So then Dell will ship it out again from the US once it has arrive in Singapore???
What? You're back-to-front and inside-out here. The boxing stage commences pretty much at the end of production, it includes obviously boxing it up, and then also shipping it from Singapore to its destination (The Singapore facility supports North America as well as South East Asia and the Pacific... there is also one in Ireland that supports Europe and I think there's one more someplace else...).
Once it arrive at its destination country it must pass customs, and then it is processed and put into the ands of local despatch which get it too your door.
