MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
The British overseas territory of the Falkland Islands is an isolated spot in the Atlantic Ocean that has long been part of a political battle with Argentina over ownership. It is a sparsely populated area with around 3,000 people living there, and the economy is based on agriculture, fishing and tourism. Of its entire exports, the UK tends to take around 10% with imports to the country being mainly from the UK itself. This means that there is demand for cheap parcel delivery to the Falkland Islands. Travelling to the country isn’t the simplest task and can take up to three stops to complete the near 8,000 miles to the Falklands, off the tip of South America.
With only a small number of people living there, the Falkland Islands don’t have large cities and the capital of Stanley houses most inhabitants. Other destinations for delivery services in the Falkland Islands do include Goose Green Settlement and Port Howard. The Islands got their own postcode in 2003, which is FIQQ 1ZZ. This postcode was introduced after complaints that mail bound for the Falkirk Islands was going to Falkirk in Scotland or the Faroe Islands instead! Thanks to extensive work on the road network since the turn of the century, it is easy to get from the capital to other settlements. There are also good sea and air links to make parcel delivery to Falkland Islands as quick as possible.
