“eCommerce is the future for NZ Post, and providing end-to-end logistics and delivery to support eCommerce businesses to grow makes sense for us. Partnering with Supply Chain Solutions will allow us to provide an end-to-end supply chain for our customers. We also have strong alignment of our core values,” says Norbert Bojarski.

“We’re very proud to be partnering with NZ Post,” says Supply Chain Solutions Founder and Director Brad Lindsay. “It’s important to us that we continue to be Kiwi owned, and with NZ Post as a shareholder we know we are working alongside a trusted and historic New Zealand business, that’s been around for over 180 years. Like NZ Post, we are deeply customer centric, our customers exist at the centre of everything we do. Between us, we are looking forward to supporting local eCommerce businesses to succeed.”

NZ Post’s latest eCommerce research the Full Download shows New Zealanders spent more than $5.8 billion online last year, an increase of 25% on the year prior.
