As a Dutch-based webshop owner, you are most likely also interested in, besides the Dutch market, shipping your products to other European countries such as Germany, United Kingdom, Denmark and France. Being known as the gateway to the European market for e-commerce companies shipping from outside the EU, the Netherlands’ shipping service providers are an important factor also for global players. As such, the effective logistics should not be underestimated by neither domestic nor international e-commerce businesses. To put the importance of logistics on the success in other markets into a perspective, 153 million parcels were sent cross-border from the Netherlands and 351 million parcels (of which, 240 million can be assigned to the B2C sector) were handled domestically in 2018.
Therefore, in order to establish and optimize Dutch-based order delivery for your webshop, your focus should be on choosing the most efficient shipping service provider in the Netherlands. The majority of webshop owners primarily look for cheap shipping and fast delivery. Especially the speed of the delivery became a business standard, as roughly 90% of shipped parcels in 2020 are already delivered the next day and that is also the standard Dutch customers expect from your business. So, to help you out with reaching the standards when shipping domestically or across Europe, we prepared a detailed overview of top 5 shipping companies in the Netherlands that are a great option for your e-commerce business.
