Local delivery company Aramex Wide Bay is assuring residents it remains open for business and ready to deliver for the community.
Regional Franchisee and local resident Warrick Peake said in this time of government regulations during the Coronavirus pandemic, courier services are essential.
“We’ve noticed a big shift in deliveries towards alcohol, home cleaning products and home office equipment like computers, monitors and webcams,” he said.
“Every day we’re making essential deliveries for customers to help them cope with COVID-19, and we’re proud to continue supporting local businesses throughout the greater Wide Bay region.
“Our national and international network is fully operational, rapidly responding to surges in demand as we keep parcels and deliveries on track.”
“We’ve implemented a no-contact delivery solution to protect the health and safety of our customers, our people and our community.”
Warrick said couriers had been encouraged by the chorus of thanks and appreciation shown to them by consumers adjusting to new work-from-home and social-distancing policies.
“Now more than ever, our courier services are a vital link for our most vulnerable in isolation,” he said.
“And it’s more than deliveries. For many, a courier might be the only person they see at their front door each day.”
Warrick said event with contactless service, the company provided a friendly local face with essential deliveries to keep people feeling connected in our community.
“All our couriers are going above and beyond on every delivery, every day for our customers,” he said.
“We’ve got an important role to play in keeping business moving in Wide Bay through these restrictions.”
