As migration from Poland has been so considerable over the decades, many people living in Britain still have family in this Central European country.
There has also been substantial traffic going in the opposite direction recently. Poland is becoming a popular tourism destination for British holidaymakers. It is also home to around 45,000 British expats who have gone there to find employment.
This is not least because Poland is working hard to build a strong business economy, and residents enjoy a good quality of life.
Crime is relatively low in Poland, and it boasts some beautiful historic cities such as Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow, Poznan, and Gdansk. It also has stunning, unspoilt countryside.
With close personal and trade ties between the UK and Poland, goods and personal items are travelling backwards and forwards more often. For some individuals and businesses, deliveries are required to Poland on a regular basis.
This makes it imperative to find an agent to deliver parcels from the UK to Poland who knows the country's geography and customs in depth.
