Police raid Australia Post parcel depot in NSW

Police have raided Post’s transport depot at Chullora reportedly uncovering dozens of safety breaches. Drivers were tested for alcohol and drugs. There were no breaches here.

Trucks were checked for defects. There were allegedly 22 major defects and 10 minor defects here.

Reportedly police officers had been gathering intelligence since January. They carried out mechanical compliance inspections and download data from engine control modules. They inspected 194 trucks and trailers and issued defects under the banner of operation Despatch. These include defects involving brakes, tyres, suspension and oil/fuel leaks.

A further 23 vehicles engine control modules were downloaded with all of them found to be non compliant. Four had records of speeding over 100km/h.

“These operations will continue until the dangerous and potentially deadly behaviour ends – even if we have to visit each facility one by one,” said NSW Police assistant commissioner John Hartley.
