The stable African country of Gabon is found on the west coast of the central continent region and is bordered by Cameroon, Congo and Equatorial Guinea. Since gaining independence from France in 1960, the relative prosperity of the country thanks to oil reserves has meant a contented population in the main. Currently, the economy grows at around 5% a year, extreme poverty is rare and it enjoys a high per capita income for the region. Other exports include timber and uranium, but with rainforests filled with wildlife like gorillas and elephants, and national parks accounting for around one tenth of the land area, eco-tourism is the current push from the country. With peace and a prosperous economy, the demand for parcel couriers to Gabon continues to rise for both trade and tourism.
Found more than 3,600 miles from the UK, it takes almost 10 hours – including a stop – to fly there but cheap postage to Gabon is frequently available. The coastal city of Libreville is the capital and a major port in the region, home to around half of the entire population. This makes it the major destination for delivery services in Gabon but other cities like Port-Gentil, Franceville, Oyem, Moanda, Mouila and Lambaréné are also popular. Postcodes aren’t used in the country but the majority of cities are well connected. There is a trans-Gabon railway from the capital to Franceville, the road network links all cities, although only around 10% is paved, the seaports are busy and Gabon’s more than 55 airports mean that imports and packages can easily enter the country.
