As a logistics e-commerce company, PostNL is offering more and more services that go further than just delivery, such as connecting and installing household appliances and consumer electronics. With the acquisition of JP Haarlem Delivery, PostNL now also offers high quality service in the delivery and installation of furniture in consumers’ homes.
In addition to delivering post and parcels, PostNL also offers delivery and installation services for large and heavy consumer items. The specialised deliverers working for PostNL Extra@Home provide an ‘over the threshold’ service with the installation and connection of washing machines, the assembly of garden furniture sets and the installation of kitchen equipment. In acquiring JP Haarlem Delivery, PostNL is adding the assembly of furniture to its range of services.
JP Haarlem Delivery is a logistics service provider primarily focused on the delivery and assembly of furniture in the Benelux region. The company serves many furniture stores in the middle and high segment. On behalf of these stores, JP Haarlem Delivery delivers and assembles furniture to hundreds of consumer homes daily. JP Haarlem Delivery will continue to operate as a ‘standalone’ company under the PostNL banner. In doing so, JP Haarlem Delivery will retain its own network, current management and personnel with specific knowledge and experience in the branch.
Paul Hoefsloot, founder and continuing director: ‘With the acquisition by PostNL, we link our specific service provision as JP Haarlem Delivery to the strong position that PostNL holds in the area of e-commerce logistics. This lays a solid foundation for further improving our customer service and expanding consumer choice.’
Gerrit Mastenbroek, Director Parcels & Logistics: ‘Companies and consumers are increasingly looking for a complete solution. This goes beyond just the delivery of parcels. PostNL aims to further expand “over the threshold” services for consumers. JP Haarlem Delivery offers high quality furniture delivery and assembly services to consumers at home. With this acquisition, we will be adding specialist knowledge and experience to our network, enabling us to provide a complete service in the Home & Garden market.’
