Simplified customs for a better shopping experience
Duties and taxes? That's settled!
Our system makes automated collection of all costs in advance possible, keeping your clients happy.
Individualised and cleverly thought-out services for your entire shipping process - from your online shop to your customers' doorstep. And back again if you have to.
The network of international branches, as well as the combination of fulfiller and carrier into one unit, guarantees you the fastest and most cost-effective fulfillment and pre-collection solution.
Swiss Post organizes the collection and export customs clearance for you, allowing you to have your shipments picked up or deliver them yourself, without presorting.
Because fully automated customs clearance takes places during the preliminary collection stage, lengthy customs clearance procedures at the Swiss border are avoided.
Your goods will be checked in at our logistics hub and the receipt of those goods will be confirmed to customs. At this point, we separate letters and parcels and feed the deliveries into the respective channel.
LMD = Last-Mile-Delivery: Within 24 hours of handling in our logistics hubs, your shipments are delivered by the Priority Service in either the letter channel or the parcel channel.
We will take care of the return transport of your shipments to your warehouse in the country of origin, and at the return frequency you choose.
On the basis of the import data, as part of an automated process we take back the customs clearance of your goods, and reclaim the paid duties and taxes in your favour.
Our e-commerce returns management tool takes into account your requirements, your wishes for content review and delivers reports tailored to your needs. Destruction of returned goods is also possible.
FMD = First-Mile-Delivery: We ensure that your returns reach Swiss Post's returns hub quickly and safely. Your customer can print out the return label on demand or you can enclose it with your shipment.
