This will coincide with PostNL's plans to expand its network of 400 parcel lockers to 1,500 lockers by 2024 across the Netherlands. 

In fact, PostNL has been expanding its network for some time already. Just this summer PostNL opened 350 new pick-up points in Belgium. Now it has announced plans of expanding its automated parcel locker network.

A new PostNL platform for parcel locker sharing 

Currently, PostNL has over 400 lockers in several locations and most of these lockers are available to customers 24/7. 

The idea of the company is to provide access to these 24/7 lockers to all other carriers operating in the Netherlands, as long as they fulfill a registration via a new online PostNL platform.

It is indeed using this future online platform, that the locker will be accessible to other carriers. 

With the new platform, consumers will be able to pick up parcels from multiple carriers at one location. Carriers who want to use PostNL’s network, will need to pay a fee when booking a locker. 

The fee depends on locker size and the number of days that a package stays inside the locker.

By 2024, the company wants to expand its network to 1,500 lockers across the country. The goal of the expansion is to make lockers accessible to more Dutch consumers.
