People in the Netherlands can expect to pay more to send letters or parcels by post next year. According to postal service PostNL, the price increases are necessary to keep the service profitable and running due to the decreasing mail volumes, the Telegraaf reports.

The price of a single postage stamp for a letter sent within the Netherlands will increase from the current 87 cents to 91 cents next year. Stamps for mail abroad will cost 1.50 euros, 5 cents more than now. The price for a December stamp is also increasing by 5 cents, to 0.82 euros.

In the run-up to Pakjesavond, PostNL processed a record number of around 12 million parcels in its distribution centers. Last year just under 10 million parcels were processed between Black Friday and December 4th, NU.nl reports.

According to PostNL, this figure was higher than expected, thanks to the increasing popularity of doing Sinterklaas shopping online. Black Friday and Cyber Monday were also busier than ever. The Dutch postal service is preparing for a similarly busy Christmas period.
