When shipping a container to Dubai, you have two options: a full container load (FCL) or groupage (LCL).
Your shipping volume is one of the determinants of the most suitable choice here. If your shipment is equal to at least six standard pallets, then FCL (a full container load) is required. A twenty-foot container accommodates 10 standard pallets, and a forty-foot container can ship 22 standard pallets.
A full container load is also wise if you wish to avoid any risk of damage to your goods that could be caused by contact with others' merchandise.
If this is not a concern, you may want to opt for a less-than-container load (LCL)-a shared container, or groupage. You will pay only for the space you need with this arrangement. Consult iContainers for rates and other important information.
The port of Rashid and the port of Jebel Ali are Dubai's two major maritime ports. Both are managed by the Dubai Ports Authority.
Air freight may be more appropriate to your needs than ocean freight if you are working with an urgent shipment or a tight deadline. This does impose certain limitations in terms of volume and weight; consult the calculator provided by iContainers to help you decide.
