NZ Post is considered an essential service

We will continue to provide essential delivery services at level 4.

As you’ll be aware, yesterday the Government announced New Zealand will move to level 3 alert for 48 hours and then to level 4 for a period of four weeks. NZ Post is considered an essential service and will continue to provide essential delivery services at level 4.

We are doing everything possible to prepare so we can keep New Zealand moving but will need to prioritise essential deliveries (blood, medical supplies, food & essential home items for example). For the latest on essential businesses, see the NZ Government COVID-19 website.

Last night we asked our business customers to provide vital information to help us to prepare as best as possible for Alert Level 4. If your business received this message, please share your current understanding with us. We appreciate that businesses may not have full clarity at this stage.

We will also be impacted by this and expect to have disruption to our workforce, we will do everything we can to maintain service levels but do expect significant disruption.

This is a challenging time for all of us. We are committed to keeping our people, communities and NZ moving as well as possible.

Stay well and safe.
