This how-to guide describes the different shipping solutions that Swiss online sellers can use to deliver products to customers in the European Union. Our discussion focuses primarily on the services offered by the Swiss Post, but we also explain what other options are generally available to Swiss companies.
We talk to a representative from the Swiss Post about what they can offer online sellers, particularly companies that are new to e-commerce. You’ll learn about all the associated requirements, such as VAT registration, fiscal representation and more.
Benefit from an online seller’s first-hand experience with the Swiss Post
Practical insights are provided by an online retailer that relies on the Swiss Post for their shipping. They explain which postal products they chose and why, how they set everything up, and the effect those services have on their logistics and customs processing.
We’ll also help you weigh up whether shipping from Switzerland is really your best option. Sometimes it can make more sense to use a distribution warehouse within the EU, for example.
