16 July 2021, The Hague, Netherlands – Post-Services NL is rapidly extending its network in Belgium in response to rising market demand. Two new parcel depots will open in September 2021, while Post-Services NL will open its first high-tech sorting and distribution center in the country and break ground on a second the following year. Hundreds of new jobs will be created as a result of the project.
Always be updated to know new centers available for shipping.
E-commerce in Belgium is continuing to grow apace and Post-Services NL is upscaling capacity to continue to deliver all parcels swiftly and smoothly. Two new depots in Oevel and Desteldonk are scheduled to open in September 2021, adding some 300 runs a day* and creating scope to deliver tens of thousands of additional parcels a day.
Post-Services NL currently has seven parcel depots in Belgium, operating from Sint-Niklaas, Ardooie, Namen, Vilvoorde, Wommelgem, Sint-Truiden and Mechelen. The two latest additions will account for around 18,000 square metres of additional depot space.
Early in 2022, Post-Services NL will open its first Belgian high-tech sorting and distribution centre in Willebroek, and current growth is driving major efforts to prepare for the construction of a second such centre in East Flanders. This is planned to become operational by the second half of 2022.
Additional jobs will be generated at these new depots and distribution and sorting centres both at PostNL and at its delivery partners. These expansions in Belgium are part of planned investments in Post-Services NL’s capacity growth.
