PostNL is the leading Postal operator in The Netherlands. PostNL offers products and services on the mail, parcel and e-commerce market in The Netherlands, as well as in the UK, Germany, Italy and Belgium.
PostNL aims to integrate the physical, financial, and electronic dimensions of postal services to enable and facilitate e-post, e-finance, e-commerce and e-government services around the world.
PostNL is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) available exclusively for the postal sector. It is a secure and trusted electronic infrastructure on the Internet to serve the needs of the global postal community.
Postal companies have for more than 100 years connected all people even in the most extreme circumstances by maintaining a world wide postal network. The crucial assets of this network are trust, interconnectivity and visibility as a world wide brand. These assets are of high value in a fast changing world caused by the digital transition.
More than 70 per cent of the world's Posts say that electronic services are strategically important to their business. This finding provides impetus to the goal of developing the PostNL platform. The PostNL platform interconnects current and future electronic postal services and makes them interoperable in a secure and trusted environment. It will authenticate postal service providers and strengthen the postal brand globally.
PostNL intends to link the physical and digital worlds, creating a secure platform that enables postal e-services to be delivered to all citizens and businesses. Applications, such as identity management, e-shops, e-payments, e-forms, secure postal mailboxes, address management, hybrid mail and advertising mail, would have a home on this future platform.
As the designated postal operator in The Netherlands, and a proud member of the Universal Postal Union, PostNL is keen to explore the possibilities of the PostNL platform
