COVID-related seclusion issues and flooding on Fraser Coast continue to hinder courier operations. It’s been a tough time to start the week of operations. We seek your kind understanding throughout this difficult duration.
Due to the widespread impact of Omicron infection, some carrier delays at this time are anticipated. Network delays continue to be brought on by the rapid spread of the Omicron variation. The regions most affected by Omicron are Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Geelong and Bendigo, with hold-ups of 3-5 days for delivery into these areas. Perth is also experiencing hold-ups of up to 5 – 30 days as a result of extraordinary shipment demand and staffing scarcities. We are working really closely with our courier partners to make sure deliveries are made on time and expect to clear the floor by the end of the week.
