Partnership and trade between the United Arab Emirates and the Russian Federation is developing and improving dramatically: profitable commercial offers and cooperation lead to a continuous commodity exchange. Export-import operations between two countries are performed in an easy and fast way, thanks to the developed freight forwarding network.
One of the most frequently used modes of transportation when shipping cargo from the UAE to Russia is by ocean freight. No wonder, as the advantages of this transportation mode are well known: it is significantly cheaper, normally costing about five times less than air freight. Thus, it is more affordable. Another advantage of ocean freight: hundreds of containers can be loaded on a single ship. Thus, it is really efficient, especially suitable for large, containerized cargoes.
Mind that it is also one of the slowest ways to get your cargo from the UAE to the Russian Federation, delivery time can reach up to 30 days or more. But when speed is not the highest priority, opting for ocean freight from the UAE to Russia is a prudent thing to do.
Sea freight usually means utilizing 20ft, 40tf standard or 40’ high cube containers. You should also be aware of the available shipping options for the sea freight. That is either Full Container (FCL) and Shared Container (LCL – Less than a Container Load).
An FCL option is suitable when goods volume ranges from 11–25-euro pallets or 10-20 standard pallets. The shipper doesn’t have to share the container with other shippers’ cargo, which improves cargo safety and streamlines the management of ocean freight transportation.
Less than Container Load, or LCL option, is used when the exporter does not need to book a full container since the shipment is too small. An LCL container is used for smaller shipments that need to be shipped cheaply, and in a time-sensitive way.
