Shipping times to Switzerland
No matter where your recipient lives Zurich, Geneva, Basel, Lausanne or Bern when sending a package you can expect a fast delivery due to the fantastic transport links in Switzerland, from the vast airports at Geneva and Zurich right down to expansive motorway networks. Express shipping can be as quick as 2-5 days, or if you need a cheaper service, transit times will be a little slower around 7-10 working days.
Switzerland is right at the heart of the European mainland, bordered by Germany, Austria, and France so understandably goods are often imported from these locations. Tourism to Switzerland is also big business, down partially to the fact its inhabitants speak multiple languages such German, French and Italian and of course by the popularity of the ski resorts, meaning plenty of parcels will continue to be sent to this destination.
