Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Greenland

As one of the most rugged and unspoilt places on earth, Greenland offers those who venture to its icy, cold surface, unrivaled experiences filled with magnificent landscapes, dramatic fjords, beautiful wildlife and quaint villages. Greenland is the world’s largest island, the third largest country in North America and home to the world’s largest national park. The Greenland Ice Sheet, which covers approximately 80% of land, is one of only two ice sheets in the world. Despite the rough geography and harsh climate, it is still relatively easy to send a parcel to Greenland. Additionally, its population of 57,733 make it the least densely populated country in the world. While an autonomous country of Denmark, Greenland was granted self-government in 1979. Denmark still exercises control over several policies including foreign affairs and security. The country’s economy is heavily dependent on the exports of shrimp and fish. While income from resource exploration and extraction contributes, the country also receives a substantial subsidy from Denmark.
