PostNL automated parcel lockers transformed into advent calendars

The Hague, 15 December 2023 - To mark the festive season, a number of PostNL's automated parcel lockers have been transformed into a giant advent calendar. It is the first time PostNL has done this. Residents of Eindhoven, Wijchen and Leiderdorp have the scoop. They will receive a small gift when they pick up their parcel from the transformed automated parcel lockers* this week.

Surprise in the automated parcel locker

When residents collect their parcel from the transformed automated parcel lockers this week, they will find an extra parcel behind the door. From today until Thursday 21 December, these parcel lockers will be filled with gifts again and again.

Consumer choice

Consumers can choose where to have their parcels delivered. This can be at their home, but also at other locations such as PostNL points, safe places around the house and at an automated parcel locker. An advantage of using the alternative delivery locations is that the deliverers have to drive fewer needless kilometres. This contributes to the environment and habitat.

1,000 PostNL automated parcel lockers

Early next year, PostNL expects to install the 1,000th automated parcel locker. The goal is to expand this number to 1,500 by 2024, so that everyone in the Netherlands has a PostNL automated parcel locker nearby.

* The locations of the transformed automated parcel lockers are: Herenstraat 17 in Wijchen, Laan van Ouderzorg 2 in Leiderdorp en Boschdijk 289 in Eindhoven.
