Freight Options

When it comes time to ship, what is the best option for you?  This section is going to help you to make a decision on the best option that fulfils your requirements.  There are several options that are available to you.

1. Air Freight - Smaller or urgent shipments.  Saudi Arabia is an Import country therefore air freight exports are relatively cheap and very cost effective.  Shipments will often be in the destination country within a week subject to availability.

2. Sea Freight, FCL - Full container load is where the customer takes the option of paying for all of a sea shipping container.  For household moves this is the best option as the container will usually be loaded outside your property and then taken to the shipping line for transit to your required port.  The two most common options are 20 foot and 40 foot containers that are 8 foot square by the relevant length. This allows for approxiamtely 28-32 CBM (cubic meters) and 55-60 CBM in one shipment.

3. Sea Freight, LCL - Loose container load, where various customers have their shipment put together in one container, is also an option however in Saudi Arabia it can be expensive. We don't offer LCL shipments as standard due to the unreliabilty of transit time and also the relitivly high handling costs. Due to cheap air rates out of Saudi Arabia, we much prefer the air option to LCL.

4. Road Freight - When travelling to the UAE, Kuwait and other countries that are joined to Saudi Arabia we can often offer rates by road.  This is good for customers that are travelling as your belongings can be stored in KSA until your permit's and visas are available then transport them directly to your new property in one vehicle.

5. RORO - Roll on, Roll off service's are designed for over size and / or wheeled transport. Often used for the transport of large vehicles when they will not fit within a standard shipping container.

This is just an overview to give you some ideas on what may be the best option for you however we are more than happy to visit you and make a survey so that the best option can be quoted ensuring you get the best price and the service level you require.
