Security concerns when shipping to Ivory Coast
Technically since May of 2011 and the election of their President Ouattara, the Ivory Coast is supposed to be congealed into one country, no longer divided along political terms. In reality this means that things have improved there, but are not exactly stable. There are still demonstrations that occur and targeted attacks aimed at law enforcement officials and the police force. These types of violent outbursts are definitely happening less and less frequently, but they do still occur so are worth noting as they have the potential to delay your shipments by shutting down roads and other vital infrastructure components vital to making deliveries happen on time and safely.
