Postal Services to Belgium

Belgium is a relatively small country compared to its neighbours France and Germany, with an estimated population of 11.2million people. The strong connection between Belgium and France makes Asendia the perfect channel to use when sending your business mail and parcels to Belgian recipients. 

Facts about Belgium

Facts about Belgium

In Belgium established communication methods prevailed during the global economic crisis and continue to do so. Digital media only holds a small 6% share of overall advertising expenditure for the country.

According to the ‘Door to Door Impact Survey 2014’ by BD (Belgique Diffusion – a provider of unaddressed advertising mailings), unaddressed advertising mailings have a large impact on the purchasing behaviour of consumers in Belgium. 75 % of individuals surveyed indicated that they were influenced by offers when making purchases and 88 % used vouchers that they received. The study concludes that acceptance of unaddressed advertising mailings in Belgium is high. According to the ‘Letterbox Consumer Survey 2014’ study by the Belgium Direct Marketing Association (BDMA), only 4 addressed mailings are sent in Belgium per person every week. As a result of this small quantity, personalised mailings are accepted and read by 87% of those surveyed. 23 % of those surveyed even indicated that they responded to the mailing either directly or indirectly.

More and more Belgians are buying online. However, the online shops do not have to forgo the traditional catalogue: The average order value of online buyers who have already received a catalogue by post is 16 % higher.

Tips for mailing to Belgium

Tips for mailing to Belgium

Direct marketing reaches one of the highest reminder values in Belgium. In 67 % of all cases, the consumer can remember the brand or core message even after having seen it for a short time.

When sending mail into Belgium, you must take into account the differing languages – especially when addressing the end consumer. Belgium has three official languages: Dutch, French and German. Around 60 % of the population speaks Flemish, about 40 % speak French and just under one percent speak German. Individuals included in address lists and databases have clearly assigned language codes to ensure that they receive communications in the correct language. In B2B, offers are also acceptable in English.

In 2012, a total of 1,993 million personalised advertising texts were sent in Belgium. Every household received 430 addressed advertising mailings, or 191 addressed mailings per resident. No information on unaddressed advertising mailings is available.

According to market research, 93 % of Belgian consumers think it is important that unaddressed mailings are produced on environmentally-friendly paper.
