Thousands of extra parcel deliverers to join PostNL’s own payroll
As many as possible on permanent contracts
The Hague, the Netherlands, 25 August 2022 – PostNL will recruit thousands of parcel deliverers onto its own payroll over the next few years. It is boosting three crucial elements in its way of working: as many permanent contracts as possible, longstanding partnerships and climate-friendly delivery. PostNL aims to ensure that, over time, at least half of all parcels are delivered by people in its employ. This number is currently at 1,900 and should grow to around 6,000 deliverers. Meanwhile, delivery partners will be actively encouraged to grow, to further professionalise and to green their services. For parcels deliverers working at delivery partners, permanent contracts remain the standard as well.
