Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Kiribati
Previously known as the Gilbert Islands, Kiribati has 33 atolls and straddles the Equator as it stretches 4,000km in width and 2,000km in length. This remote country in the central Pacific Ocean covers only 310 square miles in land area, has been independent from the UK since 1979, and is one of the poorest countries in the world. Isolation from the rest of the world, weak infrastructure and a lack of skilled workers means that it relies on financial aid from around the world, and that accounts for almost a quarter of the income. Currently, its main industries are coconuts, including copra, and fishing but tourism is growing slightly as people go to see the largest marine reserve in the South Pacific, the gorgeous lagoons and simple village life. Being 8,509 miles from the UK, it’s not the easiest place to reach but it is still possible to get cheap parcel delivery to Kiribati.

Transport and Courier Routes in Kiribati
The atoll of Tarawa is the capital of Kiribati and home to around half of the more than 103,000 population. This means that most items are delivered here but other notable locations include Betio Village, Bikenibeu Village, Teaoraereke Village, Bairiki Village, Eita Village, Bonriki Village and Temaiku Village. Getting things into the country is fairly simple as there are more than 20 airports that can accommodate small airplanes and there are substantial ports and harbours for docking. On the atolls themselves, there is a road network that is mainly unpaved but allows delivery services in Kiribati to get to the various parts of the country. Postcodes aren’t used.
