Aramex Service Update Fridasy 24th of December:


Please be advised that our fantastic team of couriers and staff across the country are doing everything they can to get your parcels delivered before Christmas. Please note some service disruptions below;

Offshore Call Centre

We have increased our capacity in our New Zealand call centre but are experiencing overloading at times. Click here to lodge an enquiry if you cannot get through to our New Zealand call centre in a timely fashion

Parcel delivery delays
Due to an increase in parcel volumes and Covid-19 restrictions we are experiencing delays Nationwide of up to 1 working day, with the exception of the following regions.

Auckland region
In the Auckland & North Shore region there are delays of 3- 5 working days.
Some freight could be older than the days indicated, and this will be due to the following reasons;

  • Some parcels were held due to businesses being closed under the COVID restrictions.
  • Some residential parcels may have got caught up in the business held freight by mistake and these are now being delivered.
  • Large/bulky items that require more delivery resources to deliver. This is particularly relevant in the North Shore region.

We would like to apologise for the ongoing service delays being experienced in our Auckland region. Our teams have been working hard and long hours to get our services back into line and we continue to increase our delivery resources as fast as possible. We are doing everything we can with our team and customers across the country to get service back to normal.

Northland region
The areas of One Tree Point & Ruakaka are currently experiencing delays of up to 7 working days.
The areas of Waipu, Mangawhai and Mangawhai Heads are currently experiencing delays of up to 10 working days.
