The North East African country of Eritrea is located on the Red Sea coast and is home to 5.6 million people and shares a border with Ethiopia having gained independence in 1993. Periods of conflict and severe drought have heavily impacted on the agricultural economy, which in turn has led to this nation remains one of the poorest in Africa.

Located in the Horn of Africa, Eritrea also shares borders with Djibouti and Sudan as well as aforementioned Ethiopia. In recent times it has witnessed strong economic growth following the end of the Eritrean-Ethiopian War due to its extensive mineral resources, especially copper and gold as well as granite and marble.
This kind of industry drives some import traffic from other nations such as the UK, so we do see some goods sent to locations across the country. Customers who use our simple quote engine are often looking for the same sort of things you would expect from a courier, a good price and a good service time.

Heavy box collected with fragile item from Lowestoft and delivered in Scotland (near Aberdeen) a few days later. I had written This side up on the box, but this was not always obeyed, as there was slight damage to the item. However the price was very good for delivery and the customer had a spare part, so was not unhappy.
DPD did what they said they would and the tracking process confirmed that.
Everything worked as should. Great service!
Fast and easy to use
