After online payment, the shipping label can be printed easily and placed on the parcel. This also applies to any necessary customs documentation. This enables individuals and business customers to prepare their shipments in a professional way. Parcels can then also be delivered to any of Kariboo’s 500 PostNL Parcel Points. And of course, the parcel can be followed online at all times. The cooperation with Kariboo gave PostNL instant access to an extremely large and extensive network for sending and receiving parcels throughout the Benelux.
The Online Shipping Tool is not only for businesses, sole traders and webshops. Private individuals who trade via the internet, or who just want to send a gift, or wish to return a pair of shoes they ordered, can also use this new service. PostNL is making it easy to send parcels world-wide, in anticipation of the expected growth in international e-commerce in Belgium. Consumers and businesses can already drop off their parcels for shipment at the Parcel Points. Later this year, it will also be possible to collect parcels 6 days a week. PostNL is responding to demand for a wider range of possibilities for sending and receiving parcels, both in terms of locations as well as opening times.
