Postal deliveries could be cut to three days a week, if EU says yes
If the European Union gives permission, Dutch postal company PostNL could cut its deliveries to three days a week, a spokesman says in Wednesday’s AD.
European Union rules state post must be delivered five days a week but moves are being made to relax this, the AD says. PostNL stopped Monday deliveries at the beginning of this year.
‘If the EU allows it, we will cut back to four or perhaps even three delivery days,’ spokesman Werner van Bastelaar told the AD.
Postal volumes are falling faster in the Netherlands than in other EU countries because of the high internet density, he said. ‘We are listed on the stock exchange and have to make money.’
