We can arrange ex-works and FOB shipments depending on our client’s requirements. Our specialised breakbulk team can arrange ex-works and FOB shipments for all larger out-of-gauge cargo. We can arrange any type of air freight shipping on a door-to-door basis, whether your shipment is of utmost urgency or it requires a full charter of an aircraft.

Saudi Arabia is an important country for freight forwarding due to its strategic location, at the crossroads of several major trade routes. This includes the Red Sea, the Gulf, and the Indian Ocean, allowing for transportation between Asia, Europe and Africa. As one of the largest producers and exporters of oil and gas, there is a significant demand for logistics services to support this industry.

Some of the major ports in Saudi Arabia include:

King Abdulaziz Port: The largest port in the Arabian Gulf, handling a significant portion of Saudi Arabia’s imports and exports.

Jeddah Islamic Port: Located in Jeddah, this is the biggest port in the Red Sea and a major gateway for goods entering and leaving Saudi Arabia.

Jubail Commercial Port: Situated on the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia and handles a significant amount of petrochemical exports.

Yanbu Commercial Port: An important export hub for petrochemicals and minerals, located in Yanbu.

King Fahd Industrial Port: This port is located adjacent to the Yanbu Commercial Port and specialises in handling bulk cargo and containers.

Duba Port: Located in northwest Saudi Arabia on the coast of the Red Sea. The main port city associated with the NEOM Project.

Saudi Arabia Freight Export

How long does it take to ship to Saudi Arabia from the UK?

It takes approximately one week to ship via air cargo from the UK to Saudi Arabia.

Shipping Costs from UK to Saudi Arabia

The most cost-effective method of shipping to Saudi Arabia is through part-load container shipping. However, it’s important to note that certain items may be difficult to find in Saudi Arabia. Therefore, when you factor in the expenses of sourcing and replacing smaller items once they arrive, it often works out cheaper and more convenient to ship a larger quantity of goods. We determine part-load shipping costs from the UK to Saudi Arabia based on the size of your shipment and the space it occupies within the container.
