Elite Core Services in the GCC
Full Truckload (FTL) Shipping
With FTL logistics, a truck is loaded solely with one dedicated shipment. As an FTL shipper, you pay for the exclusive use of the truck, which means your goods won’t be sharing space with other freight. You don’t have to fill the entire load space of the vehicle, but it is more cost-effective if you do.
Benefits of FTL freight include:
Better freight rates for large goods consignments
No weight/size restrictions
Faster transit times
Minimal handling of your goods
Elite has a fleet of trucks and a team of well-trained drivers, giving you an efficient, streamlined service right across the GCC.
Less than Truckload (LTL) Shipping
LTL freight is the ideal solution for smaller shipments. Goods can range from parcels weighing just a few kilograms to multi-pallet consignments.
This service involves consolidating several separate shipments to make up a full truckload. The freight is typically arranged on pallets. In LTL shipping, you pay only for the truck-space occupied by your goods.
LTL shipping inevitably takes somewhat longer than FTL due to the extra logistics activities involved, which include consolidation and deconsolidation. However, by using sophisticated shipment management technology, our experts can determine the fastest means of getting your consignment to your customers.
When you need a first-class service in last-mile delivery, make Elite your go-to logistics provider. We deliver thousands of packages per day, and tailor our services to the needs of businesses of any size and scale.
We offer the following last-mile delivery solutions:
Same day, next day, and by-appointment deliveries
Night-time pick-ups from our clients’ fulfilment centers
Processing of COD payments and customer returns
Home delivery of items ranging from documents and parcels to home appliances and furniture
White glove services including assembly of items at the point of delivery
Elite offers next-level logistics solutions for eCommerce enterprises in the Gulf region, inclusive of warehousing, order fulfilment, shipping, and delivery.

A Little About KYC at Elite
To comply with commercial legislation in GCC countries, it’s necessary for us to undertake steps to know our customers. You’ll probably be familiar with KYC processes as they are growing in importance across a range of commercial service environments.
Fortunately, the rules for our industry are not too onerous, so the KYC process merely comprises a credit check for financial approval and the opening of an account with us, and production of the following documents:
Completed account-opening form
Additionally, you will need to provide a specific set of documentation to accompany freight shipped via our FTL and LTL services. Each consignment must be accompanied by some or all of the following documents, depending on the products you are shipping:
Certificate of Origin
Permissions and approvals
