PostNL returns post box

PostNL plaatst brievenbus terug

The Hague – 8 June 2017 - PostNL has returned a post box in Overschild. The postal operator is in the process of modifying the post box network. As fewer and fewer letters are being sent in the Netherlands, post boxes are being removed or repositioned to more accessible locations throughout the country.

Careful process

Modifying the post box network is a very careful process, for which PostNL is liaising closely with local representatives for vulnerable users. PostNL is constantly working to analyse the effects of removing certain post boxes, leading to the decision to return this post box in Overschild. It has now been placed back in its original spot.
