The Australian Paralympic Committee (APC) has announced Australia Post as a Major Partner and the official postal and logistics supplier of the 2016 Australian Paralympic Team.

Showing its support for the Australian Paralympic Team for a third consecutive Summer Games campaign, Australia Post’s sponsorship for the 2016 Team includes support of a national fundraising and community engagement campaign, Games uniform delivery and Games-time support of the Team.

As the official postal and logistics supplier to the APC, Australia Post and StarTrack will also deliver Paralympic athletes their team kit.

“Australia Post demonstrated its strong commitment to Australia’s Paralympic Team in Beijing 2008 and London 2012, and we are thrilled that such an iconic Australian organisation will join us again for what will be our biggest and hopefully our most successful Paralympic Games yet,” APC Chief Executive, Lynne Anderson, said.

Australia Post Chief Customer Officer, Christine Corbett, said: “At Australia Post, we know that sport helps build inclusive, cohesive and diverse communities and has the power to unite people.

“Our partnership with the APC is about combining our nationwide postal and logistics networks with the Australian Paralympic Team’s capacity to bring the Australian community together through sport, fostering a more socially inclusive Australia,” she said.

“We are excited to back our Paralympic athletes and support their journey to the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games,” Corbett said.

The APC is currently preparing to deliver more than 170 athletes across 15 sports, from every Australian state and territory to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, which begin on 7 September.
