PTT wants to cut down home delivery to five days a week


Tags: Excerpts from the Windmill

AMSTERDAM - The former Dutch PTT postal services, now called TNT Post, wants the European Union to ease its regulations for home delivery. In the Netherlands, as happens in a number of other EU countries, mail gets delivered six days a week as part of the EUís service policy for its citizens. TNT Post contends that cutting one day from its delivery schedule would limit the need for raising prices as often. As well, the bulk of its former deliveries - bills - now are presented to customers by e-mail, as is a lot of other, more regular mail.
