Optimise your shopping experience

When exporting to Switzerland you can offer your Swiss customers full transparency right from the moment they order. All costs are charged in advance and everything is already duty paid on delivery.

Entering the Swiss market

With efficient solutions for fulfillment, pre-collection, customs clearance, delivery, returns, back customs clearance and return transport, we simplify the entry into the lucrative Swiss market.

Simplify returns

Your customers can hand in their returns at one of 3,903 drop-off points in Switzerland. The further processing and reporting will be arranged according to your wishes.

Maximise first delivery rate

With pre-customs clearance, your customers can receive their orders without having to pay customs at the front door. What’s more, the goods can even be delivered if the recipient is not at home.

Shorten delivery times

When you are exporting to Switzerland we significantly shorten the transit times of your shipments through efficient pre-collection and automated postal customs clearance.

Simplify customs clearance

We transmit your customs clearance data automatically and forward them for customs clearance. All customs duties and value added tax are collected by Swiss customs. This makes export to Switzerland much easier.

Optimise delivery quality

Thanks to pre-clearance, your shipments will be delivered to your front door without additional payment being required, while the goods can even be delivered if the recipient is not at home. This increases the first delivery rate enormously.

Decrease costs

We process letters and parcels up to 2 kg in the same channel, meaning you only have to control one process when exporting to Switzerland. You can send small formats cheaply in the letter channel, optimising shipping and logistics costs.

Minimise reaction time

We continuously track the status of your shipments when you are exporting to Switzerland and often detect issues before they occur. We react quickly to emerging delivery problems and solve them proactively.

Optimise returns handling

We set up the handling of returns in a way that is optimal for your shop. You decide what you want to do yourself and what you want to outsource, for example having services such as the content check done by the post office.

Everything from one source

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.
