How does it work?

As the sender, you choose which options to offer your customers. Our delivery drivers make a standard of two delivery attempts. Is your customer not at home for both delivery attempts and can’t the parcel be delivered to the neighbours? Then, it will be brought to the nearest PostNL Location. 

Your customer will receive a notification in their letterbox and possibly also an e-mail. They will have fourteen days to pick up their parcel. If your customer is not at home on the first delivery attempt, they can change the date and PostNL Location for the next delivery attempt. 

As a regular customer, we can offer you several extra services and benefits. For example, you can select the option to have the parcel delivered only to your customer and not to the neighbours. You can also opt to ship a parcel with the Cash on Delivery (COD) option, where your customer will pay the delivery driver upon receipt.
