Parcel Delivery and Courier Services to New Caledonia

The tropical archipelago of New Caledonia is a true paradise. The utopian islands offer seclusion, pristine beaches and unique wildlife with modern amenities and a touch of French charm. The French overseas territory is 620 miles away from any other land and is home to the world’s largest lagoon and the second largest coral reef.  New Caledonia received its name when a British explorer who first discovered the island in 1774 likened it to Scotland. The French then took possession in 1853. Now, the territory is enjoying an increase in government responsibility and may one day gain complete independence. New Caledonia is home to about 25% of the world’s known nickel reserves. An increase in nickel prices and newly developed plants are expected to give way to greater economic growth over the next few decades. New Caledonia’s economy also depends on tourism and financial aid from France.  Additionally, food accounts for about 20% of all imports. However, with constant travel to the islands and close ties to Europe, it is fast and easy to send a parcel to New Caledonia.
