Do PostNL delivery executives leave parcels at the doorstep?

What should you do if you do not receive the PostNL package?

There is nothing to worry about if you have not received the PostNL package, as the company is committed to rendering hassle-free delivery service. However, you have not received a package for the following two reasons.

  • You were not present at your residence, and the delivery executive did not leave the package at your doorstep, judging its confidentiality.
  • The delivery executive may have failed to reach your location for various technical and non-technical reasons.

If PostNL fails to deliver a package on a particular day, it will attempt another delivery the next day.

Typically, PostNL holds a parcel for seven days after unsuccessful delivery attempts. However, some packages contain products with short expiry periods.

Instead, the products are returned to the sender in the case of failed delivery attempts.

Will you get compensation for the lost items?

PostNL is committed to resolving delivery disputes quickly to ensure seamless customer satisfaction. The receiver should complain to the sender if they get a damaged package. The sender can ask for compensation in such cases. However, the matter will be thoroughly investigated before providing compensation.
