The Republic of Senegal is potentially the most westerly nation on African mainland and shares borders with Mauritania, Mali, Guinea, Guniea-Bissau and surrounds the small nation of The Gambia. In terms of eCommerce, a big driver in mail and parcel delivery, Senegal is number one in Africa. Its iGDP (internet gross domestic product) is at 3.3% followed by Kenya's 2.9% with Morocco at 2.3% and South Africa 1.4 %. Although Africa trails behind the world in iGDP rates with Sweden rated as high as 6.3% there is set to be substantial growth with Senegal at the forefront.

When it comes to international shipping to Senegal one of the best options would be our very own Parcel Monkey Air Express. This is best of both worlds as it is an express transit time for an economy price. Customers often question who handles the goods on this service and the answer is premium couriers. Parcelforce will come and collect the parcel if it isn't too large and take to a Freight Forwarder at Heathrow. From here it is shipped out of the UK and then the final delivery is made by DHL. You can book this Air Express service from around £33, and the goods will arrive in 3-4 days.
We do also offer DHL Air Express to Senegal and that is our fastest transit time there, delivery is made in fact in just 2-3 days and this is available to book from £64.57 and is handled only by DHL themselves, door to door.
When importing goods into non-EU countries you should be aware of and comply with the local customs regime of the destination country. Those rules are governed by Douanes Senegalaises.

Senegal is one of the more developed nations in Africa, home to a population of over 15 million and as more and more of us embrace the internet, it is set to become a big player in terms of eCommerce. Not all packages are to do with internet retail, and many of our customers are shipping to friends or family, as well as for business purposes with boxes containing spare parts or documents often booked in online by our customers. Dakar in particular is a frequently shipped to the location, the buzzing cosmopolitan city is a thriving tourist hive as well as home to large businesses.
Just like Mali, Senegal is a former French colony, but unlike Mali, it doesn't have an abundance of natural resources and has an agricultural sector highly dependent on rainfall. This has meant that Senegal has largely focused on the exportation of fish, nuts and phosphates - as well as the attraction of tourists into the country.
The 1970's and 1980's saw significant economic issues and contracting standards of living. However, with the involvement of the IMF and France in the 1990's the economy has largely resolved many of the structural issues and has grown significantly over the past decade - despite the global economic contraction.

My Parcel was not collected when arranged and I had to get in touch with them to rearrange it. This in itsself is not easy as there does not seem to be a way to speak to anyone there other than email or live chat if available.
My parcel to Senegal was picked up and delivered on time. Easy tracking.
It was very easy to use and worked quickly and efficiently. Will definitely use you again. Any chance of cheaper prices?
I was very satisfied with all aspects of the service. It was carried out to a very satisfactory standard.

Very simple registration and easy posting
