NZ Post’s bumper parcel season

New_Zealand_PostTwo days out from Christmas, New Zealand Post is set to smash all previous parcel processing records, with two million parcels going through its network this week alone, up 10 per cent from the same time last year.

NZ Post service delivery chief operating officer, Ashley Smout, said the record number of parcels being processed and delivered through NZ Post’s extensive network was further evidence that New Zealanders were shopping online in increasing numbers.

“In Auckland on Monday night alone, we processed more than 145,000 parcels at our state-of-the-art Auckland operating centre, and more than 160,000 citywide,” he said.

“That’s 80 per cent more than what we see on a typical day in Auckland.”

For the month of December, NZ Post (which includes CourierPost) is on track to process up to seven million parcels, up from 6.5 million last December.
