At RapidParcel.com we believe the customer is king, and if you arrange a package delivery to Charleroi with us you'll find that every step of the process has been designed with your convenience and satisfaction in mind. That's why we don't just present a single service to our customers, but instead provide a multitude of choices to make when organising shipping to Charleroi, allowing you to tailor your delivery to suit your needs exactly.
Charleroi is a Belgian city situated in the Hainaut province, with the river Sambre running through the middle of it. It is positioned in the heart of Belgium's ‘Pays Noir' or ‘Black Country', an area named after the fact that it has historically been associated with heavy industry, such as steel work and coal mining. Although many of the factories and mines have now closed down, the landscape of Charleroi still bears the marks of this past activity. The economy of the city today is driven by glassworks and chemical and electrical engineering.

When you decide to arrange a delivery to Charleroi, you'll find that the RapidParcel.com courier comparison website guides you through the process by offering informed choices whilst always ensuring that you have sufficient information to make informed decisions.
