COVID -19 Update

13/5/2020

Alert Level 2 – Normal Schedule Resumes:

Effective 11:59 Wednesday 13th May NZ will move into Alert Level 2, and as such Fliway will resume our normal pick up, delivery and linehaul schedules. Our website tracking is now fully functioning and our phone lines and usual contacts are all available again.

We have been planning for a surge in volumes as Level 2 commences and have our full resources available to assist in getting freight delivered. Please be patient over the next week as we work through the increased level 2 volume. Fliway is still operating with social distancing inside our depots which slows down sorting of freight and will present some continued challenges in Level 2.

Thank you to all our many loyal customers, we appreciate your ongoing support and we look forward to working with you under Level 2.

Level 3 – Increased Frequency Service Schedule:

With the recent government announcement of the move to Alert Level 3 on Tuesday 28th April; we are pleased to advise that we can now recommence transport services for all our customer base. Under the Level 3 rules we are now able to carry all freight, and complete delivery of freight stuck in our network as a result of the level4 lockdown.

As a result of this we are putting in place a Level 3 schedule that connects our main depots via linehaul a minimum of three times per week and smaller depots twice per week. A copy of the scheduled linehaul service ex Auckland is shown below and a full service schedule for all towns is available on our website. The schedule is derived from our customer forecasts and will be reviewed regularly throughout Level 3.

Home Delivery Network:

Our Home Delivery network will be fully running from Tuesday 28th and is able to facilitate all deliveries, installations, pickups and returns from residential customers. We have put in place strict social distancing protocols and have a robust plan to ensure the safety of our teams and the general public as we recommence these services.


A reminder all deliveries will be contactless under COVID 19 alert level 3.


What we need from you:

Effective Tuesday 28th orders can be processed as normal, however to ensure the smooth recommencement of services it is imperative that you confirm your receivers are open under Level 3 before putting the consignment into our network. For those customers with freight sent pre lockdown but not delivered, please contact the receiver and advise your Fliway representative if the delivery cannot be completed during Level 3.

Our depots are operating with reduced staff therefore we would request that wherever possible you utilize email to make contact.


Covid-19 Freight Surcharge:

In line with previous communications we will continue to review the current Covid-19 surcharge applicable to linehaul movements from Auckland. As we engage with our customers on their planned volumes next week we expect that we will be able to reduce this surcharge and we will issue further advice on the detail of this by the end of this week.

Fuel Surcharge:

With the decrease in the cost of oil we are also pleased to also announce that our fuel adjustment factor (FAF) is being decreased by 1.5% effective as of tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd of April.
