  6. Anyone can advise how to define shipping charges for online shopping? if i want to sell something online but how do i tell buyer how much to pay for freight? assuming im selling small items, i understand registered local mail flat rate is $2.50 but what if customer buy more and how do I charge them accordingly? any mechanism to calculate? i intend to setup online website selling stuff. i tot of using paypal to link the transaction but the problem lies with deciding how much to charge on shipping. Do you think if I sell in gmarket will be better off? I simply link my website w catalog directly to gmarket? not only can attract my buyers who visit my website, i can also sell to gmarket buyers who happen to browse for items?
  7. A 193-metre-long container ship ‘Hansa Constitution’ sailing under German flag ran aground on 6th April afternoon by the University of Hong Kong sports ground in Pok Fu Lam. According to residents in the neighborhood, the captain of the ship dropped the anchor to slow down the vessel, as it came to a halt just a few feet away from the promenade, which is popular with joggers. The ship was on its way to Shenzhen when it is believed to have been blown off course by monsoon winds after engine failure. Two diving support vessels as well as two fireboats were deployed for the rescue. The ship was eventually towed away from the shore. There were no reports of hull breach, injuries, or causalities aboard the ship. Watch the video below:

  13. Hi all, An expat friend is considering to ship over his car in UK to Singapore. Any recommendations for a reliable freight forwarding and shipping agent? Thanks.
  14. Hi guys I shipped 4 boxes of car rims from the US. They arrived on a ship here ytd. It was a very complicated process involving the shipper passing the item to the forwarding company which would then consolidate items to be shipped to singapore into one container. Once the shipping company takes over from the forwarding company it would then be up to the agent here in singapore to handle the administration. This method albeit complex, cost the least. Still $600 or so. The goods were due to be picked up by me at the port. So I waited for ~1 month for the ship to arrive. I sent the shipping company the bill of lading and invoice had the items declared as a gift around 3 weeks before the arrival of the goods. The CRO assured me that she would expedite the process and that they could provide customs brokering service as well as delivery for a fee. However, today when i called up the shipping agent they forwarded me the notice of arrival. Turns out agent fees, wharfing and DO fees were not included and they came up to $125. This was not mentioned to me or the shipper by the forwarding company OR the agent here despite me contacting them beforehand to send them the B/L and invoice 3 weeks beforehand. I checked with my friend and he said he wasnt informed. I checked with the agent and they said the $600 i paid was only the ORIGIN FEES So i told the CRO no problem I dont mind paying this amount even THOUGH it was not included in the $600 i already paid for which was told to me as the nett figure. That one im willing to absorb. They then sent me the admin FEEs for processing customs. This one added up to ANOTHER $200 or so. This one was expensive but not unexpected. The forwarding company had told me that I had to pay for customs clearance even if I had declared it as a gift. The agent then chut stunt again say the invoice declaring the rims as a gift doesnt work. That i have to pay GST. This one i also dont mind paying BUT KNNCCB NOW THEN THEY TELL ME AFTER THE RIMS ARRIVE. THEN THEY CHARGE ME FOR 1. FORKLIFTING THE RIMS TO THE WAREHOUSE $75 2. MANPOWER $50 3. WAREHOUSE STORAGE 4. REMOVAL OF RIMS How can they f--king charge me for bringing my rims to the warehouse when it was supposed to be a port pickup They did not even inform me or ask my permission to send it to the warehouse. Even if they claim its not processed by customs yet and i cant collect my good, its their fault why didnt they tell me declaration as a gift doesnt work till today. and charge me for storage and movement BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN DELAY. WHY DIDNT THEY SETTLE ALL THE CUSTOMS ADMIN WITH ME BEFOREHAND BEFORE THE GOODS ARRIVED? I am waiting for my friend to rewrite the invoice. And see what the company can do about this. Im not a calculative person. I dont mind paying $100-200 more even though it was not included in the original deal. BUT $540+ IS AS MUCH AS THE MONEY IT TAKES TO SHIP THE STUFF FROM AMERICA. WTF If they had informed me earlier then I wouldve have used air freight which would have saved me 3 weeks +++ and lots of opportunity costs in my sale of old rims for just abit more $$$ They did not have the decency to inform me or the shipper despite me contacting them 3 weeks beforehand and now they want to charge me for their negligence? They still had the cheek to tell me its their "STANDARD" CHARGES. BS Can i go to the small claims tribunal if they play punk? Its a big shipping agent. I have all the proof and evidence with me. Can any bros in the shipping industry advise?

    Q: Shipping food to US

    I would like to ship sealed 'wet' food (e.g. japanese curry sauce in sealed packets from supermarkets) over to US to a personal friend for personal consumption, but what are the procedures in doing so? Is it even doable? I've been googling but to no avail. So far what Ive found out is that it seems that I'm required to send a prior notice to FDA. But what's next? Do I need some sort of approval, probably printed and affixed to the package before I mail it over? Can anyone help me out? Many thanks!

    Need advise on shipping to overseas

    Hi all, I intend to sell some stuffs to USA and need some advise. Which courier service is the best in terms of speed and handling of item? I've checked UPS, DHL, Fedex and Singpost and Singpost has the best rates. Which of these provide insurance and tracking service for both sender and receiver? What fees do I need to pay if I'm sending to USA? eg. tax/duties If item is lost in transit, which party has to process the insurance? What are the benefits for declaring item as "gift"? Heard from friend that this will be tax exempted, but not sure why. I read briefly that UPS has tied up with eBay. If I list the items on eBay, will they automatically provide the buyer with the shipping fees and such? Thanks for advise and clarification
