Coronavirus: Couriers could be busier under Alert Level 3

From Morning Report, 6:17 am on 17 April 2020

Courier drivers could be a lot busier next week if the country moves to level three.

The Prime Minister yesterday revealed details of what life would look like at Alert Level 3, including a total lifting of restrictions around deliveries.

With retail shops remaining closed, online shopping and goods delivered to your door is likely to be the only game in town.

Then there are takeaway outlets and restaurants which, while remaining closed for sit down meals, are still able to send food out through the likes of Uber Eats.

The head of Aramex, formerly Fastway Couriers, Scott Jenyns, says it should be a lot busier.
