The Kingdom of Bhutan is a small landlocked nation situated in the beautiful Himalayas and shares a border with China to the north and India to the south and has been rated as the happiest nation in Asia. Understandably, with a population of just 750,000 we do not see a regular flow of parcels to the Kingdom, although the parcel delivery infrastructure is perhaps more advanced than some other nations in the region.

In terms of economy, the most important industry to the country is that of electricity production through hydroelectric power. Also of importance are the mining and agricultural sectors, with agriculture and animal husbandry being of historic importance.
When it comes to sending a parcel there from the UK, we offer a variety of service from the Express DHL service which arrives as quickly as 4-5 days to the slower Asendia offering which is estimated by them to take 8-9 days.
A good recommendation is to use our own Air Express product, which takes just a day longer than DHL, and is still fully tracked but is actually the cheapest service we offer to Bhutan. You can arrange for the parcel to be collected from you, and delivered in just a few days from around only £32.

Amazingly cheap. Thats the first thing. Thats great! However the two-day delivery time was not honoured at all. I recently sent four packages. One arrived in two days. Two took three days and one took four days. I did not mark the packages fragile (I assumed that a 30kg package wasnt likely to get thrown very far) but it was clear they got tossed about a fair bit. Although quite tightly packed, the contents had moved around a lot. Some CDs and cases were cracked or broken and a small coffee table leg got a bit broken too. Ive used them before, all in all Ive sent six packages and theyve all arrived eventually with nothing missing. Id highly recommend for non-time-critical deliveries of items unlikely to break (great for gradually moving a record collection from UK to Germany!). Extremely cheap!
This was easy to use with lots of choice on the courier type of service needed and speed of delivery. I requested a signature as needed proof of delivery and this has been provided on both occasions I have used the service. Happy to recommend.
They were very fast and careful with my parcel. I believe parcel monkey has the cheapest prices for larger parcel in the UK. I only use parcel force through them, due to being disabled and my printer plays me up every so often. I just wrote the name on it and I know they have the label to stick over it. And 24 hours door to door is the fastest service as well. Wish they did smaller parcels too. I would use them then for all my parcels.
Excellent as always, thank you.
