Shipping to Saudi Arabia

When it comes to shipping to Saudi Arabia it is a sensible idea to appoint a reputable freight forwarder. A freight forwarder can take care of everything for you, from collection of the goods in the UK, delivery to warehouse/port for packing, air or sea freight to Saudi Arabia from the UK, and clearance through customs in Saudi Arabia.

Air and Sea Freight to Saudi Arabia

If your shipment is urgent then we can arrange air freight to Saudi Arabia within a few days, the whole process taking under a week from door in the UK through to landing and customs clearance at destination.  This is a particularly useful option if you have small, light or delicate palletised cargo to ship to Saudi Arabia.

If you are on a tighter budget and you have a few more weeks to spare, then sea freight to Saudi Arabia will likely be your preferred shipping method.  With around 5,000 miles between the UK and Saudi Arabia, sea freight will take around two weeks.  Sea freight to Saudi Arabia is a great option if you have a bulky or heavy shipment.  Our cargo sizing options for sea freight shipping to Saudi Arabia include LCL (less than container), FCL (full container) and various container sizes including 40 foot, 20 foot, open top and flat rack (the latter two used for oversized cargo that will not fit into regular shipping containers).
