The Republic of Mali is one of the largest landlocked countries in western Africa by landmass and shares borders with a vast number of countries, with similar international courier prices including, Algeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Senegal and Mauritania.
As one of the poorest countries in the world the level of international trade Mali has with the UK is minimal, not least because, as a former French colony, they are more inclined to trade with their historic allies than British companies. Furthermore, Mali is part of the "French Zone" meaning that it trades in the CFA Franc and is connected to the French Central Bank. If you live in France and want to ship to Mali, then why not get a quote from Parcel Monkey France - parcelmonkey.fr where you can save on shipping costs.
Here are some examples of prices to send a parcel to Mali. We have many options, so for a personalised quote please enter the weight of your item into the quote box below.
Much of the country's economy is based on agriculture, especially cotton, but also vegetables, rice, tobacco and corn. As much as eighty percent of the national workforce is employed in this sector and further impacts on our low level of inter-nation trade.
Despite the limited transport and infrastructure in the country, we are still able to deliver to Mali from the UK at very reasonable prices.
Try our discounted DHL Air Express rate, this will ensure your parcel arrives in 2-3 days fully tracked. If shipping to major cities like Bamako, the parcel will arrive more quickly as opposed to shipping to a rural address.
We also offer our own brand Parcel Monkey Air Express, which takes just a day extra than DHL for almost half the price. Don't worry there is no corners cut, it is fully tracked and a premium courier, delivered in the country by DHL. We save on the cost by arranging for Parcelforce to collect from your home or work address in the UK, then a Freight Forwarder ships the parcel to Mail, before DHL complete the job. This is available from less than £50.
It is essential that you familiarise yourself with the customs regime of Mali and particularly the import prohibitions which can be found here and includes, but not exclusively, foods containing potassium bromate or beef and alcoholic beverages in plastic bags.
