All freighters have to go to Belize City. That is where the port and customs is. From there they load the contents on a barge and send it out to the Island. A.C. does not have deep enough water to support freighters (thank goodness).
You can have mail sent to AC general delivery.

Thanks JZB, So is there also no container delivery to AC even if it must first be cleared in BC?

do you alos know if there is any kind of mail service from the states to AC where you have a stateside address and receive mail in AC? Hope you understand that...

Containers do have to go to Belize City first and then put on the smaller barges (Caribbean Depot or Mash) to AC. It is possible to clear it through the custom guys on AC.

About the mail, I'm assuming you're talking about a Mailboxes, etc. type place. We used to have one out here on the island a couple years ago. Everything was mailed to a Houston address and then shipped down weekly. We no longer have one but I believe there is still one in Belize City.
