The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, or North Korea as its more commonly known in the West is one of the most fascinating countries we offer parcel delivery to, purely because of their self-imposed isolation from the west of the world. Of course this situation arose out of the Second World War where the northern half was controlled by the Soviet Union and the southern by the United States.
The country has a highly centralised command economy where the central government establishes what is to be purchased and sold at what price. Interestingly North Korea has significant deposits of minerals and fossil fuels which it could exploit on the international market, but has chosen to restrict access, although international trade does exist, with 70 per cent being with China.
As international trade with North Korea from the UK is limited, they have little need for a website detailing customs restrictions. We can point you to the North Korea profile on the Foreign & Commonwealth Office website and the UK in DPRK website and telephone number (0) 2 382 7980.
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
