A workmate has a family member at NZ Post said they've taken over an empty warehouse in East Tamaki and set up a temporary storage/sort centre. Hopefully it helps clear the backlog.


Off topic but I sent a package with NZ Couriers on Thursday from Auckland and arrived next day in Wanaka. So as everyone else says most other companies are back to (almost) normal.

Seems (for the most part) all courier companies bar Courierpost are managing their deliveries in a timely manner. They're the only ones still running behind.



I always seem to have my packages delivered by CP/NZP and so far I've only had one parcel fail to be delivered the next day. I'm averaging 2-3 deliveries a week during lockdown so seems to be a pretty good success rate to me. Interstingtly I've not had a single non-CP/NZP parcel so I would guess CP are handling bulk of parcels within NZ? Or they handle the bulk of deliveries for Ascent and Mighty Ape which are my main virtual retailers. Even parcels orginating from overseas ports seem to be handed over to CP/NZP on arrival in NZ. Can't avoid CP/NZP but at least they're doing well in my neck of the woods (Pukekohe as I have my parcels delivered to SO's workplace).

I ordered some electronic items on the 12th May from AliExpress.


Paid the $2 extra for AliExpress Standard Shipping.


Arrived in Auckland on the 21st May, and picked up by NZPost / CourierPost the same day.


No movement shown since then.

PB Tech order (a TV) collected by CourierPost 5/5/20 - still buried in the pile at AOC/AMC Sorter & DepotScan 20 days later! 


The Warehouse -  Easter egg order collected by CourierPost 5/5/20 - probably eaten by rats by now also buried at AOC/AMC Sorter & DepotScan 20 days later


Also have another 8x parcels with CourierPost, slowly going nowhere it seems, and they just need to come across town!! Patience wearing thin..... 


Why do they still state up to 10 days delay for Auckland on their website, Facebook etc? I bet there's a lot of others affected by these delays that have gone on far too long.

Tivo upgrades to operate with the new OzTivo EPG, support and service. Over 300 performed here so far. See:

kiwiharry: Still waiting on a package that was sent "Overnight" via CourierPost on 07 May. Going from North Shore to West Auckland.

Tracking just says parcel delayed. No estimated delivery.

I'm waiting for a replacement router from my ISP...ordered last week, picked up this idea when we can expect the delivery. Been a week without meaningful wifi - didn't realise how much I relied on it.
