MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
Magnificent herds of wildlife, stunning desert oases and the mesmerising and massive Lake Chad. The lake, from which the country receives its name, is the largest wetland in Chad and the second largest in Africa. While an enticing attraction for many travellers, it is the most significant body of water in the Sahel and serves as an important livelihood for the people of Chad. The landlocked country in Central Africa is comprised of several different geographic zones including the desert, the arid Sahelian belt and the fertile Sudanian Savannah. France conquered the country in 1920. After gaining independence in 1960, Chad underwent nearly three decades of civil warfare, which resulted in corruption, an unstable economy and poverty. Currently, Chad’s economy relies on imported goods and aid from neighbouring countries. Oil accounts for about 60% of export revenues. Meanwhile, cotton, livestock, cattle and gum arabic make up a significant portion of the country’s non-oil exports. The country’s dependence on foreign aid has also given way to improved transportation infrastructure and faster parcel delivery to Chad.
The central African country is the fifth largest in Africa. It is bordered by Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, Nigeria and Niger. Chad’s population is approximately 11,631,456 and consists of over 200 different ethnic and linguistic groups. The capital city of N'Djamena is the largest city with a rapidly increasing population. However, mud houses and traditional ways of life make the metropolis feel more like a village than a cosmopolitan city. The country’s transportation infrastructure is widely underdeveloped and poorly-maintained. And, while the network of roadways has increased significantly since the civil war, many of the roads become impassable during the rainy season. There are railways that connect the country to Libya and Sudan. Chad’s international airport is located in the capital. It provides regular and direct flights to Paris and helps improve the speed of parcel courier to Chad. The country does not utilise a postal code system.
Chad does not elicit warm, glamorous feelings of archetypal African safaris, but instead, the central African country provides spectacular sub-Saharan scenery, a rugged wildlife and a rustic experience void of glitzy tourist attractions and luxury accommodations. Travel to this developing country requires a sense of adventure. However, the land which has been inhabited since the 7th millennium BC, continues to provide an immense amount of wealth and sustenance to its people. European influence and the country’s dependence on trade have created a competitive market for courier services to Chad. My Parcel delivery provides fast, reliable and cheap courier services to Chad.
