Transparent rates

At ParcelParcel, we value clarity. The prices for sending a package abroad that you see in our rate comparison tool are inclusive of fuel surcharge. You won't encounter any surprises with us. We would like to explain why the costs of an international shipment are sometimes higher.

Import duties
Import duties are paid to the country where the package is being sent. In short, import duties may vary by country. Countries impose import duties to protect their own market against unfair competition in the form of (much) cheaper products.

The recipient may potentially be subject to import duties if you, as the sender, send packages and pallets to countries outside the European Union. Not sure if a country is part of the European Union? Check our list of European countries.

VAT (Value Added Tax)
This abbreviation stands for Value Added Tax, and countries impose this tax on the revenue you generate from selling goods.

You pay VAT for shipping goods to countries within the EU. You can reclaim these costs from the tax authorities when your shipment is of a business nature. For packages outside the EU, you do not need to pay VAT.

Customs clearance fees
The carrier checks whether there are any fees to be paid for importing the package you sent. Additionally, the carrier verifies the VAT rate. These costs are passed on to the recipient of the package by default.

When you send packages within the European Union, there are no import duties or customs clearance fees. You only incur these costs when importing packages from a country outside the EU because you are the recipient in an import shipment. In export shipments, all possible customs costs are always charged to the recipient.

Would you like to know more about paying import duties, VAT, and customs clearance fees? In our blog about costs for sending packages abroad, you can find a complete overview of the costs of international shipments.

Ways to send a package abroad

When sending a package, document, or pallet abroad, you have the choice between sending it by post or delivering it by courier (express shipment). Track & Trace information is often not accurate for postal shipments, and a signature for receipt is not always required. Would you like to know more about this difference? Read our blog about the difference between express and postal shipments.

Sending a package abroad: checklist

Do you want to send a package abroad but are unsure if the dimensions of your package comply with what is allowed? Do you need to add customs forms and pack the package in a special way? For all these questions, ParcelParcel has prepared a handy checklist for you, so you'll be ready to send your package abroad in no time. Also, read more about insured shipping of packages on our website.


What are the benefits of ParcelParcel?

"Isn't it cheaper to book my shipment directly with FedEx, DHL, TNT, or DPD?" This question is asked frequently. Because we make bulk purchases with the carriers, you benefit from lower prices and save up to 70% on shipping costs. Additionally, ParcelParcel provides free advice on preparing customs invoices and will contact the carrier on your behalf in case of any issues.

Sending commercial packages abroad

For sending goods to countries outside the European Union, you always need to include a so-called commercial invoice with your package. If the shipment is of a business nature, you must include this commercial invoice in triplicate. For non-commercial shipments, you need to attach a proforma invoice to the package. The type of invoice you use affects the amount of VAT, import duties, and customs clearance fees. You can learn more about the different invoices in our blog about preparing an invoice.

Delivery times for sending packages abroad

Shipments booked with us before 13:30 are often picked up the same working day. If you haven't managed to register your package by this time, feel free to call us to inquire about the possibilities at 085 877 16 56 (Netherlands) or 038 087 099 (Belgium). Our support team will gladly work to send your package as soon as possible.
