Sandwiched between Algeria to its west, Libya to its east, and the Mediterranean Sea as its northern coastline, Tunisia is the northernmost country in the African continent.
Being declared bankrupt in 1869, it became a French protectorate in 1881, until 1956 when it became independent, but still holding close relations with France (and Italy) through economic cooperation over many years.
Our entry into Tunisia has come about following an approach by our [now] Parisian partner who was seeking a UK collaboration for its services to Morocco and Tunisia. Their association with North African company TCL enables us to provide services to Tunisia with average transit times of 7-8 days door UK to depot Tunisia.
