What is a peak surcharge?

In order to be able to process and deliver as many parcels as possible during the busy end-of-year period, carriers take additional measures. More staff and equipment are hired especially for this period. To partly offset the costs for this, carriers apply a peak surcharge. From 20 November to 31 December 2021, a peak surcharge will therefore apply to parcels that are sent through PostNL with a destination within the Netherlands, within Europe, outside of Europe and parcels that are returned by the recipient. The peak surcharge amounts to €0.25 and is applied on top of your regular price and existing surcharges for sending a parcel.
