    UK to Saudi Arabia Shipping FAQs

    Here are some of the commonly asked questions when cargo shipping to Saudi Arabia. Can’t find the answer to your question? Get in touch and our experienced team will do their best to assist you.

    Shipping to Dammam, Dhuba and any other ports in Saudi Arabia can take anything between 3 working days to 4 weeks. If you opt for air freight, your goods will get there in 3-7 working days and if you ship via sea freight, it can take up to 4 weeks for your containers to reach their final destination.

    Container freight rates vary depending on how much cargo you are sending, the nature of the goods you are shipping, the weight of your cargo, whether you are looking for a door-to-door shipping from UK to Saudi Arabia or port-to-port, etc. However, the shipping can range from £1950 to £2950 for a full container load and £165 to £290 for 1 CBM.

    Anything from small electronic devices and clothes to large furniture items and even cars can be shipped in a container from the UK to Saudi Arabia. However, you need to make sure you choose the right type of container and check any limitations or requirements of the type of cargo method (air cargo vs. sea cargo) you choose to go for.

    Here at Messiah Freight, we offer both services as each of them has its pros and cons. For example, sea freight has a lower shipping cost to Saudi Arabia but it takes longer for your goods to reach their destination when compared with air cargo. On the other hand, shipping your goods by air is quicker, but it would not be a good choice if you have items that are too heavy or bulky.

    Not sure what to go for? Our team will provide you with a quote for both air and sea freight when you submit an enquiry and are also available to advise which option would be better for you based on your shipping needs.
