The Government has issued further guidance on which companies can remain open during the Level-4 lockdown and has led Transfervans to clarify its position on its availability during this time.
The government has made it clear that:
“Businesses that are a critical part of the supply chain for essential services are also able to continue operating, but must do so in a way that is safe”
Transfervans believes that it has implemented a number of processes which will improve the safety of deliveries for essential workers and industries if required. However, for the safety of everyone, we understand that our delivery service cannot be used for non-essential industries or workers.
MBIE chief executive, Paul Stocks, has also clearly stated:
“Only the businesses absolutely essential to ensure the necessities of life, like supermarkets and pharmacies, can stay open. If in doubt, the business premises should be closed.”
Transfervans will therefore halt virtually all deliveries for both business and consumer customers from 11.59pm (Tonight) Wednesday 25 2020 for at least four weeks.
For businesses that are delivering essential services, and require deliveries to be made, we request that a Director of the business provide a signed letter stating that ‘any delivery requests made during the mandatory government shutdown will be for essential workers and essential services only’.
We further await updates on white-goods deliveries, like fridges, freezers and washing machines, and further updates regarding online ordering from MBIE which may lead to an update to this policy: we will be there for essential deliveries when called upon.
Transfervans is committed to supporting the Government’s measures and essential services during this time. The safety and security of New Zealanders and our visitors is of the utmost importance at this time, that is why “we need as many businesses as possible to close their premises now if our one shot at beating the virus is to be successful”.
