Full Load and Part Load Shipping Containers

Fill an entire container with our full container load (FCL) services. Also known as sole-use containers, you get the entire container to yourself. This method is preferred for international removals, giving anyone moving from Dubai to the UK complete peace of mind, as you’ll know that your items are safe and secure.

For those sending a smaller number of bulky items to Dubai from the UK, less than a container load (LCL) might be the best option. Sometimes referred to as part load containers, partial load containers, or shared containers, this is cheaper than sending goods via air freight. You can easily ship large goods to Dubai without having to fill a complete container.
