Hi Pontiac,
Yes, I am planning on shipping June 18. Shipping time is approximately 6 weeks. I have about 10 cubic metres. A container is 30 and costs about $9-10,000 SGD. There is a small fee since we'll have 2 different deliveray addresses. Does this suit you? Are you still interested? Am I allowed to leave my email on here for you to contact me directly?

Hi mate, thought i'd give some fun facts about container volumes to help you out :

20FT - 33CBM, max payload 22.1 tons

40FT - 67.3CBM, may payload 27.397tons

40FT HC (beefed up 40FT) - 76CBM, may payload 29,600tons

Also there's an option to "purchase" container space on an exististing container, this is known as Less than Container Load (LCL), this can work out cheaper if you have 10CBM and less.
