NZ Post - Network Disruptions Overnight

09-Jun-2021 04:42 PM - Rowan
Last night (08/06/2021), NZ Post experienced several events that have impacted their network and will cause significant delays over the week.

Disruptions: 
  • Multiple events overnight have caused significant disruptions and extensive delays to our delivery network today – Wednesday 9 June. 
  • Disruptions are extensive – aircraft engineering issues, equipment breakdowns, road closures and vehicle incidents. 
 
Products/Areas Affected:
  • These delays will be felt across the country, and the majority of products affected are items destined for Auckland, Dunedin, Invercargill and Central Otago.  
  • Smaller towns experiencing freight delays are as follows: 
    • Whangarei, Rotorua, Taupo, Tauranga, New Plymouth, Napier, Whanganui, Kapiti, Wellington and Lower Hutt. 
  • All perishable and urgent items will be prioritised. Please lodge these items into our network as early as possible so that we can manage this accordingly.
  • We expect the delays within the Auckland and Dunedin centres to be fully recovered over the course of this week (including the weekend).
  • All other areas across the network are expected to be fully recovered over the next 24 hours.
  • We’re working hard to get these items to their destinations safely. Please bear with us as work through these disruptions.
