Import of goods from China, USA and Germany

In the global economy, China competes with the USA for 1st place. Outside the EU, except for these two countries, there are no economic locations with the same importance for foreign trade, which also has a direct impact on imports. In 2021, the Dutch economy imported goods worth around 757 billion US dollars (source: WTO, ©Statista 2022).

The share of imported goods from China to the Netherlands was 10.18% in 2021. The import of goods from China is about more than just bridging long distances. Cultural, linguistic and social differences also have an impact and often lead to misunderstandings, additional costs and, in the worst case, shipping delays. Instead of painstakingly comparing prices and services on various websites and local transport service providers, you have all the secure shipping solutions of well-known service providers at a glance. If you have any problems booking your shipment, our shipping experts will be happy to advise you personally and can offer you shipping alternatives.

The most important importing country for the Netherlands in 2021 was Germany with a share of 17.4% of total imports, followed by China and the USA as well as neighbouring countries such as Belgium (9.92%) and France (3.55%) (source: WTO, April 2022). In order to bring your import Netherlands safely to a destination, you can access a worldwide network of shipping service providers on our multi-carrier shipping platform and book easily. The costs for an import from, for example, China or Germany are clearly displayed to you in the cost comparison.
