Shop horror – we’re big online shoppers, but not compared to this country
Have you embraced online shopping? How many parcels do you receive in an average year?
According to the Pitney Bowes Parcel Shipping Index – yes, there really is such a thing – Australians received, on average, 34 parcels in 2018. If that seems like a lot, we have a long way to go to catch up to China, where the average person receives 70 parcels a year.
The average in the United States is 21, slightly less than Germany and the United Kingdom where the average number of parcels received per person was 24 and 22 respectively.
In contrast, the average person in India receives just one parcel or less every year, as did the average person in Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand.
