About us

In 1983, Napier man, Bill McGowan, saw a market for a locally owned and operated courier company to provide reliable courier services to businesses in the Hawke’s Bay region. With a passion for freight and logistics, and a ‘delight the customer at the door’ mentality, the Fastway Couriers brand was born.

Fastway has been operating in New Zealand since 1983. Our network includes 18 Regional Franchises and over 280 franchise partners across the country, from Kaitaia to Bluff and almost everywhere in between.

In 2016 Fastway Couriers New Zealand became a part of the Aramex family, a leading global provider of comprehensive logistics and transportation solutions based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

To leverage off the passion, innovation and opportunities that Aramex presents, in 2019 we underwent a complete re-brand making the transition from Fastway Couriers to Aramex New Zealand official. 

Although we still offer the same friendly service, we have a spectrum of new opportunities available for customers large and small.
