The Complexities of Importing into the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a prime example of a thriving IT industry. Renowned worldwide for being the most reliable industry globally, as well as the most connected country in the world with 98% of all Dutch households having a broadband connection. The Netherlands is also considered to be the most completive country with the second-best broadband in all of Europe. It is therefore no wonder that the Netherlands is a popular import and export destination with world leaders such as IBM, Microsoft, Google, and NTT having their European HQ’s here. With recent changes in the definition of exporter throughout the EU, exporting out of the Netherlands now requires a physical entity to be set up within the EU. There are also certain carriers that should be avoided when shipping into the Netherlands.
