Export to Qatar


Sales of all goods/products to Qatar from Jul 2016 to Apr 2017 accounted for £0.15 billion, which were carried out in 8,899 shipments.

Trades that were worth less than £1 million accounted for £149.4 million of this total, which were carried out in 8,747 shipments.

This means that if we exclude the top 1.71% of shipments, the rest had an average value of just £17,080.57. The breakdown of these smaller trades is shown in the chart on the right for the top 10 categories.

Shipping and logistics

6,785 shipments went by air (58% of them via London Heathrow) and the other 2,105 went via sea ports.

5.5% of the shipments used customs special procedures (Inward Processing or Outward Processing Relief or Re-exports). Most shipments of goods to most destinations do not use these special procedures.
