MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
The resurgent country of Afghanistan has in recent years been torn apart by conflict and instability but continues to have a growing economy. Since the fall of the Taliban in 2001, there has been a lot of money invested through international assistance in a bid to make the country prosper. According to its government, the country has as much as $3 trillion in mineral deposits which, if used correctly, would make it one of the richest regions in the world. Despite this, the country that is 3,553 miles from the UK, is still widely underdeveloped and the infrastructure is in significant need of improvement.
The largest city in Afghanistan is the capital of Kabul and other sizeable destinations include Kandahar, Mazari Sharif, Herat, Jalalabad, Kunduz, Ghazni and Balkh. Postal codes have only been used in the country since 2011 and are crucial for when you send a parcel to Afghanistan. They are four digits long, the first two digits for the province and the second two for the city. For example, if you were sending an item to the Central Post Office in Kabul City it would be 1001 and Jalalabad North is 2602. Much of the transport system was built in the late 20th century and continues to develop through new national motorways which aids trade and connections. Being landlocked, there are no seaports but with 53 airports and a railway, it is well connected and this helps when finding a cheap courier to Afghanistan.
