SingPost and Speedpost Delivery Rates Guide – New Prices From 15 Oct 2020

Singapore Post Limited, more commonly known as Singpost, is Singapore’s national postal service. The company has been delivering everything from our grandparents’ love letters to our monthly utility bills and more recently, online shopping for the past 160 years and counting.

Singpost has always been one of the most affordable postage options available, and now, they’ve gone ahead to revise their postage rates even lower. This news comes just in time for the holiday season – so if you’ve already begun prepping those Christmas gifts and cards for your loved ones, keep reading.

Here’s are the latest postage prices for Singpost and their courier arm, Speedpost (with effect 15 October 2020). 

Revised Singpost postage rates (local)

 

WeightBasic, untracked packageTracked package
Before 15 OctAfter 15 OctBefore 15 OctAfter 15 Oct
Up to 100g$0.90$1.50$3.20$3.00
Up to 250g$1.40$1.50$3.20$3.00
Up to 500g$1.80$1.50$3.80$3.00
Up to 1kg$2.70$1.50$4.20$3.00
Up to 2kg$3.50$1.50$4.80$3.00

 

Note: For parcels not exceeding 229mm by 324mm by 65mm and 2kg.

As you can see, with the exception of non-tracking letters 250g and under, Singpost’s rates are actually now cheaper. The basic normal mail (no tracking) goes for a flat rate of $1.50, whereas the tracked packages go for $3 flat. This is especially good news for online shoppers and sellers (Carousell, anyone?) who often opt for registered postage which previously cost $3.20 to $4.80.

If you want to buy postage-paid packaging, it’ll be $2 for the basic polymailer, $3.20 for tracked smartpac (mini/lite) and $3.80 for tracked smartpac (box). The new rates are also cheaper than before. The basic poly mailers used to go up to $2.90, while smartpacs used to be $3.20 to $4.70.

Revised Speedpost delivery rates (local)

 

Speedpost’s next-day delivery pricing structure will also see some changes:

 

WeightSpeedpost Standard – tracked parcel, next-day delivery

Up to 2kg$10.00$6.00
Up to 5kg$10.50$6.00

Up to 15kg$12.50$6.00
Up to 20kg$13.50$6.00
Up to 30kg$16.00$6.00

 

Speedpost Economy, which delivers in two working days, will be discontinued from 15 October onwards. Almost replacing it is the Speedpost Standard, which used to be $10 to $16, but is now a flat rate of $6. For Speedpost Express, which delivers in two hours, there is no change ($15 to $25).

Because there were some changes to how they group the countries and the weight-steps, it’s hard to do a before-and-after comparison.

Here are the revised rates, effective 15 Oct 2020:
