Air Freight and Ocean Freight.Either choice has its pros and cons, which we will cover on this page.
Ocean Freight From China to Dubai and the UAE
Less than Container Load (LCL):
LCL shipping means that your cargo will be given space in a shared container that carries consignments of other shippers. The advantage is that you only have to pay for the space that your freight occupies, not the whole container. If you’re planning on moving small shipments from China to UAE, then LCL shipping might be the most affordable option.
Full Container Load (FCL):
FCL shipping means paying for the rental and transportation of a shipping container from China to the UAE for your exclusive use at a flat rate. This might be cheaper than LCL, especially if you are transporting large, heavy goods.
Air Freight from China to Dubai and the UAE
If your products are required in the UAE urgently, air freight is the best way to move your freight. However, be prepared to foot a larger bill for this fast and flexible service.
How Much Does it Cost to Ship Freight From China to the UAE?
The short answer is it depends. Freight rates depend on the nature of the goods you want to ship. Perishables may require refrigeration. Extra-large goods could call for an oversized container, for example.
They also depend on your chosen shipping method, as air freight is usually more expensive than ocean freight. They depend too on the volume, size, and weight of your consignment, all of which could prohibit shipment by air or affect the size and number of ocean shipping containers required.
As a guide, if your goods weigh under 100 kg, air freight can be just as economical as using an ocean carrier. And, of course, it will be quicker. Consignments over 100 kg that aren’t urgently required in the UAE will usually be more economical to ship by sea from China.
For cargo weighing under 35 kg, please get quotes from parcel carriers or couriers, as Shipa Freight does not provide freight forwarding services for goods in this weight bracket.
