Dutch economic mission on working visit to Hanoi

31 March 2011
At the end of March, a delegation from a Dutch economic mission paid a visit to Shore in Hanoi, Vietnam. Pim Berendsen, Managing Director of PostNL Data & Document Management, also joined the mission.

 Alongside around a hundred other people, the mission that travelled from the Netherlands to Vietnam included:


- Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Máxima of the Netherlands;

- Mr Henk Bleker, Minister of Agriculture and Trade;

- Mr Joop Atsma, State Secretary of Infrastructure and the Environment.


Shore in Asia

Shore, an independent company within PostNL Data & Document Management, is currently the largest data-entry employer in Vietnam and also operates in the Philippines. For both countries Shore video codes over 220 million illegible postcodes and addresses on letters each year.


Mario Suykerbuyk, Managing Director of Shore: "We initially selected these locations in Asia due to their processing speed, flexibility and scalability, as well as the high level of quality being offered. Cost considerations also played a key role in the decision. We especially benefited from the scalability and flexibility in December, traditionally our busiest time of year, with a staggering 500,000 mail items being digitised every hour - a phenomenal performance!"
