PostNL offering morning food deliveries
PostNL has announced it has expanded its food service to include morning deliveries of groceries, meal boxes, and other fresh food products.
In a statement posted on Thursday (12 July), PostNL said that “from now on, consumers will also be able to receive their groceries between 8.00 and 13.00”.
The postal operator has been building up its food portfolio and currently delivers groceries, meal boxes, and special products, such as meat and sports foods, for more than 50 food suppliers.
According to PostNL: “The food orders from the various suppliers are bundled, and sorted and distributed from one hub. Receiving parties will be provided with precise information about the moment their fresh products are delivered. PostNL delivers food products within a time period of 30 minutes.”
The food is transported in coolboxes which can be re-used up to 500 times. The company added: “The PostNL coolbox is sealed and not opened before delivery, which allows for monitoring the temperature up to and including the moment of delivery. After delivery, the carrier takes the coolboxes back for return.”
