ELAINE BROWN
Great price and great service
Had some confusion when email received saying DDP had tried to deliver a parcel to the Netherlands at 00.46 Contacted Parcel hero who looked into the matter and emailed back straight away to say that the driver had actually not attempted to deliver but had run out of time and delivery would be made later in the day. Parcel arrived as planned later that day. Would definitely use Parcel Hero again.

Good sevice for awkward sized parcel
Picked up on time & delivered on specified day and was able to track its progress Very few carriers would take a 220 x 33 x 18cm parcel withou it costing more than the item I was returning. Would definitely recommend this carrier.

Doing business in Africa

Africa is a huge continent with dizzying potential. If you’re thinking of doing business in Africa, it's no longer all about the biggest countries by GDP (Nigeria, Egypt, South Africa and Algeria), because you can no longer ignore fast growing and diverse economies like Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and Ghana. As these countries grow, so does the demand for international goods, presenting an incredible opportunity for UK retailers to establish their brands.

What's more many African countries have relatively low rates of Duty and VAT. For example, Nigerian VAT is 7.5%, far lower than the UK. So, if you’re a business thinking of exporting to Africa, there's never been a better time to consider it.
