Mercator can handle a variety of freight when it comes to export shipping to Lebanon. Our freight forwarder services cover all industries and even personal shipments for export to Lebanon. We have handled the shipping of various UK manufactured goods to Lebanon including engine parts, electronics, furniture and industrial chemicals.
Mercator has a freight forwarding partner based in Beirut, the capital city of Lebanon. This connection locally at destination is extremely useful when it comes to international trade and shipping. For example, when your shipment arrives in Beirut, our partner agent will be able to assist with local customs clearance and delivery to its destination. Mercator is a founding member of a worldwide freight forwarder network, and it is through this network that we have the relationship with our freight forwarder agent in Beirut. All freight forwarders in the network have been vetted and approved for membership, so are reliable and trustworthy. We find that many of our customers value the peace of mind that this connection gives when arranging an export shipment to Lebanon.
Our freight forwarder services to Lebanon include sea freight and air freight. Sea freight shipments usually depart from Felixstowe and arrive in Beirut in Lebanon. Sea freight shipping transit time is roughly two weeks from the UK to Lebanon. Air freight is much faster taking just a few days to include loading in the UK and customs clearance in Lebanon. Air freight is more expensive, but a preferred option if the shipment is time sensitive, valuable or particularly light (as most air freight charges are calculated by weight and dimensions). You may think that if your shipment is not large enough to fill a full container then you will need to choose air freight. This is not necessarily the case as your shipment could be palletised (for transit) and loaded into a shared container, of which the cost is split between the cargos by size taken up in the shipping container.
Make sure that you select a reputable and well-established freight forwarder to handle your shipment to Lebanon.
