Shipping a parcel from the UK to the Netherlands

Send a parcel to the Netherlands, from £10.99

With a GDP of $1.004 trillion, the economy of the Netherlands is the 17 largest of the world and its high GDP per capita of over $58,000 makes it one of the highest earning nations globally. Despite its small size, the Netherlands contribute almost 5% to the European Union’s overall GDP and is the second most densely populated country of the EU.

As a founding member of the EU, the Eurozone, G10, NATO and the World Trade Organization, it also hosts several intergovernmental organizations and international courts in “the world’s legal capital” The Hague.

The small country in Europe is the world’s second-largest export of food and agricultural products thanks to its fertile soils and mild climate. Other export products include machinery and transport equipment, chemicals, mineral fuels and manufactured goods. Its main export partners are its direct neighbors Germany and Belgium, as well as the United Kingdom, France, and Italy.

With the Port of Rotterdam as the busiest seaport not only in Europe, but any country outside of Asia, and the Amsterdam Schiphol airport as the third busiest airport in Europe, it is a prime location for both export and import. Take advantage of all its opportunities with our affordable shipping rates starting at £10.99 and make UPS for small business your courier of choice.
