Everything you need to know about shipping to The Netherlands

Clearing Customs in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a member of the European Union, so shipments from within the EU won’t have to worry about clearing customs. That means you won’t have to pay duties or taxes, and your parcel will move more quickly through the process.

If you’re shipping from outside the European Union, you will have to clear customs.

Can I send extra heavy weight parcels to the Netherlands?

Regardless of whether you have an oversize package or a full consignment on a pallet, ParcelHero specialises in making your shipment quick and simple. We work with freight and large package specialists like TNT to make sure you’re getting a great price and excellent service.

Can I send flowers from the Netherlands to the UK?

Dutch tulips may be famous worldwide, but unfortunately you can’t ship goods that are perishable with ParcelHero, which includes plant matter. You are allowed to send some seeds, so be sure to check with your destinations customs team before booking your shipment.

Can I ship food from the Netherlands to the UK?

Though the Netherlands may not be known for their delicious delicacies as much as their neighbours Belgium, there’s still plenty of tasty treats on offer. If you’d like to send some to the UK, you’ll need to ensure that they are store bought and original packaging. You can’t send goods that are perishable either, so your Oma’s handmade spekulaas won’t be in your Christmas stocking.

How do I address a parcel to the Netherlands?

The key to a successful delivery is a proper address, and like anywhere in the world, the Netherlands has its own rules about how to do so. When addressing a package bound for Holland, make sure to include:

  • The name of the recipient
  • The street name, and then house number
  • The town
  • The postcode
  • The name of the country

When you put all of these elements together, you will end up with something like the below:

John Smith

Prinses Beatrixlaan 23


2595 AK


Postcodes in the Netherlands are made up four digits, followed by a pair of uppercase letters. The first two digits indicate city and region, while the next two and the pair of letters are determined by house number and street. The uppercase letters SS, SD and SA remain unused, as they are associated with the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands.

Do you deliver on public holidays?

Christmas comes early in the Netherlands, but that’s not the only day that your couriers won’t deliver. We need a day or two to catch our breath every now and then, so we don’t deliver on weekends or public holidays. Make sure to take the dates below into account when you are booking your shipment.

Doing Business in the Netherlands

As one of the EU’s most competitive economies, the Netherlands is an appealing destination for businesses large and small. The Netherlands is also known for their willingness to adopt new technologies – like electric delivery trucks. With economic growth over the last three years expected to continue, it’s a great time to be looking to ferry your business across to Holland.

There are over 400 UK businesses operating in the Netherlands, with trade between the two countries worth over £36 billion, making the Netherlands the UK’s fourth largest trading partner. Some of the UK’s most common exports to the Netherlands include:

  • Mineral fuels, oils and distillation products
  • Vehicles
  • Electrical, electronic equipment
  • Optical, photo, technical, medical apparatus

Because of the relatively small size of the Netherlands’ market, it’s considered good practice to work with a local representative to build strong relationships and understand local requirements. It’s not necessary however, and you can choose to export directly if you desire. For more information on exporting to the Netherlands or opportunities to do business, you can visit our government trading partner Exporting is Great, or have a look through the government's Exporting Guide for the Netherlands.
