Some mail delay in and around Amsterdam due to power failure

Today residents in and around Amsterdam will only receive some of their mail, and in some cases none at all. The cause is a power failure over night in the Sloterdijk area of Amsterdam, which also affected the PostNL sorting centre.

The company is trying to get as much mail as possible delivered by tomorrow. Around a half million mail items have been delayed. The power failure has not affected parcel delivery in the Amsterdam region.
