FREIGHT CONSOLIDATION

Freight consolidation refers to containing different batches of goods from different importers at evenhanded rates. Since importers with less than container load (LCL) will not be able to fill up the full container, freight consolidation enables small importers to combine their goods together in one full container load (FCL). This helps importers who have lesser load saves cost since they don’t have to ship a half empty container.

LOWEST RATES

Sea freight is considered as one of the cheapest form of transportation compared to air freight. Sea freight is charged based on the sea container rate, whereas air freight is charged based on the weight of the stuff goods. Hence, this allows shippers to ship a wider variety of weighted goods at a competitive rate.

PROCESS BEHIND SHIPPING FROM GERMANY TO SINGAPORE

Shipping procedures vary from one country to another. This is because there are different rules and regulations that govern the different and distinctive imports and exports required by different countries.

When exporting from Germany, article 161 of the German Customs Code should be perceived and adhered to. The German Trade and Invest office issues authorizations and control documents. Goods such as defense goods and dual-use goods need special authorization.

In Singapore, exports and imports are controlled by the Customs Act through the Regulation of Imports and Exports Act. It is an offence to import goods to Singapore without having secured a Customs permit to authorize the importation.

When moving items from Germany to Singapore, there are multiple routes and options one can take. Here is an example of one of the methods ALS uses: After being engaged by you, we will arrange to send your items via sea freight. We work out the most economical route to send your items to Singapore’s port directly from a port nearby your side in Germany.

STEP 1

ALS will send (if necessary) you some packing materials, boxes, international custom forms to be filled up and returned and shipping labels to ship the items to the nearby warehouse.

STEP 2

After packing your belongings, a hired truck picks up the boxes and brings it to a warehouse for consolidation.

STEP 3

The goods are consolidated, as it is a Less Cargo Load (LCL) shipment, packed into a container and loaded onto the ship that will make its way to the Germany.

STEP 4

A few days prior to reaching the port, the ship’s captain will submit a report to the German government on the type of vessel, crew and cargo it is carrying.

STEP 5

After receiving clearance to enter Singapore’s port, the container will be unloaded via large cranes.

STEP 6

At this point, custom officials will inspect selected containers to ensure the contents adhere to the information on the submitted documents.

STEP 7

Once clearance has been given, the container will be loaded onto a truck and trucked to an import distribution centre. The container will then be opened and the cargo will be separated and transported to their respective locations around the island.

STEP 8

Afterwards, you will receive your items to your door step via a local trucking service.
