If you have cargo to be shipped to Jordan you’ll need to make a few decisions about your shipment. The first decision is whether you wish for the goods to travel via air or sea freight. The first obvious difference between sea and air is the transit time. Shipping via sea freight to Jordan can take around 14 days (via the Suez Canal), whereas air freight to Jordan arrives within the same day.
The second main difference between sea and air shipping is the cost. Air freight comes at a premium, but if your shipment is urgent, you may choose to transport your goods in this way. Sea freight liners operate to Aqaba from Felixstowe in the UK, and air freight is generally to Amman from major UK airports.
It is wise to appoint a freight forwarder to handle your shipping to Jordan as they can arrange all aspects for you at your instruction. This is especially valuable to your business if you are unfamiliar with shipping. Without specific knowledge of shipping and also local restrictions in Jordan, mistakes can be rather costly.
Our export team handles shipping to Jordan regularly, and we have a partner office in Amman thanks to our founding membership of the global freight forwarding network Marco Polo Line (MPL). MPL is an exclusive network of small to medium sized independent freight forwarders, and all members are carefully vetted before being allowed into the group. So we can be safe in the knowledge that our worldwide partners operate how we do, with the customer at the forefront of what we do.
Our partner agent in Amman, Jordan, will be able to arrange clearance at the port, advise of any required documents, and arrange for a delivery to door (if required). This is rather special as there are not many UK based forwarders who will be able to handle your whole shipment with you from start to finish.
