FAQs about the surcharge for destinations outside of Europe (business)

These FAQs are aimed at businesses that send international shipments through their business account (Mijn PostNL) or through the PostNL API. The coronavirus measures being taken globally affect our international service provision. We are not delivering to some destinations at all at the moment, and for other destinations we are offering alternative transport. There are often other costs connected to this. From 13 April onwards, we therefore have no choice but to charge a temporary surcharge for shipments with destinations outside of Europe (Rest of World rate zone).
