Duration of Shipping from Singapore to the United Arab Emirates
The duration of shipping from Singapore to the UAE can vary depending on the method of shipping you choose. We offer both air and sea freight options to cater to your unique shipping requirements and timelines.
Typically, air freight from Singapore to the UAE takes around 1 to 3 days, depending on customs clearance and the exact locations of pickup and delivery. It’s ideal for urgent shipments or perishable items.
Sea freight, on the other hand, is a slower but more cost-effective solution. It usually takes around 14 days depending on the exact ports of departure and arrival. Additional time should be taken into account for customs clearance and inland transportation. We provide Full Container Load (FCL) and Less than Container Load (LCL) options for sea freight.
With LCL shipping, you only pay for the volume you use, making it a cost-effective solution for smaller shipments that do not require a full container. FCL is a popular choice for large-volume shipments as it offers exclusivity and added security since the container is not shared with other shippers.
Both FCL and LCL have their advantages, and the best choice depends on the size of your shipment, your budget, and your delivery time frame. Our experienced team can help guide you in selecting the best sea freight option for your needs.
