Starting immediately, Selekt Mail has been named Neckermann´s exclusive partner for the delivery of catalogs and direct mail in Holland. This marks a further consolidation of Deutsche Post´s market position in the Netherlands.

The volume of catalog shipments alone is expected to amount to at least 50 million items per year. In the contract also companies as Quelle, Bon`A Parte and Peter Hahn are included.
