Please see the below notice from our courier providers: As you have probably seen on the news, there are weather issues in Canterbury.
State Highway 1 and 79 are currently closed. This effectively cuts off any destination south of Ashburton from any road connection. That is TIU, OAM, DUD, GOR, IVC, CNO, ZQN. The overnight freight sent from NI to SI would normally travel Sunday night from our Freight Hub in Christchurch. This will not happen. TFH will separate the satchels for DUD TIU IVC CNO ZQN and these will be flown this evening on Air NZ. TIU will go to DUD and go up on the dayrun.
NO OTHER FREIGHT WILL MOVE.
This will also affect any 2day sent on Thursday.
There is a very real possibility that the roads will not be open tomorrow night, or if one of them is, it will not be open to heavy traffic. We are looking at options for Medical etc, more re this will be advised today when we know more.
