Covid-19 Updates - Auckland Border Control

Thursday September 16th

From 11:59pm Thursday 16th September 2021, NZ Police will implement the following border controls and are expected to spot check 10% of vehicles transiting in and out of Auckland.

Vehicles will be required to produce:

  • Formal identification
  • Official MBIE Business Travel document
  • Proof of a COVID test within 7 days

We have partnered with a provider of saliva testing for our drivers which will be undertaken in Penrose Auckland, so evidence of testing can be provided at the border control to ensure that should any of our vehicles be stopped, we are fully compliant with the requirements as well as ensuring the safety of our team and extended community.

These spot checks however may have an impact on our line-haul network and driver hours regulations, so we expect that this also has the potential to affect service standards for all destinations outside of Auckland.

We sincerely apologise for any disruption this may cause, these issues are completely outside of our control but we will do everything we can to mitigate delays.

Thank you for your continued patience.

The team at Castle Parcels
