Michael Paul, PACK & SEND founder and CEO, said: “Australians are well-known for their enterprising spirit and willingness to have a go. We’ve seen huge demand from small businesses partnering with PACK & SEND over recent years and with this in mind, we wanted to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to the sector, as we know the challenges small business owners face.
