Severe Weather Disruptions South Island – Update

Wednesday June 2nd 9.00am

A big push from the Christchurch Freight Hub last night, along with our linehaul operators utilising a road option that circumvented the flooding and the issue with the bridge on State Highway at Ashburton, we were able to move much of the backlog, both in and out of Christchurch to the Lower South Island branches: Ashburton, Timaru, Oamaru, Dunedin, Invercargill and Central Otago/Queenstown.

The volume of freight is significant in to all of these areas and the branches will work diligently to clear all they can over the next 48 hours, so we do ask that you are patient whilst we do what we can to manage these volumes over this time.

Further updates will be posted when information comes to hand and we thank you for your understanding through these challenging days.
