Who knew?

No-one could have predicted the extent of the impact Covid-19 would have on a global scale. The ongoing pandemic has prompted a huge international increase in parcel freight, placing incredible strain on our nation’s already stretched parcel delivery systems.

In addition to the increase in parcel delivery, demand for delivery of essential items such as food and pharmaceuticals pushed existing Australian courier and freight businesses to operate at a trading level over 30% above the Christmas peak for almost the entire 2020.

Freight Save – helping local economies

Local economies have been severely impacted by Covid-19. Restrictions prevented shoppers from purchasing non-essential items from their local stores and store owners have had to swiftly change their business models to survive.

Freight Save has 17 partner courier companies, many of whom specialise in local and metro deliveries. Businesses are partnering with Freight Save to have their goods delivered to local customers quickly and with confidence that their goods aren’t leaving the local area, minimising multiple handling associated with interstate deliveries.

Arranging a local courier to pickup and deliver your goods can save you money, transit time, multiple handling of your goods and most importantly help local businesses stay afloat in the wash of Covid-19.

Keeping safe – handling of packages during Covid-19

As well as buying local during Covid-19, there are many ways to keep you, your family and your community safe;

  1. Wash or sanitise your hands before packing your item
  2. Wipe over satchels, cartons and plastic packaging on receival of your goods and again wash your hands
  3. Leave goods to be picked up by the door for a contactless pickup
  4. Provide an Authority to Leave order on booking, allowing the driver to leave your item/s in a safe location for a contactless delivery
  5. If exchanging your item/s with a courier driver, wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
