Getting Started with PostNL Developer Center

The PostNL Developer Center offers a set of application programming interfaces (API's) that give you the means to incorporate PostNL functionality into your applications. This Developer Center describes how to create an account and get credentials to start building a connection with the Sandbox. Once you finish testing, you can move your application to the production environment.
