Singapore Post (SingPost) has announced it is to simplify its parcel and package delivery rates, resulting in a drop in prices in most cases.
From 15th October, there will be a flat rate charged for its package (letterbox delivery) and parcel (doorstep delivery) for most of its domestic delivery options.
The rate changes come as the e-commerce boom has taken hold after the pandemic hit the island-state. International delivery rates will also be simplified and cheaper in most cases.
The rates will come into force just in time for the coming e-commerce peak season.
Mr Vincent Phang, CEO of Postal Services and Singapore, SingPost, said: “Following the introduction of our package delivery service in December last year, we have seen a strong take-up of both Tracked and Basic Package services, as they will allow a secured delivery service to the letterbox, so the recipient won’t have to stay at home to wait for their items to be delivered.
“As such, we have further streamlined our package and parcel delivery services to enhance our offerings for customers. This round of enhancements provides cost savings and improved services for the majority of our customers, as they send more packages and parcels than ever before. The revised pricing structure is also built with our customers in mind, so that they can easily understand the suite of services we offer and how much they cost.
“We are committed to keeping our postal service relevant in the e-commerce age to better serve the needs of our customers,” Mr Phang added.
