Priority Discharge and Delivery of Import FCL Containers with Sea-Air Cargo

We are pleased to announce the launch of ‘Sea-Air Containers’ service on Dubai Trade.


The new service is implemented for customers to submit the list of containers carrying Sea-Air cargo which need to be further transshipped by Air through Dubai Airports. The Sea-Air containers list must be submitted before the vessel’s arrival so that these containers can be planned for priority discharge and stacked in a dedicated area for faster delivery. However, priority discharging will always depend on the containers’ stowage location and vessel operation program. In some circumstances discharging on priority would not be possible. All time slots shall be opened for Sea-Air containers to prioritise their delivery.


Kindly note that the ‘Transit ROW to ROW’ Customs Declaration with Point of Exit as Dubai Airports must be processed. Please ensure that the DP World charges are settled prior to the vessel’s arrival. Unless Transit Declaration is processed for Dubai Airports, containers will not be marked as Sea-Air and thus, will not be eligible for priority discharge and delivery.


The service is assigned to all Freight Forwarders. Users can request access from their admins and start uploading the Sea-Air containers lists through Dubai Trade as e-mails will not be entertained further.
