Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to Montserrat
This small British overseas territory in the British West Indies is known as the Emerald Isle for its similarity to Ireland and is still recovering from the eruption of Soufrière Hills Volcano back in 1995. Due to this, parts of the area are uninhabitable with lava flows and ash fall continuing to cause problems. Previously, Montserrat was reliant on tourism but with the halt of economic activity and the destruction of Plymouth – the island’s capital – this activity has largely stopped. The country now relies on the EU and Britain for aid, to help rebuild. You can still send a parcel to Montserrat and while the de jure capital of Plymouth is destroyed, a future capital of Little Bay is under construction with the de facto capital currently being the largest town of Brades. The economy is based on agriculture but the EU sent more than $55 million in 2013 and small economic growth has returned.

Transport and Courier Routes in Montserrat
With a population of just 5,000, the largest place is easily Brades but other notable areas include Cork Hill, Salem, Saint John’s Village and Gerald’s. The country uses a postcode system that came into effect in April 2014 and is a three-letter code (MSR) followed by four digits. The postcode to use for sending an item to Brades would be MSR1110. Delivery services in Montserrat use the only airport of Gerald’s Airport to bring goods into the country, and there are anchorages and landings at both Little Bay and Carr’s Bay. On land, you can get around on the couple of hundred miles of highways which are usable but need some work.
