PostNL delivered record number of parcels in 2021

PostNL delivered a record number of parcels last year and increased gross profit. Due to the corona pandemic, the postal and parcel company started doing more business last year in the processing and delivery of mail and parcels. Employees, partners and retailers also benefit from the results.

Best bitch Herna Verhagen describes 2021 as an “exceptional year” in the release of annual figures. A year that begins and ends in prison. PostNL delivered 384 million parcels last year, an increase of 13.8% compared to 2020. Without the corona pandemic, growth would have been 11.7%. Mail delivery decreased by 0.5% in volume, but without the corona mail (for example, letters from the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport calling for a vaccine) the decrease would have been 5% in line with the long-term trend.

PostNL had a turnover of almost 3.5 billion euros, compared to almost 3.3 billion in 2020. The net profit is 258 million euros, compared to 42 million euros a year ago. This profit result is not structural, as € 82 million consists of corona-related activities such as corona mail delivery during the recall campaign.
