New Zealand Post poised for 20% parcel volume hike

New Zealand Post is expecting to handle 20% more parcels this December, compared to last year.

All told, the company anticipates it will be processing 41.5m letters and parcels this month.

In order to handle the seasonal influx, New Zealand Post has taken on an extra 600 staff, 200 vans, 13 line-haul trucks and is operating an additional 737 aircraft.

“We started to see the growth in early November, with our busiest days already reaching over 2.7 million items in the network,” said New Zealand Post’s Chief Operating Officer, Mark Stewart.

“Being ready for Christmas has been a priority as we know how much it matters for people. We’ll be pulling out all the stops right up until the last delivery day which is the last Saturday before Christmas [23 December].”

Customers should send their mail and parcels within New Zealand by 19 December for Standard Post, ParcelPost and ParcelPost Tracked. Items being sent by FastPost, Courier Parcel and Courier & Signature Parcel need to be sent by 20 December.
