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.

Facilitating EK Smart Transit Consignments

Emirates Sky Cargo in coordination with Dubai Trade & Dubai Customs is introducing a Smart Sea-Air Transit Express facility for sea-air transit consignments arriving in Jebel Ali Sea port and exiting through Dubai Cargo Village.

Transit cargo of the Freight Forwarders joining this program will be transported in EK Sky Cargo secured trucks from Jebel Ali Port to Dubai Airport location.

To arrange fast clearance of goods and to eliminate the normal process of keeping deposit and claiming refund for the participants of this program, Dubai Customs provides virtual guarantee facility in place of deposit collection and automation of claim process for the freight forwarders for moving the cargo using EK Smart Transit program under Transit Customs Procedure.

The collection of registration charges for such Transit Declarations will only be allowed through Credit/Debit account so that claim registration charge can be auto-collected through the same account in order to support the claim automation process.
