PostNL opens new Nieuwegein parcel centre

PostNL has announced it has opened a new distribution centre and parcel processing hub at Nieuwegein.

The new 9,400 square metre building is the postal operator’s largest parcel DC centre to date and also includes a pharma & healthcare and cargo hub.

PostNL released a statement earlier this week where it said that the central location of the Nieuwegein facility “contributes to the national coverage required to guarantee deliveries throughout the country 7 days a week”.

“Because consumers are also ordering large goods, such as garden furniture, online to an increasing extent, this distribution centre features additional facilities for large parcels that do not fit in the processing machine,” added PostNL.

Liesbeth Kaashoek, Director of Parcels and Logistics at PostNL, commented: “In order to respond to the growth of e-commerce, we have invested in our parcels and logistics infrastructure. Based in Nieuwegein, we deliver parcels to local consumers as well as companies, wholesalers, hospitals and pharmacies throughout the country. We can serve a large part of our online market from this location.”
