Duration of Shipping from Singapore to Germany
The time it takes to get your goods delivered depends heavily on the type of shipping used. The most common types are air and sea freight.
Air freight refers to the transportation of goods via air carriers, and is a popular method of shipping for those who require fast delivery times. Shipping from Singapore to Germany via air freight will require approximately 2 to 5 days.
However, the final duration may depend on various factors, such as cargo volume and the point of origin and destination. It is also worth noting that while air freight is faster than sea freight, it is usually more expensive.
Sea freight is a reliable method of transporting goods from one port to another using ships. While sea freight takes longer than air freight, it is a more economical option for transporting goods in bulk. This method of shipping takes approximately 2 weeks to a month to arrive.
If your shipment is not large enough to fill a container, LCL (Less than Container Load) is a good option to consider. On the other hand, FCL (Full Container Load) will give you exclusive use of the container, which is great for larger quantities of goods.
