Month: October 2009

On behalf of Australia Post, Freightways will deliver parcels in New Zealand instead of rival Courier Post which previously held the delivery arrangements.

Freightways Managing Director Dean Bracewell said Australia Post was the biggest parcel mover in this part of the world and like all postal operators was moving more and more into the international package industry.
