The company also announced  it is investing $170 million in its network to double its parcel-processing capacity from 95 million parcels today to 190 million parcels.

Shane Jones Associate Minister for State Owned Enterprises attended the ground-breaking and blessing ceremony for the parcel-processing depot at Grenada. He commented:

“As an essential service, posties and couriers worked throughout the COVID-19 Level 4 lockdown to deliver essential items to Kiwis, and they have continued to work through the resulting massive demand for e-commerce,

“New Zealanders will be aware of the issues that surrounded the ability of NZ Post to deal with the huge surge in parcel post during lockdown. This new state of the art depot will provide NZ Post with the capacity to process parcels more quickly and efficiently,” he added.

Today’s ground-breaking marks progress in NZ Post’s 10-year plan for parcel growth.

“This investment is good news for New Zealand businesses who are looking to grow their e-commerce presence or are already successful in this space, and for the customers who use those services.”
