As a result of major bushfires in New South Wales, a number of major roads and highways were closed until midnight last night resulting in a number of delays across our network today.
Freight traveling southbound from Sydney has been the most affected and we expect there to be delays for deliveries in Melbourne.
Any freight not delivered Friday 18th October, will be on a priority delivery on Monday 21st October 2013.
Customers with freight into Sydney and Brisbane may also experience some delays this morning.
