Duration of Shipping from Singapore to Malaysia
The shipping time is mainly determined by the type of shipping used. Goods are typically delivered from Singapore to Malaysia via trucking, though air and sea freight are sometimes used too.
This is the most common method used for door-to-door deliveries from Singapore to Malaysia. At times, cargo may be shipped across the border via air or sea freight first, followed by trucking for last-mile delivery.
Trucking is a quick method for transporting parcels, pallets or bulky items. Door-to-door shipping from Singapore to Malaysia will take about 1 to 5 days via trucking. However, road congestion may cause a delay in the shipping time.
Air freight refers to the transportation of a shipment via an air carrier. Shipping from Singapore to Malaysia via air freight will require approximately 1 to 5 days. Transit times may vary based on factors like the size and quantity of cargo, and the pick-up and drop-off destinations.
Do note that while air freight is faster than sea freight, it usually comes with higher costs.
Sea freight is the process of transporting your goods in containers or other large cargo carriers from one port to another using ships and vessels. If your goods do not fill an entire container, LCL (Less than Container Load) is a suitable option. In contrast, FCL (Full Container Load) is used for larger shipments that require the exclusive use of a container.
Shipping goods from Singapore to Malaysia via sea freight will take approximately 1 to 2 weeks. The transit time for sea freight is longer compared to other modes of transportation, such as air freight, but it is a more economical option for shipping large volumes of cargo.
