Fliway is one of the largest fully integrated logistics providers operating in New Zealand. We offer seamless global supply chain solutions – from international freight to warehousing & domestic delivery to business or the home. As a division of Yang Kee, our global reach is further supported with operations in South East Asia, Australia and the United States.
We have a great team of over 400 people and an extensive New Zealand footprint, with 12 Branch locations and 5 Warehouses throughout the country.
Fliway focuses on delivering results, and we do that through our people, our partners and our systems. We invest in smart technology, to simplify processes and deliver customers visibility everywhere they need it.
Our IT capabilities are at the leading edge of the industry, as attested to by our long standing relationships with multinational and local customers. We have extensive experience in EDI integrations working alongside our customers locally or globally.
We have spent the past 2 weeks communicating with you as a customer what we can’t achieve under the current government restrictions. As a business this is not our normal way and for the team it has been hard telling our great customers we can’t “just get it done”. So this update focuses on what we have done to date through the level 4 restrictions, and what we can do.
Since Level 4 restrictions commenced we have:
• Unpacked 76 containers
• Completed 268 urgent essential product deliveries
• Completed 16 dedicated loads for customers
• Completed today our first Linehaul run connecting all branches
• Responded to hundreds of email enquiries
• Received numerous emails of thanks (keep them coming) which really lift the teams spirits
Moving forward for essential orders we can do the following:
• Deliver freight AKL to AKL, WLG to WLG & CHC to CHC daily at your normal rates
• Deliver any freight already in our branches from pre-lockdown at your normal rates
• Process orders for existing 3PL warehouse customers and deliver them locally next day at your normal rates
• Provide dedicated truck rates for services anywhere in the country
• Provide Linehaul services 1-2 times per week at a maximum surcharge of 40%
• Reduce the Linehaul surcharge going forward, but need your help. We need more freight.
Easter Linehaul Schedule:
Consignments that departed on the Tuesday 7th April will aim to be delivered pre-Easter.
Consignments departing on Wednesday 8th April linehaul runs ex Auckland will be delivered pre-Easter for North Island and post-Easter for South Island.
The next linehaul runs leave depots on Wednesday 15th April connecting to all depots.
Cut off for having orders to us for that next linehaul run is 3pm Tuesday 14th April.
Remember that our Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch branches are operating a daily pickup and delivery service. Process your orders as normal and drop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what you need.
If you have any questions please get in touch. Have a good Easter!
Domestic Transport and Logistics Services – Level 4 Response:
Fliway Group deliver ‘transport and logistics’ services which are considered an essential service by the Government under the Level 4 COVID 19 response. What this means is that we are able to provide services to our customers, but only where those customers are directly supplying essential goods or services. Essential services are defined as those services relating to food, medicine, healthcare, energy, fuel, waste-removal, internet and financial support.
As a result of this, and to ensure we are doing our part to support the government mandated lockdown requirements Fliway will be operating a very reduced service to cater for essential services and emergency deliveries only.
Services Offered from 26-03-20
