The landlocked east-central Asian country of Mongolia is a huge country of 604,000 square miles, the 19th largest in the world, but is sparsely populated with just 3 million inhabitants. It wasn’t until 1990 that a multiparty electoral system came into effect in the country and with huge amounts of mineral wealth, the small economy is becoming one of the fastest growing. With as much as 40% of the population living and working in a nomadic lifestyle, it may seem difficult for the semi-desert nation to quickly expand but foreign investors from all around the world have put capital into the country. Bilateral relations between Mongolia and the UK are used in a bid to aid growth and this has seen a rise in cheap couriers to Mongolia. It isn’t just trade though, because the tourism industry grows in an adventure destination that is a unique experience.
Mongolia’s capital of Ulaanbaatar houses around 45% of the population. When you send a parcel to Mongolia, it has to cross 4,286 miles of land – or air – from the UK to reach its destination. Outside of the capital, Erdenet, Darhan, Khovd, Olgii, Ulaangom, Hovd, Mörön, Bayanhongor and Arvayheer are other notable cities. Delivery services in Mongolia use a 5 digit system, with the first for region or zone, second for province or district and the final three are for the local delivery area. If you were sending a parcel to Ulaanbaatar, for example, you would use 15141. Whilst the country is huge, the railway network is extensive and connects the country with Russia and China, there are navigable waterways and airports and although most of the roads remain unpaved there is a network of more than 40,000 kilometres.
