I understand Shapeways needs UPS for international shipping but i believe UPS is a bad choice for a large part of Europe.

Using UPS to ship packages to me personally is pretty much useless. The box needs to be signed for and doesn't fit through the letterbox and the UPS delivery times are the same a the hours i'm expected to be at work. There is no way UPS can hand me this package and UPS doesn't seem to have a plan when they cannot hand over the package. It took me hours and trips to two different depots before i actually got my stuff.

PostNL (and by extension BPost, USPS.. and all the other old fashioned mail carriers) can be picked up every day between 8:00 and 20:00 at the supermarket just around the corner. I can manage and track parcels to me via their website.

I'll pay extra to not have to use UPS / Fedex / DHL
