Shipping methods from Singapore to the UAEThe method of sea freight and air freight are the methods used to ship goods, personal items, and cars from Singapore to the UAE, and each of them has its own method and cost, and in the following points we explain each of them:
1- Sea freight from Singapore to DubaiShips loaded with containers or cars move from all ports of Singapore, whether Jurong Port or the main port of Singapore, heading to the various ports of the Emirates, whether Jebel Ali Port or Khalifa Port
Sea freight is the slowest option, but it is about five times cheaper than air freight. If you are traveling on a limited budget, then sea freight is ideal for you. Freight ship trips from Singapore to the UAE take about 14 days, and sea freight methods vary from Full container shipping, to less than container load shipping, or ro-ro shipping.
- Full Container Load (FCL) FCLIn this method, the full space available in the container is used to transport the goods, and the FCL method uses different types of containers, such as 20 feet and 40 feet, to ship the goods.
If your load is enough to be loaded into a 20ft or 40ft container, in this case, a full container will be reserved for you.
- Less than a container load (partial freight) LCLLCL (less than full container load) shipping method, is one of the most common ways of shipping goods, as it is cost-reducing, reliable, and timely.
In this way, if the total volume of your shipment is less than about 15 cubic meters, you will share a container with other people, which saves you a lot of costs instead of booking a full container.
- RORO shippingThis method is used when shipping cars by sea, where the car is placed directly on the deck of the ship and not inside a container, by driving it, and then delivering it directly to the port of arrival and then to the desired place.
