As per freight industry practice, the chargeable weight of a package is calculated based on Volumetric or Actual weight, whichever is higher.

Volumetric weight of a package is a calculation that reveals the density of a package and we use the below formula to derive the volumetric weight of a package

Volumetric weight = [ length(cm) x breadth(cm) x height(cm) ] / 5,000cm You can advise your merchant to ensure proper packaging or pack your purchase into a smallest possible box.

In addition, you can consolidate your shipping charges by paying multiple packages together. As such, only one single base charge is billed.

vPost will repack your package by minimising the height of the package, thus reducing the volumetric weight. The process of repacking will be placing the smaller package into one single box.

Example: Height of package being cut down


Please note that we are not able to remove or modify any part/content from its retail packaging when we repack.


– Removal of batteries from the retail packaging.

– Installation of batteries from the retail packaging.

This is to ensure not to have your original package contents being compromised

Here are some scenarios in which we will not repack:

  1. when the package contains leather products, e.g. handbags, purses, coats, etc.
  2. when the package contains restricted items, such as perfume, standalone batteries, fuels, etc.
  3. when the package is marked ‘FRAGILE’.
  4. when the package is obviously a gift, i.e. packed in a gift box, secured with ribbon and gift card, etc.

There are also packages which are specially packed to ensure breakable items are cushioned. As such packages would potentially be bulky, the difference between the actual weight and volumetric weight may be higher. We will take into account such instances and repack only when the safety of the package will not be compromised.

The decision to repack a package will be made at the discretion of vPost.

For shipments to Singapore, all declared values of goods, vCare and freight charges are converted to Singapore Dollars at the latest exchange rate as provided by Singapore Customs.

The Goods and Service Tax (GST) is calculated based on the CIF of all packages in an invoice.

Current GST rate is at 7% of the total CIF (Cost, vCare and Freight)

To estimate the GST applicable for your invoice, simple sum up the cost of your products with the shipping cost and vCare charges, if applicable, and multiply it by 7%.

GST Relief is granted for packages (excluding intoxicating liquors and tobacco products) imported via air freight that do not exceed S$400.

If the value exceeds S$400, the entire sum would be subjected to GST.

Please note that GST relief is not granted for goods imported by other transport modes e.g. sea freight and land
