Import from Dubai (UAE) in the shortest time

UAE is one of the border neighbors of Iran and also one of the old business partners of our country. Due to the blue border with the Emirates, the cost of transportation and clearance of goods from Dubai to Iran is affordable and has a lot of profit. For this reason, Dubai is one of the favorite business centers of Iranian businessmen

Due to the maritime border with the UAE, importing from Dubai and transporting goods to Iran and clearance of goods is low-cost and affordable, and merchants can import their cargo at a lower speed and cost than in other countries. This has led to the great interest of Iranian businessmen in trading and importing goods from Dubai.

Also, one of the issues that traders face when importing from the UAE is the issue of returning goods. Sometimes the goods are imported to Iran and reach you, but the goods are not of the quality you want or may even be damaged.

Due to the size and complexity of its two important ports, namely Bandar Rashid and Jabal Ali port city, Dubai has been able to dominate the goods and export markets of the Middle East. In the following, we introduced these two important ports:

Jebel Ali Port, located in the Jebel Ali Free Zone and approximately 35 km southwest of Dubai, is a port city. Jebel Ali Port is one of the largest sea ports in the Middle East and is known as the ninth largest and busiest port in the world.
