I ordered a motherboard and mini itx case from 1 supplier.    The case arrived with the postie this morning and no sign of motherboard.   I contacted supplier and found motherboard was with NZ Couriers.
 Both were sent by NZ Couriers and when the motherboard arrived it was with NZpost this afternoon but in their van.  I said to the driver that I expected the NZ Courier van as was sent by them.  The NZ Post driver said they deliver the nZ Courier packages as well now.

I dont know how long they have had a tie in and if one has bought the other or just some sort of service sharing.
Also dont know if it is nationwide or just local here at Papamoa.  Just suprised

If you are in a Rural Delivery route, the NZ Post contractor sometimes is also a contractor for another crowd (in the case of my RD route, our driver is a contractor for a crowd called Coural) in addition to NZ Post that accept non NZ Post courier parcels.

It used to be that NZ Couriers et al would hand over the parcels to the NZ Post network at even greater expense to the senders, but this arrangement seems to have cut that down a little bit.   NZ Post, Courier Post and DHL are to my knowledge the only companies that do end-to-end track and trace through and past Rural Delivery handover, the others end their responsibility at handover to Coural/local handover operation.

If you are Urban, ignore what I said.

yeah we are urban not rural.  Just surprised competitors working together sharing, unless they are no longer competitors

Yeah, to be fair, I had to Google Maps you to work out exactly where Papamoa was, my guess was rural.  I guess it's possible that the driver contracts for both CP and NZC though.  It'd certainly be frowned upon in the larger areas but stranger things have happened, especially if the volume is too small to hold down individual contractors for both companies.

Most certainly competitors still though.

just wondered as until recently the NZ Courier driver always did call in.   Still see him delivering to the Plaza just down the road.
Either way the items did still arrive just hours apart when sent from same place same time

In Albany (Auckland) the Courier Post / Post Haste and NZ Courier offices are in the left and right sides of the same building at 35 and 37 Arrenway Dr.   

I had to go there to get a parcel the other day.....while an actual NZ Post parcel had to be picked up from Ride Way. Must be contracting stuff out.

i asked the one here and they share the same building and decided due to the large volume of parcels they will share deliveries.  One delivers Papamoa East and the other Papamoa West in order to efficiently handle the volume
