Kuwait means “fortress built near water” and although the country is mainly concrete and desert terrain, sending a parcel to Kuwait from the UK has never been easier. With an estimated 10% of the world’s total oil reserves, trade is booming in Kuwait and therefore increases the need for fast and secure delivery services.
