Preparing your shipment to Liberia
Before you ship your goods to Liberia, make sure you have the correct documentation filled out and included with your package. Then you will want to make sure that all of your items are securely packaged within your box or envelope so that none can fall out during shipping or be banged about in there and have damaged inflicted upon them during their journey abroad.
Shipping destinations in Liberia
The main ports in Liberia are Monrovia (the main port) and Greenville to the South East of Monrovia. Both ports accept ocean cargo freight liners on a regular basis and process the goods through their Customs system there before being released. Any air mail shipments will be processed through Customs at the airport where they fly in before being sent out for delivery. Any major city in Liberia, like Monrovia or Buchanan, will receive delivery services for their parcels. People living in the outlying areas will typically be required to travel to a more densely populated area to retrieve their parcels. You recipient should be made aware of this beforehand so there are no surprises and be told that they will need proper identification in order to get their items in most cases.
Required documents when shipping to Liberia
You will need to have a Bill of Lading filled out and attached to your shipment when sending something to Liberia. You should also have a Certificate of Origin and the original invoice, if applicable, affixed to your package. These documents will be inspected and compared to your parcel when it passes through the Customs department. There may be other documentation required for your particular items in your shipment. Check with your shipping company for further details on these potential documents so you can try to avoid any delays in this entire process.
