In recent years, PostNL has grown faster than the market and wants to be able to continue this upward curve. As a result of its expansion, the company has increased its distribution capacity from 11,000 m2 to 44,000 m2. For example, the depot capacity in Roeselare doubled in size, requiring a move to Ardooie in the province of West Flanders.

Online shoppers want different options to receive their packages and quick, smooth handling. "More than two-thirds of consumers want to drive a maximum of five kilometers to collect their packages, unless it is on a commonly used route," says Rudy Van Rillaer, director of PostNL in Belgium. That's why the shipping company added 350 locations in Belgium, bringing the total number here to 1,850. In addition, the company's own locations come with a speed guarantee. Within 24 hours after a parcel arrives at PostNL, it is available for collection.
