On a clear day, you can see France across the Channel from some parts of southern England. And it will be no surprise to hear that the volume of courier deliveries going back and forward between the UK and its nearest continental neighbour is substantial. After all, there are hundreds of thousands of British expats in France - and vice versa - regularly receiving parcels and gifts from their family back home.
France is the second largest consumer market in Europe – and the world’s fifth largest economy - meaning that couriers are sending parcels from the UK 24 hours a day, seven days a week. France is considered to be an easy country to do business with, as it shares many characteristics with the UK, meaning products delivered from the UK to France have a favourable reception. British companies have good trade links and regionalised support to rely on. They can supply goods direct to customers or via agents in France.
