Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Micronesia
Scattered across the western Pacific and made up of 600 islands, which are grouped into the four states of Chuuk (Truk), Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, the Federated States of Micronesia take up very little land mass and, whilst independent since 1986, are defended by the US. The states are supremely different in terms of traditions, cultures and identities, and only really share a history of colonisation with each other. It was in 2003 that US President George W Bush agreed a 20-year compact with the islands, as well as the Marshall Islands, for around $3.5 billion and Micronesia is dependent on this income as well as other aid from Japan and the world. With geographical isolation and an undeveloped infrastructure, growth on these islands is difficult but you can find a cheap courier to Micronesia with My Parcel Delivery, and the economy is based on agriculture and fishing, with a small amount of phosphate being on the only mineral deposits the country can realistically use for trade.

Transport and Courier Routes in Micronesia
With such a mix of experiences across the four states and hundreds of islands, visiting Micronesia is a rewarding experience but being more than 8,000 miles from the UK it is difficult to get there. The capital of the country is Palikir on the island of Pohnpei, and accounts for around 10% of the 105,000 population. Also on this island, is the large settlement of Kolonia, and other notable places for parcel delivery to Micronesia are Weno Town, Tofol, Colonia and Nema. When it comes to sending a parcel to Micronesia, you need to remember that they use the US postal system. The state code is FM and the codes range from 96941 to 96944. On the islands, some still live without running water and electricity and the transport infrastructure isn’t much better. Each state has an International Airport and there are a number of ports for incoming goods. Thanks to the small land area, there isn’t much need for roads but even then there aren’t many more than 200 paved miles across the islands.
