New Zealand service disruptions due to winter storm - July 1st 2021


Thursday 1st July 2021:

The polar blast felt by most of the country has had a significant impact on our deliveries.

With conditions starting to ease, our road and air networks are now operating to their normal schedules however the backlog is extensive. Delivery timings may be delayed – further information is outlined below.

  • Interislander ferry services have recommenced (albeit on a reduced schedule).
  • Due to the cancellation of ferry services (over the past few days), the backlog of Economy, Courier Economy, International Parcels, and Mail items is significant.
  • These items will be incurring delivery delays up to 2-3 days until the backlog is cleared, which is expected to take the remainder of this week and weekend.
  • There are currently no delays to our Courier, Express, and Express Tonight products.

 You can refer to NZ Post's website for the most up-to-date snapshot of their network information.
