MPD - safe, affordable & reliable
An oil-rich African country, secular fighting has stopped Libya from being a stable nation politically even since the ousting of Colonel Gaddafi, which the UK was involved with, in 2011. This means that despite the fact the country has a rich ancient history – at the crossroads of civilisations – tourism to the area is practically non-existent. Economically, Libya is well-placed to enjoy rapid growth thanks to the amount of oil reserves available. Trade is the most popular reason for needing a parcel courier to Libya and the UK is one of the main export partners. We import as much as $2 billion worth of oil from the country every year – with total exports from the country topping $50 billion and imports at around $30 billion.
The capital of Tripoli is Libya’s largest city and is home to around 1.15 million people. Alternative destinations include Benghazi, Misratah, Tarhuna, Al Khums, Az Zawiyah, Zawiya, Ajbadiya, Sabha and Sirte. Whilst there are no railways in Libya, there are numerous ports on the Mediterranean, airports with paved runways and motorways to link the country effectively for delivery services in Libya. Postcodes are not used in the country, and this is the case for most of the countries in Africa.
