Additional Information

Post Denmark expects to close three out of five distribution centres west of Storebælt by the summer 2005. The main reason is the extented use of e-mail on the cost of slow-mail letters. 100 employees will leave for natural reasons, and the 500 others will be offered jobs at other centres.
