In shipping a container to the United Arab Emirates, you have two options: a full container load (FCL) or groupage (LCL).
If the volume of your shipment is equal to at least at least six standard pallets, then FCL will be your best option. A 40-foot container can carry 22 standard pallets, while a 20-foot container takes 10.
If your shipment volume is smaller, but you need to keep your goods isolated, FCL is also a wise choice. If isolation isn't an issue, you may want to opt for groupage-a shared container (LCL). This requires you to pay only for the space you need. Please contact iContainers for rates and other important information.
Air freight imposes some limitations on shipping in terms of volume and weight, but if you need quick shipment, it may be a better choice for you than ocean freight. iContainers provides a calculator to help you determine whether this is your best option.
