Denmark cuts to postal system

Post Danmark, Denmark’s national postal system, is planning reductions in its services next year because of the decrease in the volume of written mail.

About 1,500 red letter boxes around the country are set to go and those that remain will be emptied less frequently. The plan also includes the closure of large post offices and the transfer of the postal services into supermarkets.

Because of the spread of emailing, the number of letters sent through the postal system has halved in the last decade. But those who still write letters, and can not find a post box close to their home, may hand their correspondence directly to the postman.

At the same time Post Danmark is remodernising its service in some cities with its newly designed two and three-wheeled electric delivery bikes. These are part of Post Danmark’s strategy to cut its carbon emissions by 40 per cent by 2020.
