WHAT TYPES OF SHIPMENT MODES ARE THERE?

Less than Container Load

LCL shipping is a type of shipment used in Australia, which is ideal for those with a load that fall short of the minimum threshold when it comes to transporting goods using a typical shipping container. Short for Less than Container Load, LCL can offer plenty of benefits to shippers.

One benefit is the lower shipment rate than what you’ll pay for a full container. You’ll only need to pay the space you consume based on volume, instead of on weight. In addition, you can drop off and pick up the cargo from the specific warehouse where the loading and unloading of containers is done.

That said, there’s no need to get the help of a middleman just to ensure that your cargo reaches its final destination, which is Singapore.

Full Container Load

Short for Full Container Load shipping, FCL is a more cost-effective option if you’re planning to ship more than fifteen cubic meters of cargo from Australia to Singapore. In comparison to air freight, FCL is more cost-effective although the latter has a longer shipping time.

Shipping time, however, is still faster in comparison to LCL as FCL involves less unforeseen delays and overall handling. Also, an added benefit is the high level of security it offers. FCL can lessen the risk of your cargo getting damaged because of the minimal handling of the container.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SHIP FROM AUSTRALIA TO SINGAPORE?

Shipping goods from Australia to Singapore often takes around four to eight weeks. This period may vary based on the time of year as well as your chosen forwarder.

In addition, whether you choose to ship your items by sea freight or air freight will also determine the speed at which your cargo will arrive

WHAT IS THE SHIPPING PROCEDURE FROM AUSTRALIA TO SINGAPORE?

ARRANGE FOR SHIPPING FROM AUSTRALIA TO SINGAPORE

This specific step requires you to gain full understanding of the different tariffs, licenses, and regulations involved in shipping your items. In this case, note that you need to get an IN Permit before you can ship your goods. You can obtain it via TradeNet. GST and/or duty will then be settled right after importation.

PREPARE THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS

The documents that you need to submit to clear customs actually depend on the goods you’re planning to ship to Singapore. Some examples of the documents are bill of lading or airway bill, certificate of origin, censorship regulations, pro-forma invoice, packing list, and public health requirements

CHECK OFFICIAL SOURCES FOR RULES AND REGULATIONS

Keep in mind that the shipping rules and regulations change from one time to another, so it’s best to gather all the information you need – preferably updated ones – from reliable and official sources.

If you need to ship large items of huge quantities, then note that you might need a container cargo. An international shipper, on the other hand, is a good option for smaller amounts.

PAY THE NECESSARY FEES, DUTY AND TARIFFS

Do this once your goods reach Singapore. Any local taxes both in Australia and Singapore may also need to be settled. Upon settling everything, you can expect your goods to be ready for delivery to their final consumers.

COMMON PROHIBITED ITEMS TO BE IMPORTED TO SINGAPORE

  • Chewing gum, excluding those that gained the approval of the Health Sciences Authority for use as oral dental and medicinal gums
  • Cigarette lighters, particularly those shaped like a revolver or pistol
  • Firecrackers
  • Rhinoceros horn
  • Some prohibited telecommunication equipment, like military communication devices, scanning receivers, and telephone voice changing device
