Singapore is a large Island City-state. It is the most modern city in the whole of South-East Asia and the technology hub of Asia. The country is well recognized in buying foreign goods.
Basic Shipping Steps
There are basic steps to follow when shipping to Singapore (ส่ง ของ ไป สิงคโปร์, which is the term in Thai). They include:
Packaging your shipment: Packaging your goods appropriately is vital in shipping. Packages may be rough-handled during shipping so packaging your shipment with materials like packaging chips and bubble wrap provides your goods with adequate protection from any damage which might occur when shipping.
Providing accurate details: Carriers will need the correct shipping details to generate documentation which is required by the customs. Also, check that the information provided is being written accurately because incomplete documentation might result in your goods being seized by the customs. Inaccurate documentation will arise to additional shipping charges if the shipping company returns your goods so you need to be careful in your documentation.
Printing the shipping labels: When shipping your goods, you need to print the labels for your shipping and attach it to your goods. The address must be accurate and clear for proper identification and inspection by the customs. Make sure that the complete shipping documents are found on your goods.
Extensive and right documentation is required by the customs before clearing your goods to avoid seizure or delays. These procedures are also applicable to shipping to the Philippines (ส่ง ของ ไป ฟิลิปปินส์, which is the term in Thai) because they are both located south-east of Asia. However, to ensure that your goods don’t get seized in customs, it is necessary that you work with a logistics provider that knows all about the customs formalities in Singapore.
