The Netherlands Post is a popular European service, the advantages of which include short delivery times, its reliability and zero risk of losing postal items during transportation. Moreover, the option to transport products with batteries is an important advantage of the Dutch service, which is prohibited in many countries due to difficulties in handling such parcels and the high risk of damage to the packaging due to electrolyte leakage. Today, the PostNL (Netherlands) service successfully delivers goods from the trading platforms of China and other Asian countries, guaranteeing recipients the timely delivery of parcels and their complete safety.

All parcels are accumulated in a single cargo collection and handling center, after which they are delivered to the Netherlands for sorting and dispatch to the destination.

The reimbursement of shipping costs on behalf of sellers is an important advantage of PostNL for recipients of some Chinese parcels, which saves the recipient from having to pay for postal services.
