Australia is a very large country that has vast parts of it with very few, or no inhabitants at all. A delivery to a remote part of the outback, could mean a ride on a truck or other type of delivery vehicle for anywhere between 12 to 24 hours. Although the EMS Australia system is quite sophisticated, because of the nature of the delivery industry in the country, it does not always perform as well as it operators would like to think it should.
You will find that in many cases they simply forget to input the fact that they have left one location, and are in the process of traveling to the next stop on their journey into the EMS Australia system. For the person or businesses that is depending on a very important delivery, this can be quite frustrating, and leave them wondering if they will ever receive their package.
