More baggage allowance and fast track at most of all airports: Flying Blue Platinum status (SkyTeam Elite Plus), Turkish Airlines Gold (Star Alliance Gold), British Airways Silver (One World Sapphire) and Privium at AMS means fast security and biological access at migration.

Can drive easily to parts in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Also easy parking at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport possible.
- Network of couriers
In the network of a group of Dutch couriers from different parts of the country to help with first miles, last miles and jobs where multiple couriers are required. Helpful to each other and clients.
- Reliable and responsible
Never lost any shipment or neglected the responsibilities of the transport. Every client gets the same threatment like it should be. Also privacy of clients and shipments are guaranteed. All efforts are put into place to obtain the best results.
- Flexible and fast
Speed is key. But when things do not go as expected I will make sure the best option B is chosen in consultation with client and consignee. Short nights are part of the business when it helps to get the best results.
- Experience with customs formalities
Mondial experience with customs. I always keep calm and make sure the correct procedures are being followed at customs. When there are problems I am a professional assisting authorities to get the shipment cleared.
Courier experience in statistics
- Single leg flights since start
- Kms flown
- Countries visited
Done with multiple couriers
If a large volume or weight needs to be transported I have a network of multiple couriers in posession of frequent flyers status to transport large shipments together and cost effective.
For some countries it can also be convenient to enter with multiple couriers because of the maximum import value.
With this network of couriers we bundle experience but also know good road partners for first or last mile transports.
