Is Romanian Post reliable for international deliveries?

Posta Romana arranges express transport and delivery to 105 countries through a collaboration with EMS, a courier service operating globally. It is not uncommon for national postal services to hand over to EMS for last-mile delivery due to the extensive area they cover, as well as the competitive rates and fast transit times they offer by using only air transport.

Romanian Post provides end-to-end tracking for almost all international parcels sent through their network. This increases customer satisfaction and trust in their services.

Thus, it is fair to consider Posta Romana a reliable solution for international deliveries. On the other hand, with Eurosender Express Service, you can ship to over 220 countries and territories around the world, with tracking included and transit times of just 24-72h!
