Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Marshall Islands
The island country in the Pacific Ocean near the equator, consists of two archipelagic chains that are made up of 29 coral atolls. It is considered part of the island group of Micronesia. Europeans first explored the islands in the 1520’s. They then underwent a succession of foreign leaders, including Spain, Russia, Germany, Britain, Japan and the United States. The country gained full sovereignty in 1986. Politically, the country is a presidential republic in free association with the U.S. Compensation claims provided by the U.S. as a result of nuclear testing that took place on the atolls between 1947 and 1962 in addition to lease payments for the use of Kwajalein Atoll as a military base, represent a large percentage of the island’s GDP. The U.S. also provides defence support, subsidies and access to government agencies. The services sector, fishing and agriculture also contribute to the country’s economy. Primary crops include coconuts and breadfruit. Meanwhile, handicrafts and tuna processing also contribute to the economy. Despite this, exports exceed imports. And, since the country is accustomed to importing goods and receiving foreign aid, communication is essential. As a result, there are fast and cheap courier services to the Marshall Islands.

Transport and Courier Routes in Marshall Islands
While widely well-known, the Marshall Islands remain one of the least visited places in the world. A tropical paradise of breathtaking scenery, stunning marine life, lush forest and diving opportunities aplenty await on the 29 atolls. The uninhabited atolls are known for their coconut and papaya plantations. Meanwhile, the country’s population of 72,191 is dispersed across the 1,156 islands and islets. Majuro is the capital and the most populous atoll. The islands of Bikini and Enewetak are former U.S. nuclear test sites. Kwajalein Atoll is a famous WWII battleground site and is currently used as a missile test range. Majuro is also home to the country’s international airport. Since there are so many islands and they are spread out, air and sea transportation is essential – especially for travel to the various islands and for delivery services in the Marshal Islands.
