The Libyan population is estimated to be around the 6.4 million mark, and the country enjoys great wealth due to its natural oil resources. The recent turbulent troubles of Libya are well documented, however, the amount of items being sent to the country from the UK is not insignificant. Many Libyans have left their homeland and settled across Europe so a large proportion of items are goods being sent back to friends or family who still live in the capital Tripoli where the population is over 1 million or elsewhere in places such as Benghazi.
Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Libya. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
Libya is Africa's fourth largest country and much of the population is to be found near the coast in the North of the country, as much of the land mass is an arid desert. The oil sector creates 80% of the countries gross domestic product, so many foreigners do reside in Libya for work so this may be one of the many reasons you have for shipping a parcel to Libya.
Much of Libya's infrastructure was destroyed in the revolution but it is still possible to send parcels around the country for a fair price. Parcel Monkey aim to bring low-cost shipping to those in the UK, and so therefore if you want to send something to Libya quickly for a great price we can help.
We offer three main courier services to Libya for you to book-
The prices you can expect to pay are a little more than many other African nations in part due to the recent troubles making it more difficult to get delivery sorted.
Currently, prices start at £102 for the DHL offering, whilst our Parcel Monkey Air Express services come in at around £70.
These prices are subject to change and are correct at the time of writing.
Many of our courier services deliver to the neighbouring countries of Egypt, Sudan, Chad, Niger, Algeria and Tunisia. Of course, it has also been in the media about many Libyans crossing into Europe, where we also have extensive delivery coverage.
We now also offer cross-border delivery services from almost any country via our new global shipping marketplace on parcelmonkey.com
We have found a customs website with some useful information about shipping to Libya, however, the official government site is currently down.
Parcel was sent via Parcelforce who made four attempts to deliver, very impressive. Will definitely use parcel monkey again.
I was very satisfied with all aspects of the service. It was carried out to a very satisfactory standard.
I used the 3 day ParcelForce service. I sent it on Monday and it arrived on Saturday.
