," Lipinski adds. 
 
"Our couriers have been there for customers throughout the challenging social distancing measures and we look forward to continuing to support our customers in the next stage of recovery."

The firm reports a busy lockdown period, revealing it recorded a 30 per cent increase in delivery volumes during March and April year on year, as social distancing measures bit.

Deliveries over the past two months include more than 2,700,000 rolls of toilet paper, 2,300,000 cans of dog food and 1,700,000 bottles of wine.
