With strong roots in Switzerland, Asendia is the knowledgeable partner you need when wishing to enter Switzerland's postal network successfully.

Tips for mailing to Switzerland

Tips for mailing to Switzerland

When sending mail to Switzerland there are many things you need to consider if you’re to successfully reach your chosen demographic with a direct mail campaign or ensure your customers receive their orders efficiently.

The first thing you need to consider is are you speaking the same language as your intended recipients? This is something the Swiss are very sensitive about and with four official languages for the country, you want to get it right. The last thing you want to do is address the French-speaking part of Switzerland with a German salutation or material. 

There's much more too, from sizes and points of interest to the Swiss market to possible legal ramifications and guidelines from the Swiss Direct Marketing Association. Asendia has put together a short, helpful, guide to cover all of you need to be aware of when mailing into Switzerland.
