Courier company owner Freightways Ltd is touting for challenging delivery jobs, betting that the breadth of its business units enables it to carry them out.
It is hoping customers will call its "stuck" brand, when they have tricky logistics tasks like delivering a Northland lion to the film set of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe in Central Otago, or retrieving a laptop left in an airport lounge.
Freightways subsidiary Messenger Services Ltd, which operates the SUB60, Kiwi Express, Air Freight NZ Cargo and Security Express brands, will manage the service, which has a website www.stuck.co.nz.
"What we are saying is there is no boundaries with this brand. We are open to providing whatever solution is required," managing director Dean Bracewell said.
It was hard to gauge demand for the service, though the majority of the tasks were expected to be domestic.
He was not aware of any other companies with a dedicated a team to such a business segment.
The need for stuck has come about from increasingly frequent requests to provide outside-the-square solutions for the time sensitive delivery of unusual freight or hard to solve delivery issues.
Freightways was a pioneer of New Zealand's express package industry in the 1960s. Its major competitor is CourierPost.
Freightways has access to five freighter aircraft, 100 plus trucks, more than 1000 goods vehicles and has external partners in the domestic and international express freight industries.
