Shipping to Dubai, UAE

UK manufactured goods, for example furniture and specialist machinery/engineering components are in demand in the export market to Dubai.  Mercator has the capacity to be able to handle various sized shipments to Dubai including less than container load (LCL), palletised and full 20’ and 40’ containers.  Our freight forwarder services also covers air freight to Dubai.

There are several departures per week from the major UK ports to Dubai, including London Gateway (calling at Jebel Ali), Southampton and Felixstowe (both calling at Abu Dhabi, UAE).  Sea freight to Dubai generally takes three weeks from departure in the UK to arrival in Dubai/UAE.

Export to Dubai

Mercator offers commercial clients an efficient and personal service for exporting to Dubai.  Your shipment will be assigned to one of our export team who will take time to understand your business and will arrange the whole process for you.  No need to worry about whether you have all the documents required for UK export and Dubai import – we’ve got it covered for you.

Exporting can be stressful if you haven’t done it before or you are not familiar with the process.  It’s a great idea to appoint an experienced freight forwarder who will be able to take away the stress and handle your export to Dubai without any problems.  Appointing a freight forwarder not only gives peace of mind, it also makes good business sense: we have been in the freight forwarding business for over 30 years, we arrange shipping to Dubai regularly and as such have good contacts with the carriers and overseas freight forwarder agents.

Appoint a Freight Forwarder

So if you are looking for a freight forwarder to handle your export to Dubai, look no further.  Mercator can assist you with all your shipments to Dubai.  Mercator is an independent freight forwarder, still managed and owned by the founding family.  We care about our business and so we care about yours too.  We think we’re different to the other global players, and whilst we still have the global reach of the bigger carriers, we also offer a service which is not just about numbers.  Appointing a freight forwarder can not only save you time and stress, it can also save you money.
