Sea freight

Sea freight is the new and exciting method of getting
bulky and heavy goods right at your doorstep.

 

Bring in furniture like cabinets and sofas to redecorate your home.
Experience the sound systems freshly released from the US market.
Own the barbeque pit, billiards table or lawn equipment that you've
been eyeing for quite some time.

All these and more - you can now enjoy without paying high air freight rates to Singapore.

 

Note: Do expect to wait longer for the items to be delivered as we will be using vessels from US to Singapore. The entire journey takes about 35 to 60 working days from Sail Date. Find out more about Sea Freight here.

Here are examples of how the shipping charges are calculated:


Example 1
 

Don purchased a Queen size pocketed spring mattress that weighs 20 kg and has a dimension of 180 x 135 x 28 cm. The volumetric weight of this item will be 136.1 kg and the product cost is USD 296.99.

The shipping cost of this item via Sea Freight will be:

Base charge: $39.90 + Weight charge: (136.1 x $3.90) = $570.69
Total Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF for Customs Assessment) will be: ($296.99 X 1.3) + $570.69 = $956.78
Don will need to pay customs tax of SGD 66.97.


If Don were to ship this item via Air Freight, the cost will be:
Base charge: $13.40 + Weight Charge: (136.1 x $7.20) + (136.1 x$1.90) = $1,251.91
Total Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF for Customs Assessment) will be: ($296.99 x 1.3) + $1,251.91 = $1,637.99
As the CIF is above SGD 400, Don will need to pay customs tax of SGD $114.66


The savings from using Sea freight is $681.21, a 60% savings!

*Please note that the Queen size mattresses in US are of different sizes than in Singapore.



Example 2
 

Anna bought an evolution surfboard that weighs 80 kg and has a dimension of 218 x 55 x 5 cm. The volumetric weight for this item will be 11.99 kg and the product cost is $399.

The shipping cost of this item via Sea Freight will be:

Base charge: $39.90 + Weight charge: (80 x 3.90) = $351.90
Total Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF for Customs Assessment) will be: ($399 x 1.3) + $351.90 = $870.60
Anna will need to pay customs tax of SGD 60.94.


If Anna were to ship this item via Air Freight, the cost will be:
Base charge: $13.40 + Weight Charge: (80 x $7.20) + (80 x$1.90) = $741.40
Total Cost, Insurance and Freight (CIF for Customs Assessment) will be: ($399 x 1.3) + $741.40 = $1,260.10
As the CIF is above SGD 400, Anna will need to pay customs tax of SGD $88.21
