How to send a parcel to Finland? Required documents
When sending a parcel from Switzerland to Finland, please enclose the proforma invoice that is automatically generated via Expedismart.ch. For a new product, the proforma invoice is not the invoice you received from your shop. This document informs finish customs about the contents of your parcel. However, if the goods are to be resold after arrival in Finland, enclose a commercial invoice with the shipment, which is also automatically generated on Expedismart.ch. For higher value goods, we recommend taking out insurance. The cost of insurance is 1% of the declared value of the goods. If you wish, you can arrange this directly when preparing the consignment.
Compare the service and price for a shipment to Finland with us. Furthermore, you can choose the carrier (such as FedEx, DHL, Aramex, or TNT) that will collect your parcel at the time of your choice and deliver it safely to Finland.
