More than five million parcels delivered in one week


The Hague, 29 November 2016 - PostNL will process and deliver a record number of parcels this week. The week before Sinterklaas is traditionally one of the busiest weeks in the PostNL sorting centres. In one week, PostNL will sort and deliver more than five million parcels.

Sinterklaas does a lot of his shopping online and also makes use of PostNL’s various delivery options. Parcels are now also delivered on Mondays and in the evenings. 'Our sorting centres throughout the country are running at full capacity. In the coming week there will be 3,800 parcel delivery drivers on the road, 600 more than on a normal delivery day,' says Gerrit Mastenbroek, PostNL Parcels Director. 'This will enable us to reach a new record again.' One in seven households daily will be visited by a PostNL parcel delivery driver dropping off a parcel.
