SHIPMENT MODES USED TO SHIP FROM MALAYSIA TO SINGAPORE

Air Freight

Air freight is the transportation of goods via an aircraft. This mode of shipping is most suitable for smaller items or if you require your cargo to be delivered quickly.

Sea Freight

Goods transported via sea freight are shipped on a shipping vessel. This mode of transportation is typically cheaper and takes a longer time than air freight.

This mode of transport can be categorised into

  • Less than container load

Less than container load (LCL) is suitable for shippers who do not have sufficient goods to accommodate a fully loaded container, requiring them to deal with a consolidator to arrange the booking of their cargo.

  • Full container load

Full container load (FCL) is one of the most commonly used transportation modes when shipping from Malaysia to Singapore. This shipping method is suitable for shippers who have a cargo load that is enough to fill a full container load.

Trucking

Trucking refers to the transportation of goods via a truck. It is usually used to deliver smaller quantities of goods over short distances.

PROCEDURE FOR SHIPPING FROM MALAYSIA TO SINGAPORE

DETERMINE THE CONTROLLED/RESTRICTED GOODS

Prior to shipping, find out whether your goods are subject to restriction or if these are controlled. Doing such will help you determine whether or not it’s safe to ship your items to the country.

REGISTER WITH ACRA (ACCOUNTING AND CORPORATE REGULATORY AUTHORITY) OR OTHER EQUIVALENT AGENCY

This is necessary for you to get an UEN or Unique Entity Number. You need this number to activate your Customs Account.

REGISTER FOR AN INTERBANK GIRO ACCOUNT

This is a vital step so you can pay GST, duties, and other relevant fees with Singapore Customs. Creating an account involves submitting your IBG form to the customs directly. You will then pay the necessary fees through your IBG after gaining approval.

PROVIDE SECURITY

Some of the forms of security acceptable in this case are insurance bonds and finance company or bank guarantees

GET A CUSTOMS IMPORT PERMIT

You can submit your application for the permit online via TradeNet system.

CLEAR CARGO BY FURNISHING ALL THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS

Some of the documents that you may need to submit for containerized and conventional cargo are printed copy of your approved customs permit, as well as supporting documents, including your packing list, Air Waybill, Bill of Lading, and invoice.

BENEFITS OF ENGAGING A FREIGHT FORWARDER

It’s because freight forwarders are capable of using their network to trace any existing problem quickly from its source, thereby finding immediate solutions.

Flexible with minimal effort

With a good freight forwarder, you have an assurance that all disastrous circumstances, such as delays or redirected shipments, will be handled quickly and smoothly with the right resources.

Helps you save money

It is because it’s possible to find freight forwarders that offer services at reasonable prices. You can even negotiate for lower terms because some of them deal with high volume of containers.
