Affected by the new crown epidemic, freight rates have risen very high. Ocean freight rates are much higher than at the same time last year, and the cost of shipping a 40-foot sea container from China to Dubai is gradually increasing.
A sharp rise in Asian exports and a drop in shipments from the rest of the world has distorted global trade flows, causing bottlenecks at ports, chaotic container flows and pushing up shipping prices in the process.
Sea Freight Costs from China to Dubai
Sea freight is the most commonly used method for shipping goods from China to the UAE. The cost of sea freight is influenced by several factors, including the volume and weight of the cargo, the shipping route, the type of goods being transported, and any additional services required. Shipping containers are commonly used in sea freight, and the cost can vary depending on whether you opt for a Full Container Load (FCL) or a Less than Container Load (LCL).
As of 2021, the average cost for sea freight from China to the UAE is approximately $500 to $2,000 for a 20-foot container, while a 40-foot container may cost between $800 and $3,500, depending on the factors mentioned above. It is essential to note that these costs are subject to fluctuation due to changes in fuel prices, demand, and other market dynamics.
