I will discuss the price, delivery time, and reliability of each service so that you can make an informed decision about which one is best for you.

Let’s get started!

DTDC – Express Non Documents (Cheapest)

DTDC is a well-known courier company in India. The good news is that the price isn’t too high.

They are the cheapest option that I can find for sending a parcel from Singapore to India.

For a 1kg package with the dimensions of 300 x 200 x 50mm, they charge $22! Compare this to other leading logistic companies (“Ahem” UPS $90+).

However, there is a catch.

The estimated delivery time is longer. It takes 6 to 12 days.

This service is for you if you trust the company and are willing to take a risk.

If not, they do quote $55 for using DHL.

For that, you will have to look at other companies on this list.

Qxpress – Qdelivery Oversea (Best Value)

Do you know Qxpress does ship to India at a reasonable price? (I bet you don’t!)

You’re mistaken if you believe that only Qoo10’s eCommerce store is served.

They serve senders (like you and me) and Internet sites that don’t operate in the Qoo10 marketplace.

Based on a 1kg weight and dimensions of 300 x 200 x 50mm,

They charge $27 for delivery to the majority of India’s main cities. This pricing includes insurance covering up to $300.

The delivery time is estimated to be between 4 and 10 days.

With an additional a few dollars, you get a piece of mind.

The problem is that they may open your package and re-wrap it on their own. So, if you’re concerned about privacy, this could be a problem.

SingPost – International SpeedPost Priority (Fastest)

SingPost is the most expensive option on this list, but they are also the fastest.

For a weight of up to 1kg, it would cost you $62. The delivery time for this service is only between 2 to 6 days!

This makes it the best option if you need your package delivered urgently.

The service also includes insurance.

So, if you have something valuable or irreplaceable that you need to send urgently, this is the best option for you.

However, keep in mind that their prices are almost double that of other companies on this list.


Based on the information above, it is clear that DTDC is the cheapest option for sending a package from Singapore to India. If you are willing to take a risk and don’t mind a longer delivery time, this company is good for you.

SingPost is the best option if you need your package delivered quickly. Although their prices are almost double that of other companies, their delivery time is much faster.

Qxpress is the best choice for getting your package delivered quickly at a good price. The delivery time is only 4 to 10 days, and the price is reasonable.
