The benefits of receiving an international parcel
- Delivery Monday-Saturday
- Change your delivery details after a first failed delivery attempt and enter your preferred delivery day or a PostNL Location
- Two delivery attempts, then it is held at a PostNL Location for fourteen days
- Is your parcel originating from The Netherlands? You can then choose to have your parcel directly delivered at one of the 1100 PostNL Locations* (standard delivery time is 48hrs).
How does it work?
Is your parcel or mail from outside Europe? Then it will have to go through customs. In the Netherlands, PostNL has its own sorting centre with a customs department. They check the letters and parcel contents with their accompanying customs clearance documents. Once the mail has been cleared in Belgium, letters with an RS code go to the local Belgian post office. Parcels with a CD or 3S code are delivered by PostNL.
