5. Delivery

5.1 SingPost will attempt to deliver the SmartPac Domestic box to the Recipient in the following order: -

(a) Delivery to the Recipient’s door-step at the Recipient’s address as stated by the Sender, but not necessarily to the named Recipient personally (“Doorstep Delivery”). The delivery note for each SmartPac Domestic box which is delivered to the Recipient’s door-step shall be signed by the Recipient or any person to whom the SmartPac Domestic box is handed over at the Recipient’s address.

(b) Delivery to the Recipient’s letterbox only after SingPost has attempted Doorstep Delivery without success (“Letterbox Delivery”). The delivery note for each SmartPac Domestic box which is delivered to Recipient’s letterbox will be signed by the postman.

(c) If the Recipient’s letterbox is full or of an older version of which the dimensions are too small to fit the SmartPac Domestic box, SingPost will slot a delivery advice into the Recipient’s letterbox. The Recipient shall use the delivery advice to arrange for a second delivery attempt to the Recipient’s address as stated on the delivery note, or to redirect the SmartPac Domestic box to any SingPost post office for the Recipient’s self-collection purpose. Alternatively, the Recipient may choose to self-collect the SmartPac Domestic box from the post office stated on the delivery advice. Redirection to an address other than the address stated in the delivery note or any other SingPost post office is available subject to payment of additional charges. The Recipient shall sign on the delivery note upon receiving the SmartPac Domestic box.

5.2 The SmartPac Domestic box shall be deemed to be delivered and SingPost’s obligations herein shall be deemed fully discharged: –

(a) upon successful Doorstep Delivery as described in Clause 5.1(a); or
(b) upon successful Letterbox Delivery as described in Clause 5.1(b); or
(c) upon self-collection as described in Clause 5.1(c); or
