WHAT TYPES OF SHIPMENT MODE ARE THERE?

AIR FREIGHT

Air freight is the shipment of goods via an air carrier. You are recommended to choose this shipping mode if you are transporting small quantities of goods or require the items urgently.

SEA FREIGHT

Goods transported via sea freight are delivered on a cargo vessel. This shipping method generally takes a longer time than air freight and can be further categorised into:

LESS THAN CONTAINER LOAD

Less than container load (LCL) is a mode of shipment popularly used in Indonesia. As the name suggests, it describes shipping goods in a container that’s not full.

Your freight forwarder will group your cargo with other LCL goods in the same container. In order for this to happen, the cargo must be going on the same route and port of destination. This is the main reason why LCL is also known as group shipping. Apart from that, the cargo within the shipping container will be owned by different groups of shippers.

One advantage of LCL is that it is more affordable when compared to other modes of payment. It is because you will need to share the container with other shippers, thereby cutting the entire shipment cost.

FULL CONATINER LOAD

Full container load (FCL) is the ideal mode of shipment if your planned shipment consists of goods that can accommodate one full container load.

Unlike LCL, the goods in a FCL cargo container is owned by a single shipper. However, take note that the container does not need to be fully loaded if you choose to go with this shipping method. You are also given the option of making it half or quarter loaded.

This is a cost-effective option if you plan to transport items that are more than 15 cubic meters. It is beneficial because of its faster transit time than LCL and its high level of security. Expect your cargo to be less prone to damage if you choose this route.

PROHIBITED ITEMS FOR EXPORT FROM SINGAPORE

According to the Singapore Customs, items such as rhinoceros horns are prohibited for export.

PROHIBITED ITEMS FOR IMPORT INTO INDONESIA

  • Drugs and narcotics
  • Pornographic materials
  • Explosives, ammunition, and firearms
  • Politically sensitive materials, including printed papers and pictures
  • Hunting guns, sports weapons, and any other types of gun

WHAT IS THE SHIPPING PROCEDURE FROM SINGAPORE TO INDONESIA?

SECURE A TAXPAYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER AS WELL AS ONE BUSINESS LICENSE

This helps you to carry out shipping activities to Indonesia. Aside from the taxpayer identification number, a business license is also required. This can include the trade license coming from Ministry of trade, PMA license from the Investment Coordinating Board, manufacturing license from Ministry of industry, and Exporter Identification number.

PACKAGE AND SCHEDULE THE SHIPMENT

This step involves submitting a PEB (Pemberitahuan Exspor Barang) to Indonesia’s Customs and Excise Office. You are required to submit the PEB together with other documents that the office might require, including the packing list, invoice, and any other legal paperwork provided by relevant technical bodies. Once the documents have been submitted, you need to wait for the export approval.

PHYSICAL INSPECTION OF THE GOODS

To ship to Indonesia, a mandatory physical inspection is necessary. Make sure that you allow the inspection of the goods you plan to ship to avoid any legal consequences.
