'Bloody disgusting': Australia Post under fire after couriers seen throwing packages in car park

Alarming footage has emerged of couriers throwing parcels onto the ground in a Perth car park.

Michelle Shoosmith filmed the men at a McDonald’s car park in Currambine, in the city’s north, on Wednesday as they sifted through parcels.

The clip shows the Star Track delivery workers sorting the mail into several piles, often flinging parcels and boxes several metres onto the ground.

Star Track is a transport and logistics company owned by Australia Post.

Ms Shoosmith told 7News she was stunned by the brazen incident.

“I was like oh my goodness. People need to see what they're doing to their belongings,” she said.

Ms Shoosmith took to Facebook to share the clip, with the post quickly inundated with responses from users equally shocked.

“Bloody disgusting,” one person wrote.

An Australia Post spokesperson told Yahoo News Australia that the company offers its apologies to its customers over the incident.

“Our customers deserve better and we apologise,” they said.

The spokesperson confirmed the matter is being investigated.
