At SDC International Shipping, our expert shipping coordinators will engage with you to understand the specifics of your shipment. Drawing from a variety of ocean freight options, we meticulously plan and secure the timings of your delivery to Indonesia.

Whether you require a Full Container Load (FCL) or Less than Container Load (LCL) for your household belongings, our dedicated team ensures that each shipment is handled with precision and care. Rest assured that your items will be in safe hands as we navigate the complexities of sea freight transportation to Indonesia.

Swift Household Shipping to Indonesia via Air Freight

When time is of the essence for your move to Indonesia from the USA, air freight emerges as the optimal choice for swift delivery.

Opting for air freight ensures that your household goods reach Indonesia in a remarkably short timeframe of 2-3 days, making it the ideal solution for those requiring expedited shipping. While air freight may come at a premium compared to sea freight, its speed and reliability make it a preferred option for sensitive cargo, such as fine art or pianos, that demand quick and secure transportation.

Despite the higher cost associated with air freight, our experienced logistics team at SDC International Shipping is dedicated to assisting you in selecting the most cost-effective air freight forwarding solution tailored to your specific needs. Whether you have a large or small volume of items to ship, rest assured that our team will work diligently to ensure a seamless and efficient air freight experience for your household move to Indonesia.

Essential Documents for Shipping Household Items to Indonesia 

When shipping household items to Indonesia from the USA, it’s essential to have the correct documentation in order to comply with Indonesian customs regulations. Here are the key documents required for a smooth shipping process:

  • Passport (original): Your valid passport is necessary for identification purposes.
  • Visa: A valid visa for entry into Indonesia.
  • Residence permit (KITAS card) valid for at least 12 months: This permit establishes your residency status in Indonesia.
  • Packing list (original) in English: A detailed inventory of your household items.
  • Bill of Lading (original and copy): A document issued by the carrier detailing the shipment.
  • Non-negotiable Bill of Lading: A copy of the Bill of Lading.
  • Surat Kuasa (Letter of Authorization to the destination agent): Authorizes the destination agent to handle your shipment.
  • Letter from Indonesian Embassy (for returning citizens): Confirms your residency status in Indonesia.
  • Diploma or school certificate (for returning students): Relevant documentation for students returning to Indonesia.
  • Letter of Assignment or reassignment by your employer (for returning citizens): Required for those returning due to employment reasons.

It’s important to note that Indonesia prohibits the shipping of cars and motor vehicles, as well as auto parts. Violating these customs regulations can lead to delays in clearance and additional charges.

Packing Household Items for Shipping to Indonesia

Main Shipping Ports in Indonesia

If your destination is Jakarta or any other spot on the Island of Java, your shipping container is likely to be routed to the bustling port of Tanjung Priok in Jakarta, a significant hub for shipping in Indonesia. Other ports that handle both household and commercial containers include Belawan, Makassar, and Sorong.

How Long Does It Take To Ship to Indonesia

The transit duration from the USA to Indonesia can vary depending on the chosen transit mode and shipping method. Typically, an ocean freight Full Container Load (FCL) shipment takes approximately 7-9 weeks for door-to-door service, while a Less than Container Load (LCL) shipment may require 9-11 weeks. If you opt for airfreight, although it offers rapid delivery, the total transit time, including customs clearance, is typically around two weeks.
