Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Faroe Islands

Spanning just 540 square miles, and with a population of 48,700, the archipelago of the Faroe Islands is a small, self-governing part of Denmark. Found in the North Atlantic, these 18 islands have a good relationship with the UK and have a strong economy. With offshore gas and oil reserves plentiful, and the rugged coastline attracting visitors, there has long been talk of full independence. Whilst unemployment is very low, this is because many skilled students move to Denmark following graduation and the country relies almost solely on its fishing industry. The UK, sitting 778 miles away, currently amounts for more than 20% of the country’s entire exports and demand to find the cheapest courier to the Faroe Islands is slowly increasing.

The capital of Tórshavn is a southern city on Streymoy and has a population of around 20,000. This is the main destination for delivery services in the Faroe Islands although other potential destinations include Klaksvik, Hoyvik, Argir and Vágur. Postcodes are used for the country with 3-digits following the prefix of FO. So, for example, if you were sending to Tórshavn you would use FO 100 and Klaksvik is FO 700. Due to being an archipelago, ferries and helicopters are frequently used for commerce and transport. It has one airport in Vagur but does have a well connected road network.
