Your parcels will be weighed per item when they arrival at the logistics centre in China.
Your consolidated order will be repacked and remeasured before shipping to Singapore. Extra spaces and gaps between each parcel will be occupied.
We will compare the weight taken before and after the repackaging, and charge according to the higher measurement.
The chargeable weight of the consolidated order will be multiplied by 1.1 X to account for the extra spaces occupied between each parcel.
Should you change your preferred shipping method after the items have been purchased, a charge of $2.00 will be applicable.
According to the international shipping practice, the volumetric weight (the amount of space taken up by the parcel during shipment) is calculated and compared with the actual weight of the parcel. The higher weight would be used to calculate shipping cost. This will be done regardless of the chosen shipping method; air or sea.
This is how volumetric weight is calculated:
Volume Weight (kg) For Air Shipments
= Length (cm) * Width (cm) * Height (cm) / 5000
Volume Weight (kg) For Sea Shipments
= Length (cm) * Width (cm) * Height (cm) / 6000
