Door to Door Delivery Malaysia to Singapore

Door to door delivery is the transportation of goods from the seller’s warehouse, right to the customer’s doorstep. 

Trucking is the most common method used for Malaysia-Singapore door to door deliveries. At times, air and sea freight may be used to get items across the border first, followed by trucking to complete the delivery.

Both businesses and consumers can benefit from trucking services when shipping items door to door from Malaysia to Singapore.

Advantages of Cross Border Door to Door Delivery via Trucking

Cheaper Option for Shorter Distances

Cross border door to door shipping via trucking is generally cheaper than sea and air freight, especially for shorter distances and smaller shipment loads. 

This is because the cost of fuel and vehicle maintenance for trucking is lower. It is also partly because freight is shipped directly, incurring no additional warehousing costs.

 Fast and Fuss-free

As goods are shipped directly from door to door, extra steps like ship to truck transfers and storage are cut out, making delivery quicker. With trucking, there is also a larger fleet of vehicles that companies utilise, mitigating any scheduling delays.

Road freight also requires less paperwork than air and sea freight, speeding up customs clearance processes.

Goods Are Easily Tracked

With GPS and fleet management softwares, your shipment can be easily and more accurately tracked as it makes its way across the border.

Disadvantages of Cross Border Door to Door Delivery via Trucking

Capacity and Size Restrictions

Trucks are much smaller compared to planes and ships, making them less ideal for the transportation of large quantities and sizes of cargo. A larger bulk shipment would require multiple trucks for transport, driving up total costs.

Traffic Restrictions

Road freight is subject to delays from traffic jams or road accidents. This is manageable for shipment over short distances. However, the speed of shipment may be greatly affected for larger distances.

Process of Door to Door Delivery From Malaysia to Singapore

Once you have arranged for door to door delivery, either through a freight forwarding company, courier or carrier service, here are the steps that will take place.

1. Pick Up

The forwarding service contracts a trucking company or sends its own truck to your selected pick up address (e.g. your factory or warehouse). Freight is loaded onto the vehicle.

2. Freight Consolidation

If you have opted for less-than-truckload (LTL) shipment, your goods will be transported to a facility for consolidation. Here, your goods will be loaded onto a truck with other freight to optimise space.

3. Customs Clearance

The truck will then head to border customs, where it will be inspected by Malaysia and Singapore customs officials. 

They will assess the prepared shipping documentation, cargo and tax and duties payments. Once cleared, the truck will continue its journey into Singapore.

4. Freight Deconsolidation

LTL freight will be brought to a sorting facility to be deconsolidated. Your goods will then be loaded onto another truck for dispatch.

5. Last Mile Delivery

Full truckload (FTL) shipments and deconsolidated LTL freight will then make its way to its final destination. 

For businesses, this may be your store in Singapore or your customer’s address, or straight to your doorstep for private deliveries.
