One of the first things that “shocked” me positively when I arrived to the Netherlands was how efficient the post is!

I guess this was caused by a contrast with my birth country, where post is not and could not be used for every day communication. In my birth country you couldn’t send a letter to someone and that person receive it the next day, and you couldn’t buy online and receive the purchased item via regular mail the next day.

Send today, receive tomorrow

But in NL, you can count on the post to work perfectly fine and plays an important role in the infrastructure of the society. Most communications with State offices and paperwork are handled via the post, and your documents usually arrive safely and within a day or two.

You can also buy online and receive your products efficiently via the post. And, if you are not home, the postman might leave your package in a shop next door, or even at the stairs in your building, and this is usually quite safe as well!

Both for personal and for business purposes, this actually makes life quite easier and smoother for many communications and transactions, which in my country are more complicated or expensive.
