Spain is ranked as the 15th largest e-commerce market globally, with anticipated revenues of $33,536.1 million in 2024. Within Europe, it surpasses other major regions, such as the Netherlands. If you're contemplating expanding your e-commerce business to Spain, grasping the habits and preferences of Spanish online shoppers is essential to guarantee the successful delivery of products in optimal conditions.

In this article, we list six of the best Spanish parcel delivery companies and the aspects you should take into account when choosing the best one for your business.

Aspects to take into account

The needs of the business, its goals, and priorities are important, but customer and market preferences must also be taken into account. Finding the right parcel delivery provider for your online shop can have both immediate and long-term positive effects. For this reason, we focus on some key points to consider:

  • Type of product of your e-commerce company
    Not all products need the same packaging system, so be aware of whether your product needs special transport or some kind of wrapping materials. Moreover, rates and prices of delivery companies differ in terms of size, weight, and nature of your products.
  • Delivery time
    More than half of consumers consider a delivery time between 1 and 3 days to be reasonable. So choosing a parcel delivery company that offers this is key.
  • Customer service
    The most common way to make complaints or ask questions about the package is through customer service. Here the customer has two options: either to go directly to the point of sale or to contact the parcel delivery company. For this reason, it is very important that the supplier you work with has reliable, fast, and clear customer service so any queries get resolved.
