Severe Weather Across New Zealand – Expect Transit Delays
Due to a severe weather event across New Zealand, there is likely to be an impact on transit times both inter island and within island consignments from Auckland and Christchurch warehouses.
The situations currently suggests that:
- All Inter Island ferry sailings will be cancelled from Wednesday evening to Friday morning.
- Several South Island roads have been impacted by severe snow fall including Porters Pass, Arthurs Pass, Lindis Pass and Lewis Pass – this will result in all freight heading outside Canterbury and Otago to experience possible delays
- Several North Island roads are likely to have severe snow fall over the next 24 hours including Napier-Taupo Road, Desert Road and Rimutaka Hill Road which will likely result in transit delays
Please advise your customers to expect some delays over the coming days in respect of domestic transit times.
