Importing Supercars into the UK from Dubai and Saudi Arabia

Mercator has over twenty years experience in the freight forwarding business and has imported various supercars and luxury cars into the UK from all over the Middle East including Dubai, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Let Mercator guide you through the process of importing your supercar into the UK with a comprehensive, personal service.  Our experienced team of freight forwarders can advise on all matters including transit methods (i.e. sea freight or air freight), transit times, options to securely fasten the car in its shipping container, import VAT and duty, and loading options.

We understand that the safety of your vehicle is paramount, and so will go to lengths to ensure that the car is secured safely in its shipping container, or on the airplane.  Fastening will only be undertaken in full knowledge that no marks will be made to the car.  Options such as using webbing and padded straps can be discussed.

Mercator can organise everything for your shipment of your supercar from its destination in the Middle East.  We can arrange the sea or air freight, the collection of the car when it arrives into the UK for delivery anywhere across the country, the import VAT and duty payable upon arrival in the UK, and all measures to ensure a safe transit.

Ferrari UK to Australia - Ocean Freight Forwarder

The Ferrari above is a car that we shipped for a customer. As you can see, it has been containerised in order to minimise the risk of damage in transit and has been secured in the container to ensure that it does not move around during transit. We have contacts at most ports who can arrange the secure loading of your car, do a full inspection before the vehicle is loaded and ensure the car is securely fastened into the container for transit.

If you’re looking to import a supercar from Dubai, Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, contact us today to see how we can help – Tel. 02392 756 575. Email: sales@mercatorcargo.co.uk.

New Car Terminal for Grimsby, United Kingdom

Car trade through the UK port of Grimsby is set to surge as the Secretary of State for Transport approved a proposal to develop two roll on roll off (ro-ro) riverside terminals for the transportation of cars.

The two new terminals will accommodate vessels carrying over 2000 vehicles and the port will see a significant increase in its cargo capacity. The development is the largest project in Grimsby’s recent history.

The news comes after recent consent was granted to the Port of Southampton to upgrade berths to be able to accommodate ultra large container ships calling at the UK in the next few years. These developments mean these two UK ports will continue to serve the UKs increasing demand for imports and exports in years to come.

For more information on the developments and the potential the Port of Grimsby will start to offer importers and exporters over the coming years please contact Mercator Cargo Systems today on 02392 75 65 75 to speak to an experience members of our freight forwarding team today.
