Living in Benin
Situated in West Africa, Benin is bordered by four nations; Togo, Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Niger. With the population densely populating the southern coastline of the North Atlantic, the remaining territory can be divided into four distinct areas. With the low lying coastal plain dominated by marshy land, the forest-savanna reigns over the southern areas of Benin, followed by rocky hills finally extending into the Atacora mountain range in the north of the country. The range of terrain allows for a range of economic opportunities for Benin, but most predominant is cotton production, accounting for around 80% of exports and approximately 40% of GDP. This has contributed to its economic growth; however, population growth has prevented the effects of this economic gain. The population has grown five-fold between 1950 and 2016 and there is a vast range of ethnic groups, including 42 African groups, as well as Indian and Lebanese communities involved with trade. There is also a European diaspora, though this mainly consists of nationals sent to help with aid and are by far the minority. Despite this, the national language is French, yet Beninese traditions have been held onto. Alongside traditional dress, Beninese literature has a strong oral presence despite the French language, but many cross-cultural scenes have developed, including French cabaret and American rock.

What are the Methods for Sending Furniture to Benin?
Shipping-furniture to Benin via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Benin in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Shipping-furniture via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Benin Shipping-furniture is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Benin but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Benin service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Shipping-furniture to Benin via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Benin. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.

For Shipping-furniture to Benin, sea freight is one of the most favoured transport methods due to its cost-effectiveness and ease for our clients. Shipping-furniture to Benin via sea freight can sometimes be a slow process, therefore we advise that you allow ample time for your delivery.
