New Zealand's Freight and Courier labels

Companies have acted in competition with the New Zealand Post Office, now NZ Post,
for the carrying of freight and parcels from the late 1800s to the present day.
This site aims to show examples of the many issues from those companies operating in New Zealand.


Adam Miller's book "The Parcel Carriage Labels of New Zealand" (covering the issuers to about 1980 the pre-Courier era) is now sold out from the Royal Philatelic Society of New Zealand. Local NZ stamp dealers or the RPSNZ may be able to locate a second-hand copy if you are desperate.
