Uganda is an East African nation that benefits from the richness of its natural resources - especially of the agricultural type. It shares borders with other countries abound with minerals and fertile land such as the Demoncratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania and Kenya and Rwanda but also the less naturally wealthy country of South Sudan.
The economy of Uganda reflects the nation's resources as 19% of Uganda's exports are various forms of coffee, 5.8% tobacco, and 2.9% green tea.
In terms of costs of sending parcels to Uganda they are very similar to other countries in Africa as a 1kg parcel would cost in the region of £30 via TrakPak and the parcel would arrive in 10-11 days using this cost effective international shipping. If you are shipping a heavy parcel to Uganda, say 10kg TrakPak will do this for just under £70.
TrakPak is a parcel post service which has global coverage, and is very popular with those customers who require the cheapest courier services.
For those customers who require and Express Shipping our own brand Parcel Monkey Air Express will get your goods delivered to Uganda in just 3 days. Not only this it is a door to door, fully tracked courier service and you can share all the tracking details with the recipient so they can follow the parcel in transit.
Quicker still, is the DHL Express service. This is handled only by DHL door to door and again comes with full tracking to delivery and arrives in major Ugandan cities like the capital Kampala in 2-4 days. A 10kg parcel would cost in the region of £164 on this service, whilst our own Air Express service is more than half the price, so if you can accept a day longer in terms of transit time, the Parcel Monkey service is great value for money.
If you would like to find the current rules and regulations about sending items into Uganda via Parcel Post visit the Uganda Revenue Authority and navigate to the Customs Tax Guides page. They state that most imported items are taxable except computers, textbooks, medical equipment, medicine and mosquito nets.
Amongst the usual items such as pornography and counterfeit money, items such as matches made with white phosphorous, items with coats of arms with the aim of deceiving, various distilled beverages, etc.
Please also be sure to provide a local contact number so that the courier can make contact with the recipient and check our Customs Guidance.
Good value, good price, efficient service
Thank you - the parcels were collected on the date stated and arrived in Uganda very promptly.
Parcel monkey were excellent, they picked up my parcel when they said they would and also delivered it pretty fast and on time. This was an international parcel delivery so I was very impressed (delivered to Uganda within 3 days). More importantly I saved a lot compared to other providers such as Royal Mail and DHL, who were quoting twice as much for the same job.
A great service to use for sending presents etc back home to Uganda with the only problem encountered at Kampala where unscrupulous members of a company charged with delivering my parcels wanting bribes or unexpectedly add taxes to a particular delivery for no particular reason. Everything works out really smoothly in England but its just at the other end in Uganda problems are encountered!!
