Freight Forwarding – Shipping to Dubai from the UK

When choosing a freight forwarder to handle your shipping to Dubai, you’ll need to make sure that they are able to offer all the services that you require.  A reputable freight forwarder will be able to offer:

  • All documentation required for shipping to Dubai;
  • Pick up in the UK and delivery to port/airport;
  • Sea or air freight to Dubai;
  • Clearance at customs in Dubai (usually in conjunction with a partner agent based in Dubai);
  • Delivery to door in Dubai.

When shipping to Dubai, it is important that the specific documents required are supplied upon arrival, to ensure the smooth transit of your goods.  As an experienced freight forwarder this is something that Mercator is able to offer; we can arrange to have commercial goods certified.

Another important service to look for in a freight forwarder when shipping to Dubai is that they have a reliable and tested partner agent locally.  Mercator Cargo has these contacts as a founding member of the global network of freight forwarders Marco Polo Line (MPL).  MPL consists of small to medium independent freight forwarders across the globe, all with the same ethos as Mercator: the customer is king.  All members of the network are vetted, so we know, and you know, that your cargo is in good hands.  When arranging your shipment to Dubai, we will ask our partner agent out there to customs clear and deliver your goods to the door in Dubai (if you require these services).

There are weekly sailings from Tilbury and Southampton, transit time via sea is approximately 20 days.  There are daily flights from the UK to Dubai airport, and these take a matter of hours.

Dubai Port, Jebel Ali, Sets New Freight Forwarding Ro-Ro Record

Dubai Jebel Ali Port has set a new record of handling vehicles, with over 500,000 (half a million) passing through the container port in 2012.

Dubai’s Jebel Ali Port is the world’s biggest manmade harbour and the Middle East’s largest container port, and a key player in the freight forwarding world.

Ro-Ro (or roll on, roll off) is the method by which freight forwarders and shippers get vehicles into containers to be shipped across the globe.

This huge increase in importing and exporting cargo, specifically cars and vehicles, in recent years highlights the growth in Dubai, UAE, and the Middle East overall.

It has recently been announced that the Dubai port will be expanding: increasing the current size of one of the container terminals, and constructing a new container terminal to deal with the increased demand of imports and exports to and from Dubai, UAE.

Contact Mercator if you require freight forwarding services either as imports of exports to or from Dubai, UAE – Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: sales@mercatorcargo.co.uk.
