Mail Contractors

POAAL is an independent and experienced industry body for Mail & Parcel Contractors.

POAAL members can access insurances at excellent premiums, including the compulsory public liability insurance, marine cargo insurance, personal accident insurance (where applicable) and PDT insurance required under the Mail Contract.

Australia Post and Star Track Contractors need to provide their own vehicle and cover all their own operating costs, including fuel, vehicle maintenance, insurance and superannuation.

POAAL can help Australia Post and Star Track Contractors manage their insurance costs. POAAL’s Contractor members can access insurance at very competitive rates through POAAL’s group policies and through our insurance broker, Network Insurance Group.

Click “Become a member” to start the process, or phone the POAAL National Office on 03 96544533 during working hours.

For commercial vehicle insurance, contact the team at Network Insurance Group insurance brokers on 1800 639 177.
