Why Choose The Delivery Group When Sending Cargo to Germany?

We can provide you with a number of advantageous features, which you can utilise whenever you’re shipping from the UK to Germany:

We provide express services and specific delivery times

We understand that you will have a deadline to meet, and it can be frustrating to have to wait for a delivery service to arrive and hand over important items. No matter if you’re a business owner in London and need a secure service to safely transfer documents to a client, or have cargo that needs to be sent to customers in Dresden immediately, we have the service you need. Our express delivery services can ensure that when you send a parcel to Germany, it will arrive in 1-3 working days, all at a price which suits your budget.

If you need to ensure that your items will arrive by a specific date, we can also provide you with time-specific collection and delivery options. So, if you need a package collected at a time you’ve set out with us, we can make sure it’s delivered door to door on the day that suits your needs best. Simply provide us with the relevant details, such as the address, delivery and transit time and speed, and we will handle the rest.

Your personal account manager

When you choose to work with us, you’ll be given your very own account manager. They will provide you with advice and support whenever you’re shipping from the UK to Germany, no matter if you have a question about the process or need to change a delivery date. As an expert team member, they’ll also be able to help you rescind orders where necessary and oversee all other operations. This leaves you with more time to focus on the most important parts of running your business, while they take care of billing, customs and documentation, duty and taxes.

Your account manager will also be able to help you calculate the cheapest shipping rates, as well as guiding you through the busiest shipping days of the year, including Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Streamlined Services for Your eCommerce Business

If you’re interested in finding the cheapest shipping rates to save revenue for your eCommerce business, our service can provide you with everything you need. We can help you find the best price for your budget, from a courier which doesn’t compromise on quality. We’ll do this for you whether you’re looking for a service to ship items abroad regularly, or even if you’ll only be sending a handful of items sporadically. We will also work with you closely to make sure every package sent is collected, securely wrapped and packed away before its delivery.

We are also a price-competitive service, so if you find online rates that appear to be the cheapest you’ve seen, we are more than certain that we can calculate a price to match it. To find out more about this part of our work, please see our page on shipping for eCommerce businesses.

Our App Works As Your Tracking Tool

Being able to track parcels is a vital element in determining the success of a courier firm in the modern era. It’s also important to be able to oversee the movement of your items, so that you know exactly where your goods are and can see that they have been delivered to the recipient. This is why we have created a free, downloadable app for you to use whenever you’re sending packages or parcels abroad.

We will provide you with a tracking number, which you will then be able to enter into the app. Doing this will show you the current location of your shipped items. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to speak to one of our members of staff, you can also call our head office in London and they will be able to tell you where your packages are currently.

Our tracking app is free and available to download in the Google Play Store or the iOs App Store.

Addressing Parcels You’re Sending to Germany

It’s important to remember that Germany has strict conditions for formatting addresses. The house number for German addresses goes after the street name, while the postcode is put before the name of the town or city.

The formatting therefore appears as follows:

The recipient’s name

The street name and number

The postcode and town

The country

In practice, this appears as:

Mrs P. Herzog

Nordweg 7

01468 Moritzburg

GERMANY

Will I Need to Deal With Customs in Germany?

The UK may have left the European Union, but this doesn’t mean you will have to worry about German customs. Even once existing, frictionless arrangements end on 31st December 2020, our team will take care of everything so that you can focus on other aspects of your business.

Are There Any Prohibited Items I Cannot Send to Germany?

There are a number of items and packaged goods that you cannot send from the UK to Germany, as well as further restrictions on others.

Prohibited and restricted items include:

  • Live animals
  • Animal and plant products (including live trees and plants, cut flowers and ornamental foliage)

How Much Will it Cost to Send Cargo to Germany?

No matter if you’re based in London and need to get your package all the way to Munich as soon as possible, we will find you the cheapest rates available.
