Food going to waste as couriers overwhelmed with demand

From Checkpoint, 5:46 pm on 8 May 2020

One courier firm has launched an app to recruit enough drivers to cope with the surge in demand.

But the situation has become so bad for a Wellington fish supplier that he's suspended out of town deliveries and taken it upon himself to get orders to customers.
