if volumetric weight is 3kg (actual volmetric 4.5kg), how much shipping for borderlinx, cgw and vpost. Is there cgw promo/voucher code to use? Is it payment by POSB credit card will upgrade to Upgrade Express?
volumetric weight got real and fake one meh. only heard of actual weight and volumetric weight.

sarcasm aside, i have no idea as i only used cgw before. and yup. just key in your POSB/DBS cc details and after they verify, the upgrade and 10% off will be calculated immediately.

Seems like vPost has a new website.

I checked out the FAQ on consolidation and there is no mention of any limits on the amount of packages. So is it ok to wait until several packages arrive to consolidate them?

There is never a limit on the amount of packages; you are free to consolidate as many as you like within a 30-day period.

Do note that there are only 21 days of free storage though, after which SGD 1.5 will be levied for every excessive day.

Dunno if it's been posted yet, but Borderlinx has 25% off the shipping charge now (only the shipping charge before fuel surcharge, GST etc). Promo code is SALE25

Any code for comgateway? I used cgw address wrongly... Sianz...

I tried to use POSB everyday card but it wont accept as it is a MC n cgw only accept visa.

I used dbs visa, but no discount appear at all --- the next screen will be make payment. Any help plz? Thanks.

decided to jump boat to CGW/borderlinx.
today missed 9 parcels from vpost and they die die refused to redeliver until i pay the redelivery fee: minimum of $10 per parcel or go down to the nearest post office to collect

I don't have car/maid leh wtf. how to carry 9 parcels?
even take taxi also must carry the parcels to the taxi stand.

The most stupidest thing is they cannot advice on the actual redelivery cost, so I must go down to the post office to PAY for the redelivery cost. WTF to the max. I hope they will see losses in the subsequent quarters.

With express, you can get the AWB to track the next biz day. With std, it can take >2 days.

The difference with express and standard is express takes about 3-4 working days while standard take 5-8 working days. The charges for express is also higher. For mine express is USD5 more. So saved 5 bucks.
