Using Spring to send your mail to the Netherlands makes it easier for you to compete with local suppliers, because your mail item will bear a Dutch postage paid symbol. This will give your customers the impression that your mail was posted in the Netherlands and you will instantly create a perception of being a company based in the Netherlands. If you send your mail via the alternative distribution network, you also have the opportunity to create your own post paid symbol to suit the design of your mail piece. Let your creative juices flow to make an impact on your target audience!
Whether you send business correspondence, direct mail, catalogues, magazines, newspapers or other printed matter, there is a Destination Netherlands service that suits your needs.
Letters are items of a personal nature, like invoices and statements. They contain information that is specific to you or your company.
When you send letters to the Netherlands and use TNT Post's national delivery network, you have a choice of two services. Each service has its own criteria and advantages. Your choice may depend on the type of letter item you send, the delivery speed you require or the number of items you send. If your letter items are over 50 grams, you can also opt for the alternative distribution network of Netwerk VSP.
Direct Mail Services
Direct mail items (including printed matter) are less personal than letter items. Think of direct mail shots, catalogues, brochures, magazines. It is usually information you can exchange or share with someone else.
There are a number of services available to you if you decide to use TNT Post for sending your direct mail items to the Netherlands. Apart from the standard Direct Mail service, there are two specialist services for periodicals and relationship magazines. So, your choice will depend on the type of direct mail you send, the number of items you send and the delivery speed you require. Netwerk VSP’s alternative network is also available for all your direct mail items.
If you send unaddressed mail and want to target specific groups, TNT Post can offer you a choice of several targeting techniques based on its socio-demographic information, when you use its Unaddressed Mail service.
TNT Post’s parcel service network covers both the Netherlands and Belgium. They offer a 24-hour service only (measured from when your parcels are handed over to TNT Post in the Netherlands or Belgium) against a reasonable rate. The service also offers a track and trace option on each item that enters the parcels distribution network, thus competing easily with its express competitors.
When you send mail that requires a response, including an easy-to-use response mechanism is key. Consider including a prepaid reply card or envelope to obtain that response. You may also want to consider using this service to have unwanted or faulty goods return to you and use it as a reversed mail logistics option.
