Meaning “Land of the Free”, Liberia is the oldest republic in Africa but the West African country is still struggling after a ruinous civil war in the 1990s and a UN ban on diamond exports (which was lifted in 2007). The infrastructure of the country is the real problem and this means that the economy is underdeveloped and the country poor. That said, with an elected president and vast amounts of foreign aid, exports in iron, diamonds, timber, rubber, coca and coffee have started to help earnings to give the country a push for stability. More than 3,000 miles away from the UK, it isn’t awash with tourists but slow economical growth means that parcel delivery to Liberia for trade is on the rise.
The coastal city of Monrovia is the capital of the country and houses nearly a third of its 4 million inhabitants. This means that it is generally the main destination for a parcel courier to Liberia but other areas like Gbarnga, Kakata, Bensonville, Harper, Voinjama, Buchanan, Zwedru, New Tekepa and Greenville are some of the larger towns in the country. Postcodes are used for delivery services in Liberia and are created with a 4-digit system: Monrovia, for example, is 1000. There is a railway in the country but this is mainly used to transport things from the mines. The majority of transport links come in the form of highways but the yearly heavy rains mean these aren’t in great condition and less than 10% of the entire network continues to be unpaved. Ports and harbours are also used while there are more than 60 airports in use throughout the country.
