The news is back
IF YOU have missed your home delivery of The Gympie Times during the flood, rest assured your morning read of all the news from the region will be back on your lawn in the next couple of days.
Flooding this week caused havoc with home delivery. The rain event happened at the same time as this newspaper took on the delivery of the paper to an additional 700 subscribers, which also meant drivers were learning new runs.
APN News and Media Ltd supply chain operations general manager Liam Maher yesterday said he was confident the major problems had been overcome and delivery was looking better from today.
"We should have more on time deliveries from today," he said.
"We are going to new areas with an extra 700 subscribers, the drivers are learning new runs and at the same time, the area has a major flood.
"There were areas we just could not reach due to the road conditions and our first priority is always the safety of our drivers.
"It will probably take another couple of days to bed all the runs down and by the end of this week we should have ironed out the pieces.
"We have three delivery drivers, all experienced and another new vehicle, all aimed at providing a better service in getting you morning paper, The Gympie Times, delivered to your door," Mr Maher said.
