Those who want to send a postal package abroad are more expensive. Due to the decrease in the number of international flights, PostNL has created a temporary surcharge.

Due to the decrease in the number of international flights as a result of the corona measures, transport costs are rising. PostNL is now trying to cover these costs by levying a temporary additional surcharge on packages to overseas areas. The surcharge averages four euros per kilogram.

PostNL has consulted with watchdog ACM. This judges that the temporary allowance falls entirely within the legal frameworks. ACM reports this on its own website.

As soon as the corona measures are no longer necessary, PostNL will cancel the extra surcharge.
