Singapore Post tracking

Singapore Post aims to be a global leader in the eCommerce business. They believe that the trust of the customers is the way to achieve. In doing so, they need to work as a team and execute services at a top tier level.

What is Singapore Post?

Singapore Post, sometimes called "SingPost", is a postal service, that provides local and international delivery options. Singapore Post is a private limited company and therefore is not owned by the government. The postal company has existed for over 160 years and is a trusted postal service both internationally, but also, especially within Singapore.

It is the country's longest-running postal service, and from its humble beginnings, it now boasts over 50 post offices worldwide and nearly 10,000 post boxes, with that number growing year on year.

Is Singapore Post a reliable parcel service?

Singapore Post is Singapore's designated Public Postal Licensee and given that it is the longest-running postal service in the country, there has been a strong customer-business relationship built over the period of its existence. Therefore, it is widely trusted. Furthermore, its growth since its founding has meant that it has cemented a strong delivery network and its expansion to international operations has further demonstrated its apt capability to deliver parcels safely and securely.

The Singapore Post has also continued to develop particularly its service quality with improvements in both its operational capacity but also by shortening its delivery times through new fast shipment options.

In 1992, Singapore Post was granted a new license in accordance with the Telecommunications Act. With this license, Singapore Post was allowed to expand its postal services significantly, leading to the worldwide presence the company enjoys today.

How long will Singapore Post take to deliver my package?

Singapore Post delivery services boast a quick turn-around and reliable service, however, the speediness of the delivery will depend on which service is chosen and where in the world the parcel will be shipped.If a buyer or seller wants to ship with Singapore Post domestically, there are three types of delivery services on offer.

Types of Delivery Services


  • Speedpost economy: This option will see your parcel arrive within 2 working days
  • Speedpost standard: This option will see your parcel arrive within 1 working day
  • Speedpost express: This option will see your parcel arrive within 2 hours


If you want to use Singapore Post to ship your item internationally, you will have 4 different options.

  • Speedpost economy: This option will see your parcel arrive within 21-35 working days
  • Speedpost standard: This option will see your parcel arrive within 5-14 working days
  • Speedpost priority: This option will see your parcel arrive within 2-8 working days
  • Speedpost express: This option will see your parcel arrive within 1-3 working days

In essence, Singapore Post shipping delivery times depend on where you want your package to go. If you need your Singapore Post parcel to arrive in a short time, you can opt for fast delivery options, but either the buyer or the seller of the order will have to pay for the extra costs involved.

Why is my Singapore Post tracking not updating?

When the tracking is not being updated, there could be several reasons why it's being like that. Sometimes, it may take around a few hours or a few days before the parcel is processed. In this case, try entering your tracking number again after a few hours.

Another reason could be that the tracking number was miswritten. Double-check for any mistyped number or letter. You could also ask the sender to send the tracking number again just in case they have mistyped something on the tracking number.

If your Singapore Post is still not being tracked, it is recommended to call the post office to resolve this issue.

How can I identify my Singapore Post tracking number to use on Ship24?

How fast can the Singapore Post deliver parcels?

The speed at which your Singapore Post package will arrive at its destination depends on one of or a combination of the following:

  • Size and shape of your package - The size of a parcel shipped with Singapore post will often determine by which method it is shipped. Larger items will sometimes be unable to travel via the quickest route (such as by air). Smaller parcels that can be transported on aircraft will usually be delivered the fastest.
  • The overall weight of your package: The weight of a package can also affect the transportation method used, with heavier parcels likely to be shipped on land or via sea, which will mean extended delivery times.
  • Final destination: Destinations that are in more remote spots with less courier coverage will face longer delivery times in most cases. It is always best to check with the Singapore Post or whichever courier you are using to make sure they deliver to the area first, and what possible delays there could be if you need the delivery within a certain timeframe.
  • Holidays - Christmas and Chinese New Year are holiday periods that are celebrated worldwide and therefore can cause delays in shipping. Equally, sales in certain countries which result in a higher than the normal surge in shipping demand (for instance, Black Friday sales) may also result in delays.
  • Freak accidents - Adverse weather conditions, customs processing delays, roadblocks or civil unrest within certain countries, plus a number of other unforeseen circumstances could also delay deliveries.

Although these reasons, especially the latter, are hard to predict, the best way to keep up to date on the location and status of your Singapore Post parcel is with the Ship24 tracking app. Ship24 gives you real-time updates on your parcel so if in the unfortunate circumstance that your parcel does become stuck (for instance at customs) Ship24 can let you know.

Not only is the service free, but you can use it as many times as you want, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Although you can't control change the weather, you can at least keep fully informed when it comes to your package!

Which site can I track my Singapore Parcel with?

People are bored of having to enter tracking numbers, shipment references and final destinations on numerous websites to get the latest on their parcels, often unaware if they need to enter their original tracking numbers or new variations that can sometimes arise from their package changing hands or crossing borders.

Although users can access some tracking information via the courier website, many are opting to go to dedicated shipment tracking websites which track multiple couriers and only require the tracking number.

Ship24 is one such service that, due to its tracking number auto-detection system, can instantly identify which courier your parcel is with and find the information on it you need accordingly. Instantly, and free of charge, access the current location and status of your parcel with just one click.
