PostNL halts delivery revamp

Postal company PostNL has halted the revamp of its delivery operations following problems and complaints in Noord-Brabant and Utrecht, where the new system is being tried out, Nos television reports.

The company is now planning to consult workers and unions before resuming the operation, Nos says. The plan involves replacing the current 163 local delivery centres with nine centralised locations.
On Monday the AD reported a number of large companies had complained about late or missing post following the reorganisation, including online retailer, ABN Amro bank and a number of health insurance companies.
