Meet "Pico"

Our post – what's it all about?


Hi ... they call me "Pico". Why? It's because I move like lightning.

Did you know – my name is short for picosecond, which is one trillionth of a second? How cool is that! In the time that it has taken you to read about me so far, I could travel about 3.6 million kilometres. Are you impressed? You should be!

I live in Australia Post's digital world, where everything happens at mind boggling speeds and where data, in the form of ones and zeros, are computed to make things happen. Things like, sorting the mail and delivering letters and parcels to your home and school.

So, when you next see your friendly postie, or visit an Australia Post retail outlet, remember me. I'm always there working away behind the scenes, but you won't see me. Why? Because I'm just too fast!
