Dutch package post will raise prices during gift season and Black Friday

PostNL will raise prices during SinterKlaas, Christmas and Black Friday. They claim that the package post infrastructure is not sufficient to cope with this raise in demand at those periods and so someone – the webshops, the consumers – have to pay for this spike.

PostNL increased turnover with 32m to 471m in the last quarter, with a 10% increase in volume. Doesn’t this mean that the extra capacity should be paid for using regular pricing?
