There's never been more options for parcel delivery to Kuwait than now. Get a quote here!
Throughout the 1900s, and even more so during the 21st century, Kuwait has undergone massive modernisation and seen tremendous economic growth. This has much to do with the fact that the country holds the 6th highest oil reserves in the world, located in Western Asia. This claim makes it an impressive nation, seeing as it is only the 157th largest country in the world and has a population of around 4 and a half million people, with bordering countries such as Iraq and Saudi Arabia. A booming economy and a relatively small population mean that Kuwait is the 4th richest per capita nation in the world.
Other notable statistics include that there are more female workers in the country than there are men. This is incredibly liberating when you consider which region of the world Kuwait lies in. Perhaps even more surprising is that more than two-thirds of the population aren’t even from Kuwait, but are instead expatriates. In fact, there are almost 9,000 British expats currently living in Kuwait who can enjoy the ample opportunities that exist there. This large number of British citizens calling Kuwait home, coupled with ever increasing trade between the two nations, makes domestic and commercial parcel delivery to Kuwait from UK ever more likely. It is an industry that is continuing to grow year on year.
