When it comes to export shipping to Qatar, Mercator is able to handle the process from start to finish. We can collect, pack and load your export shipment in the UK, complete UK export customs and arrange the air or sea freight to Qatar from the UK. Once your goods have reached Qatar, we can instruct our freight forwarding partner based in Doha to assist with customs clearance and delivery to door.
It is this comprehensive offering that puts our service level above other freight forwarders. In 2006 our MD (Paul) founded the global freight forwarding network MarcoPoloLine (MPL) with three other European agents. Today, we have over 340 partner offices in 99 countries, all vetted and recommended to join the group, who can assist with local matters, so you can relax knowing your cargo is in good hands. Through Mercator as your main point of contact, we make exporting to Qatar as simple and stress free as possible.
Our export services to Qatar include both sea and air freight. Sea freight to Qatar departures are weekly from various UK ports including Felixstowe and Southampton, and call at Doha in Qatar with a transit time of approximately 30 days. From single pallets and shared shipping containers through to multiple containers, we can handle all sizes of cargo, and most commodities. Commonly, we handle UK manufactured electrical components and engineering works for export shipping to Qatar.
Air freight departures are daily from the UK calling at Doha. Air freight is much quicker than sea freight, however, it does come with a premium price. If you are short on time, then air freight is a good choice for your export shipment to Qatar. Don’t forget to factor in closing times for the airline departure, loading, unloading and customs clearance to the transit time (adding a few days either side of the shipment).
If you have sold goods to a company in Qatar, you will have agreed an international term of sale (incoterm) which will set out what you (as the supplier) are responsible for when it comes to shipping to Qatar, and what your customer must arrange themselves. If you are responsible for the whole shipment, then we can arrange a complete door to door service for you. Or if you just need to deliver the shipment to a Qatar port or airport, we can also handle that and then hand it over to our agent in Qatar so that they can arrange the final part of the export on behalf of your customer.
With our contacts based in Qatar, we can call upon their valuable local knowledge, so that we can ascertain any required customs procedures, documentation and restrictions on imports into Qatar.
