Lower import costs, faster shipping

Singapore’s harbour retains its free-trade status and offers smooth customs as part of the FTZ, and its proximity to manufacturing hubs in Asia offers a range of benefits for cross-border e-commerce retailers:

  • Minimise the logistics cost of warehouse rental and workforce hire
  • Some Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sellers can avoid VAT/GST outlay for goods in transit
  • Major links to India, China and beyond
  • Potential to reduce duties and taxes by importing goods manufactured in Asia through the Free Trade Zone
  • No GST must be paid to import your goods into the FTZ in Singapore for warehousing and fulfilment for re-export
  • Possible tax and duty exemption when sending orders below GST duty threshold (dependent on destination country)
