Mercator can handle a variety of freight when it comes to export shipping to Lebanon. Our freight forwarder services cover all industries for export to Lebanon. We have handled the shipping of various UK manufactured goods to Lebanon including engine parts, electronics, furniture and industrial chemicals.
Our freight forwarder services to Lebanon include sea freight and air freight. Sea freight to Lebanon usually departs from Felixstowe and arrives in Beirut taking around two weeks from port to port. Air freight to Lebanon is much faster taking just a few days including 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 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 the case as your shipment could be palletised and loaded into a shared shipping container.
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 Lebanon, our partner agent will be able to assist with local customs clearance and delivery to its destination if required. 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 forwarding partner 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 to Lebanon from the UK.
