Changes to 'across town' delivery target for standard post

16 September 2013

New Zealand Post has revised its delivery target for standard post for ‘across town services’ as it makes adjustments to changes in the mail processing network.

In June New Zealand Post announced a consolidation of its mail processing network to create a viable configuration for the future. This consolidation means that the target of delivering standard letters ‘across-town’ by the next working day is removed.

From 7 October 2013 all standard letters will be delivered within New Zealand Post’s Standard Post nationwide delivery target of three working days.

Customers continue to have access to next working day delivery options through priority mail products with FastPost, BoxLink (a service for sending items to PO Boxes or Private Bags) and Courier-Post overnight delivery.
