Flooding conditions throughout the Canterbury and South Canterbury regions will cause ongoing service delays for the next few days as effected areas return to normal and flood damage is rectified.
Road freight from the North Island to the Lower South Island regions below Christchurch did not move on Sunday night and there is a strong possibility that nothing will travel south of Christchurch tonight as a state of emergency is still in place as of 3.00pm today. With this in mind there will be significant volumes of freight backlogged and may not be in place for delivery until Wednesday morning.
It would be wise to restrict Lower South Island volumes over the next couple of days and to refrain from moving any perishable or cold chain items until further notice.
Areas mainly effected by the network issues are Ashburton, Timaru, Oamaru, Dunedin, Queenstown, Wanaka, Central Otago, Invercargill and all points between and surrounding these regions. It is equally important to note that we will be unable to move freight out of these regions tonight heading north.
We will continue to update the website with changes as they come to hand but please be patient as we will do all we can to return to normal service schedules.

As has been reported over the last 48 hours, heavy rain has fallen throughout the Canterbury and South Canterbury regions causing widespread flooding. Road closures and access to much of this region has been seriously affected and will result in ongoing delays to service levels until such time as the flooding clears.
Weather conditions are due to improve as Monday progresses, but it may take some time before normal service can be resumed.
Please be patient as we work through the challenges in front of us as we will do all we can to mitigate any service disruptions, once we have clearance to return to full operations and the state of emergency is lifted across the region.

The Wellington CBD will be
affected for some time to come with lane and street closures, owing to the
appearance of a sink hole and subsequent stormwater pipe issues. Along with
this, the construction of the new Convention Centre in the city is also
creating delays. The significant ongoing effect for us will be around access
issues, not just in to the CBD, but also the time it will take for our couriers
to access the southern bays, as we must drive through the CBD to get to those
areas, which include Wellington Airport, Mirimar, Kilbirnie and Newtown etc.
For more information please refer to the Herald article link below as a reference:
Thank you for your consideration and please be assured we will do all we can to minimise any delays in service.
