Implement the following changes for shipments to the UK starting from the date the Brexit takes effect:
- Shipments to the UK currently require a Parcel EU (EPS) barcode type but will need to be shipped with the Parcel Non-EU (Globalpack) barcode type in the new situation. Check the specifications for the Parcel Non-EU (Globalpack) barcode type on this page:
- Change the productcode for shipments to the UK from an Parcel EU (EPS) roductcode to 4945 or 4947, a Non-EU (Globalpack) productcode. Product code 4947 is available from labeling version 2.0 or higher. Please check the link to see the difference between these codes: https://developer.postnl.nl/browse-apis/send-and-track/products/#destination-rest-of-world
- A Parcel Non-EU shipment requires more information than an Parcel EU shipment. You will need to add the mandatory fields from the customs type section and content type section in the labeling and/or confirming call. You can find a description of the required field formats on the following page:
- For Parcel Non-EU shipments the API will generate a label and a commercial invoice. The label will be in A5 format and the commercial invoice will be in A4 format.
