Courier services in Belgium

Courier companies in Belgium offer their services to private and corporate clients. Business-to-customer services or business-to-business services are tailored to the needs of the clients and to the particularities of the items they need shipping for. Larger companies in Belgium also provide shipping solutions for retailers.
One of the main reasons to open a courier business in Belgium is the country’s favorable location. Because Belgium has a central location in Europe, many courier and package delivery companies offer deliveries to neighboring countries like Germany, France or even the United Kingdom. You can choose to base your courier business in one of the main Belgian cities like Brussels, Ghent or Antwerp and then expand your services to other cities and finally to neighboring countries. 
Investors in Belgium can also look for franchise opportunities for a courier business in Belgium. One of our Belgian company formation agents can give you details about the franchising requirements in Belgium and how you can explore this option if you want to start a courier business.
