Changes to freight services will go ahead on Monday despite multiple meetings between Waiheke business owners, the local board and Fullers360 representatives.

This Saturday 15 December will be the final day of the previous freight services. Changes will take effect from Monday 17 December as the new freight service operates Monday to Friday only.
