If you've seen your EU e-com sales reduce since Brexit and having EU parcels fustratingly lost, delayed, refused and returned, you're certainly not alone and you'll be over the moon you found this.

We think that to maintain and grow e-com sales in the EU it is vital that you and your EU customers have the same delivery experience and charges as they did before Brexit. The trouble is there appears to be no EU parcel delivery company that can competently enable this at the right price and service.........until now. We have engineered and implemented the UK's first hybrid EU parcel delivery service that successfully eliminates delivery issues caused by Brexit.

We understand your problems - is this you?......

  1. EU parcels returned, refused, delayed or lost with no explanation, long parcel delivery times & poor customer service.

  2. Parcel delivery companies adding Brexit related surcharges over and above the base freight charges, meaning shipping to the EU is a lot more expensive & complex.

  3. Your EU customers being hit with duty, VAT and expensive 'local handling charges' resulting in refusals, returns, frustration, loss of sales, extra cost and the risk of bad reviews.

  4. IOSS creating another layer of complexity, confusion and expense.

The result is that customers based in the EU have lost some confidence in buying from UK based e-com websites and some UK e-com companies have had to reluctantly stop or cut back their EU sales.

All sound familar? Frustrating isn't it?

There is another way....

We built you a bespoke solution that deals with all this....

At SAMOS we responded to Brexit by creating something completely new. We totally dismantled, re-mapped and re-engineered the whole UK to EU parcel delivery process. We tore up the rule books followed by the other mail and parcel delivery companies and created a unique hybrid EU customs clearance and parcel delivery solution, which has ultimately enabled hassle-free EU parcel shipping.

How does our service address your EU parcel shipping problems?

✔️ Customs issues resulting in refusals and returns will be a thing of the past. Your EU customers will again be confident to order from you and get your product to them without incurring further charges, or customs and delivery problems.

✔️ Simple charging structure without surcharges. You will know exactly what our charge will be before you ship it. Our tariff includes clearance and VAT/duty paid in advance. Just one simple low per parcel delivery rate which you can view by clicking here or by using the quote tool below. Our service is a 2-5 day delivery time across the EU, with full tracking PUDO & POD options.

✔️ No VAT, duty or any other 'handling' charges are ever requested from your customers. This eradicates refusals and returns because your customer will never have extra to pay on delivery.

✔️ You don't need an IOSS number to use our service. Therefore there is also no minimum or maximum value threshold. If you require an IOSS number we can help set you up by putting you in touch with our approved EU Intermediaries, which takes all the confusion and uncertainty away. Click here for more details.

✔️ We can integrate with just about any shop, WMS or shipping platform to automaiticaly produce our shipping labels using our API. Just let us know what you have and we're get the ball rolling for you.

‘’We are incredibly happy with the service provided by Samos and would recommend their EU shipment services to any businesses requiring a solution for EU logistics since Brexit. Deliveries are fast and our customers are happy. Samos take all the stress and hassle of the new (and confusing) requirements away and provide a comprehensive and fully rounded service for both us and our customers. It’s win-win solution. We were apprehensive about the future of shipping B2C into the EU after experiencing delays in transit and confusion around additional charges, until we joined Samos. They are incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and reliable, it really is joy to be working with them."

Daphne, Co-founder at TIC CC, tic-cc.com -

"We have been working with Samos since November 2021 to fulfil all our EU customer orders. Previously we had been using mail services, which meant a lot of hassle with customs and increased expenditure to the customer and us, and taking several weeks for parcel deliveries. We have trialled other courier companies, who’s services, pricing and customs issues have been appalling. 

Since using Samos our EU order deliver is running smooth and fast, without any issues. Customers also get delivery notifications, and can easily keep track of their parcels. Their online platform is very easy to use with minimal time spent to create shipping labels and customs paperwork. The prices are extremely competitive, and the customer services is the best we have experienced compared to any other delivery partner and couriers. This has been the best service provider we have worked with. I would highly recommend Samos!"
