Our international freight forwarding experts are able to support customers throughout the entire import and export business planning process: we listen to your business needs to identify the most effective solutions in relation to the type of goods and urgency of delivery, prepare the necessary documentation for shipment, and personally follow the transit of goods, offering appropriate monitoring services.

Shipping goods to Kuwait

If, as part of your business, you plan to ship goods to Kuwait, you should know that there are several bureaucratic requirements to be met to ensure that the goods arrive at their destination.

The introduction of international cargo into the country requires the preparation of a number of documents: the Commercial Invoice, the packing list, the Declaration of Free Export, the Certificate of Origin, and any additional certificates to be produced when transporting particular types of goods. It is then necessary to ensure that all documents concerning the transport, packaging and labelling of packages to be shipped to Kuwait are in order.

Beware, however: Kuwait has certain limitations for the introduction of particular categories of goods, which may therefore require special authorisations – foodstuffs, for example – or products that may be totally banned from entry (products containing alcohol and pork, for example).

Importing goods from Kuwait

In the course of your business activities, do you need to import goods from Kuwait to Italy? Again, you should be aware that several documents are required to carry out all business transactions properly.

In order to bring goods into the country from Kuwait, it is necessary to produce the specific documentation certifying the characteristics of the goods and the producer and buyer details, as well as the value of the goods (Certificate of Origin and Commercial Invoice), the declaration of free import as well as the bill of lading.

Any questions?

The differences concern both cubic capacity and weight that can be loaded. A standard 20ft container can hold up to about 21.500 kilos of goods (24.000 kilos tare weight included) and has an average capacity of 30 cbm; there also certified containers that can hold up to about 27.500 kilos of goods (30.480 kilos tare weight included). A 40 ft container can generally squeeze about 60 cbm worth of goods inside and you can load 26.500 kilos of goods (30.460 kilos tare weight included).

Among the factors to be taken into consideration are requested time for the loading; place of loading; type of goods; shipping company.

  • When a specific time for the loading is required, an additional charge could be added. Furthermore, whether the company exceeds the franchise, extra costs could be charged.
  • The place of loading must correspond to the one indicated in the booking. Modification, where necessary, might require extra costs.
  • There are costs related to the type of goods you are willing to ship. Dangerous or IMO goods, for example, require specific procedures and their cost is defined at the time of request.
  • Each company applies its own rates. Our experts identify the company which best suits your needs.
