Exporting to Israel

Freight forwarder Mercator handles export shipping to Israel on a regular basis.  We can handle cargo from all industries and offer multi modal transportation including air and sea freight to Israel.

Founded in 1991, over the years we have assisted the export of various goods to Israel including commercial furniture, electronics, coffee and machine parts.  Thanks to our founding membership of the global freight forwarding network MarcoPoloLine (MPL) we have a partner agent based in Israel.  When exporting to Israel, our agent based in Ashdod will advise on documentation required, handle customs clearance (if required) and even deliver to your customer to door.  We have been working with our Israel partner for over 10 years, so you rely on your cargo being in safe and reliable hands every step of the shipping process.

Our export services to Israel cover air and sea freight.  Air freight to Israel generally departs from Heathrow and arrives in Tel Aviv in Israel.  Air freight is more expensive than sea freight, however, it can be a preferred option if you are in a hurry or if the cargo is particularly small or valuable.

Sea freight to Israel takes around two to two and a half weeks (16 days roughly).  Most schedules leave Felixstowe in the UK and call at Ashdod or Haifa in Israel.  When it comes to sea freight shipping to Israel, we handle all sizes of cargo including palletised goods, less than container loads (LCL), and full container loads (20’, 40’ and 40’HQ).

If you nominate Mercator to handle your shipping to Israel, we’ll arrange with you to get your goods from your door to the port in the UK and loaded for shipping (either into a full container, or palletised for shipping).  We’ll then arrange for your shipment to be booked onto the next available vessel / air departure to Israel.  Once your goods have arrived in Israel we can assist with getting your goods through customs clearance and onward delivery (if applicable, this will depend on what terms you have sold your goods on – see our page on INCOTERMS).

Mercator can also arrange for cross-trade shipping to Israel.  Cross-trade is the process of shipping between two places where the goods do not enter the country where the shipper is based (or registered).  For example, if you are based in the UK and you manufacture your goods in China but a customer in Israel has purchased some goods from you, it would not make sense to import the goods into the UK and then export them again to Israel.  Instead you would opt for a cross-trade option so that your goods could ship straight from China to Israel.  Due to our links within MPL we are able to arrange cross-trade shipments to Israel.
