Sending your consignment from Qatar to Australia via the ocean is the cheapest transportation method. Naturally, shipping via the sea takes longer than air travel: transit times are usually around 35-45 days compared to 1-6 days by plane. Ocean shipping times vary according to a number of factors, for example weather conditions. The type of shipping container you send your goods in will also affect the timings. Hiring out a private container saves time, as you won’t be slowed down by other users. With shared (or consolidated) containers, your consignment is at risk of being delayed by other people’s cargo.
Ocean shipping is an economical solution for larger shipments, with a particularly high cost effectiveness for consignments weighing over 120kgs. If you want to import products from Qatar into Australia, ocean travel is a great option – especially if your cargo is bulky or heavy. TSL Australia is here to organise all aspects of your sea freight operation for you. We can also provide all associated services such as packing, distribution and warehousing.
There are several reasons why you may choose to do business with this tiny country with a population of just 2.6 million. For starters, Qatar is one of the most economically secure countries in the Gulf because of its huge oil and gas reserves. It has been a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO), the body regulating international trade, since 1996. For more information about this Middle Eastern country, please see the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
Australia imported $AU 275 million worth of goods from Qatar in 2016-7, with the total merchandise trade between our two countries estimated at $AU 947 million
