Airfreight Between Norway And Qatar - Advice?

I am currently trying to navigate the jungle of airfreight providers to get a cost estimate for a one-off shipping of a huge package from Norway to Qatar, but I find it both hard to separate "middle-men" from actual providers, and get a typical price quote.
Are there any airfreight-savvy people that can recommend a carrier/company for this case, or (even better) actually finding an price estimate (or a ballpark figure of what I can expect)?

The package is a tough cardboard box measuring 1500x640x640 mm, contains an electronic musical instrument and weighs 102 kg. It will be shipped from either TRD or OSL (depending on cost) to DOH, and will be delivered/picked up at the airports (no need for land transport at either end). The package should be insured for a value of about 1500€.

Any help or pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Well why not ask QR?
We carry around four pallets of Norwegian Salmon at 4 tonnes a pallet every day out of ARN to DOH. I am sure there is room for your box. QR have own cargo dept in ARN, or contact a cargo agent in OSL.

Thank God they upgraded ARN to A330! Otherwise the A319 would be a flying fish, pun intended!
