MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
A landlocked Eastern European country, Armenia is bordered by Turkey, Georgia, Iran and Azerbaijan and has a rich history that includes rule from a number of civilisations. Due to strained relations with both Azerbaijan and Turkey, the country is slightly isolated and this has had a huge effect on the economy. The small but densely populated nation has exports of around $1.6 billion from their goods like pig iron, copper and diamonds and imports some $4.5 billion into the country. Flight times from London to the Armenian capital city of Yerevan are just over 7 hours and while the country had a difficult 20th century, tourism continues to grow to this modernising place whether you hit the big cities or rural towns. Thanks to the steady development of the country, courier costs to Armenia remain relatively low.
More than a million people live in the capital of Yerevan, and the majority of delivery services in Armenia are destined for the city. Other popular areas include Gyumri, Vanadzor, Vagharshapat, Abovyan, Kapan and Hrazdan. Whilst the majority of transport links are underdeveloped, all roads are paved and there are airports and railways that help to ensure efficient connections between Armenia with the rest of the world. This makes it easier to use a parcel courier to Armenia, and if you do send something to the country then remember that the postcodes use a 4-digit system, for example Yerevan is 0010.
