Important Operational Notes

- WHEN SENDING MEDICAL ITEMS...

Please make sure you are sending your items in the correct containers: refrigerated if necessary!

Please ensure to send the medical items only upon receipt of the clearance and approval by UNHRD Dubai. Copies of shipping documents will be required beforehand for the same (AWB or B/L or Non Commercial Invoice, detailed packing list & analysis certificate).


- before sending any item...

Contact us in advance to find out WHAT THE CORRECT DOCUMENTATION WE NEED IS, and how long in advance we need the original copies!!!!


- When sending CHEMICAL or DANGEROUS GOODS...

Please ask your supplier for the MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET (MSDS) and send it to us along the rest of the documentation!


- WHEN FILLING IN YOUR BILL OF LADING...

Do state clearly the INCOTERMS!!! These establish whose obligation it is to take care of the customs clearance and will prevent any misunderstandings and unnecessary costs.
