Auckland’s 11-week lockdown and its growing demand for package deliveries has NZ Post on the brink, with hundreds of extra workers needed and no more vans left to hire in the city, RNZ reports. NZ Post chief customer officer Brian Dobson said, “the last five weeks worth of online sales in Auckland will have all been bigger than Black Friday last year.” Aucklanders spent more than $700 million online over the past three months – $122m more than the same quarter last year. To online shoppers, Dobson advised: “Plan ahead, write a list, if you’re prepared you can do one big order and rather than ordering lots of individual items.”
