Delivery date

Find out the expected delivery date or proposed send date

With this API you can determine the first date customers can receive their parcels. And it is also possible to determine the date you need to supply the parcels to PostNL in order to have the parcels delivered to your customers on a given shipping date.

Why use the delivery date API

  • Recommended starting point

    A starting point in the Timeframe API to show customers the possible day and time of arrival.

  • Avoid showing impossible delivery dates

    PostNL delivery days and dates are always up to date by using this service and takes into account ‘non-business’ days like Sundays and public holidays.

  • Find out the delivery date and send date of parcels

    This API contains two methods; it calculates the expected delivery date for shipment and can calculates the date to handover or send the shipments.
