Our delivery services can provide you with a number of beneficial features, whenever you’re planning on shipping from the UK to the Netherlands:

Express services and specific delivery times

We will always aim to offer the fast, efficient courier services you need, whether you need a series of important documents delivered with a secure handover, or have been looking for the fastest way to send packages to Groningen from Birmingham. We understand wanting the swiftest, safest delivery possible for your goods, and our express services could see your items received in 2-3 working days. 

We’re also able to offer our customers time-specific collections and deliveries.

All we’ll need in return is the right address for your recipient, the delivery and transit time and the required speed. Our team will then take care of the rest.

Personal account managers to oversee your operations

We wish to work as closely with you as we possibly can. To help make this happen, we’ll assign you your very own personal account manager, so you can rest assured that your delivery operations are being overseen by a professional. Your account manager will be the one you go to whenever you need a question answered, or if you have to change a delivery date. They’ll even help you to cancel orders, if necessary.

You’ll be able to focus on the important job of running your business, while your account manager handles everything from billing to customs and documentation. They’ll even help you to navigate your way through peak shipping times and days of the year, such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Tracking your packages with our app

Being able to track any goods you’re sending abroad is a vital element in determining the success of a delivery firm. It’s also important to be able to see where your items are at any one time. This is why we’ve created a free, downloadable app for our customers to use when they need an update on their shipment.

Each parcel, pallet or package we send out will be given its own tracking number. Simply put this number into the app and it will give you updated information about your items. Alternatively, you can also call our head office in London to ask for an update.

Our app is available to download from the Google Play Store or the iOs App Store.

How to Address a Parcel to the Netherlands

When sending packages to the Netherlands, it’s important to note that there are some differences between address formats there and in the UK. For instance, the house or building number will usually come after the street name, while postcodes usually consist of four numbers, followed by two letters. 

When using titles, “Heer” is used for male recipients, as it means “Sir”. “Mevrouw” is used for female recipients and can be used for both “Ms.” and “Mrs”. 

The formatting for a Dutch address should therefore be as follows:

The name of the recipient

The street name, building name or number and any extra information about the building

The postcode

The city and the country

In practice, this should be written as follows:

Heer G. Visser

Olmendaal 43




Will I Need to Deal with Customs in the Netherlands?

The UK may have left the European Union, but this doesn’t mean you will have to deal with Dutch customs. Even after existing, frictionless arrangements end on 31st December 2020, our team will take care of everything for you so that you can focus on running your business.
