Planning to ship to India, but still confused about the cargo rates. Do you find yourselves in a tie as the cargo rates mismatch with the quote received from the courier service selected by you? This is because you are not enlightened about the other factors that add up to the cargo rates from Dubai to India.

Shipment mode

The mode of the shipment depends on the kind of cargo you are dealing in. Airfreight is considered in case of fast shipment and for slower one’s ocean freight is used.

Tariff rates

Also known as negotiated rates, it is a universal term in a cargo shipment. The cargo charges hardly cost around 60-70 AED. Depending on the type of courier service opted, the tariff varies, as most cargo or moving providers in Dubai offer a 20 to 25% discount. In the case of larger quantities, you can strike a good deal with the courier services.

Geographical distance

The distance between UAE and India is why the substantial charges in cargo price. With a distance of 2475 km between the countries, costs for cargos are higher with the following factors.


If your cargo needs to reach the destination within hours or a day or two, it is better to go for air freight. If it is ok if your shipment reaches a little lately, you can avail the sea or road freights. The rates for air freight are higher than other means.


UAE follows stringent rules for cargo services to evade damages. The freight movement, tracking, cargo piracy and all things need to be streamlined for a smooth transit.
