Through Booking of Parcels and Goods.
The volume of traffic conveyed by the Department's through booking system between the North and South Islands continues to increase, and during the past year 14,449 tons were shipped, an increase of 2,624 tons on the tonnage for the previous year. This service was instituted in May, 1925, and the tonnage conveyed for the year ended 31st March, 1926, was 5,183 tons.
The growth of this branch of the Department's activities is sufficient to indicate that the facilities provided are meeting a real need and are being increasingly appreciated by the public generally—(From the Railways Statement, 1930.)
