As many customers instinctively ask us for the price of shipping cargo from China to Singapore without providing us any of their cargo information. the question customer often to ask is; "china ship to Singapore how much"; "how much price ship to Singapore"; "what is the price ship to Singapore"; "how to ship to Singapore"; "how to start shipping";"how to open an account"...as many.... normally I would like to send a price list to customer to learn the price with different mode of shipping like FAQ. as feedback tell us that many customers still don't know how to ship the cargo.
We need below information to make the accurate quotation;
Mode of shipping;
Where is the cargo in China;
Deliver to what address in Singapore;
We usually ask customer for some cargo information, then make a quotation for reply, but sometime customers even don't know the cargo info, maybe their purchase work not yet being started, just inquire to know a estimated cost, a roughly cost, a procedure...,. So hereunderbelow illustrated different mode of shipping cargo from China to Singapore to customers to learn which way would meet their need.
DDU means delivery and duty unpaid, DDU LCL consolidation sea shipping service means from our warehouse in Guangzhou to consignee door in Singapore. if you have cargo few cbm, use this consolidation sea shipping to Singapore is most economy, DJcargo handle all work from its warehouse to consignee address (not from factory, shipper, vendor, supplier address, goods must send to our warehouse), customer no need do anything about import customs work, pick up cargo in Singapore, as we offer free local delivery to consignee. customer only need pay freight cost, while Singapore import side pay GST 7% of total goods value.
Note: you may ask that it claims door to door, why not from vendor's address? in China cargo with shipper/ vendor/factory/supplier can be anywhere. a consolidation warehouse in a located city. like DJcargo's warehouse in Guangzhou, if sending car to pick up goods from supplier is most expensive, no logistics company afford such cost. you may also ask, can you pick up goods from vendor? its not a good job for logistics company to arrange picking goods up from far way vendor's address, better ask vendor arrange cargo send to our warehouse, click link to learn why
CIF shipping terms is wide known, but its fade from shipping service market, especially CHINA to SINGAPORE line, if you have cargo few cbm want consolidation sea shipping with others in a container that which handle by a logistics company. its different mode of shipping. CIF Singapore consolidation sea shipping is lesser competitive than DDU shipping service. so we normally don't advice customers use this way to transport their cargo.
CIF Singapore LCL consolidation sea shipping; normally shipper handle export works, pay the freight cost, Consignee assign the job to their local broker or agent to handle import customs works and delivery, pay local handling cost.
FOB export port LCL consolidation sea shipping; normally shipper handle export works, customer pay the freight cost, consignee assign the job to their local broker or agent to handle import customs works and delivery, pay local handling cost.
These two mode of shippings would cost higher than DDU does, customer or consignee need do many works, and troublesome
Note: trade terms is CIF/FOB to ship the cargo, the cargo normally arranged by shipper's own forwarder to handle, or by any condition, it can't say which way is better, all depends on cost, make clear every step may involved cost is reasonable for you. then use whatever you like.
