South Waikato News - - NEWS / HE PU¯RONGORONGO -

New Zealand Post is to cut mail de­liv­ery in ur­ban ar­eas to three days a week from July.

The state-owned en­ter­prise has been telling staff of the move to­day, which fol­lows a change to its deed of un­der­stand­ing with the Gov­ern­ment in 2013.

The move is a step to pro­tect the or­gan­i­sa­tion from a fall in mail vol­umes hit­ting prof­itabil­ity.

Mail and com­mu­ni­ca­tions chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer, Ash­ley Smout, con­firmed that stan­dard mail will be de­liv­ered ev­ery sec­ond day to house­holds in ur­ban ar­eas start­ing from July in larger towns and cities.

Over the fol­low­ing two years it would be rolled out to smaller cen­tres.
