Send a Parcel to Lyon, France

Located in the east central Rhone Alpes region of France, it sits between Paris and Marseille, and is only 100 miles from Geneva. It is the largest city outside of Paris with nearly 490,000 residents in the city with suburbs and satellite towns taking the Lyon conurbation to around 1.5 million, and 2.1 million including the metropolitan area.

It’s another French city that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is steeped in history and architecture. It is known for its silk weaving and for being the gastronomic capital of France. It’s culturally very significant as the first cinematographe (Cinema camera) was developed here, along with the Worlds first funicular railway, and the city holds a renowned light festival the "Fete des Lumieres", which occurs on the 8th December each year for four days. It was of historic significance in World War II as whilst it was a centre of German occupation it was also a stronghold of resistance.

It is also the French home of trompe l’oeil examples of which can be seen on walls throughout the city.

Olympique Lyonnais brings sport to the town and this soccer team has regularly taken part in European Champions League Football, Lyon also has strong rugby league and union teams.

Business comes to the city in the form of banking, pharmaceutical, biotech and chemical companies. It is ranked as the 2nd best place to live in France.

When it comes to gastronomy then for many centuries the city has attracted the finest chefs in France, and this has been aided by the nearby wine regions of Beaujolais and Cotes do Rhone.

Overall it adds up to a cosmopolitan city with a lot to offer. Good transport links ensure that any parcels shipped to or from the region should have a trouble free journey. Just remember to always ensure that any parcels sent across Europe should be adequately packed, including when shipping to France.

I’ve used this service twice abd each…

I’ve used this service twice abd each time the website tells me how long I’ve got for a collection on the day I’ve placed the order. I’ve placed the order and immediately been told it’s too late for a collection! This means my collection has to be rescheduled or I take it to a local drop off point. I’d rather they were honest when placing the order. Apart from that Theresa in the office is most helpful, the pricing is very competitive and things have been delivered internationally successfully.

Best service ever

Best service ever. Been sending parcels to my son in USA for 22 years with various other companies. Sometimes problematic with delays and losses. No issues , no delays,no excuses. Just great service. What they say is what you get. Well done !!

No five star as there was some delay

No five star as there was some delay. Driver said he did not need 3 +1 copies of paperwork but I insisted he took them. Service ok but in the past has been excellent ( different carriers ?)

WPS has great prices and good service…

WPS has great prices and good service and we use them whenever we have products going to Norway or France. One small fly in the ointment is that when they use UPS the UPS shipping labels do not fit on a standard 6 x 4" label printer as they have a large block of text on the page as well as the label. Otherwise, we have found the service over a number of years to be first class.
