Hi there,
the costs would depend on where you are buying from and the volume and weight of the cargo. Also the term of your purchase, whether FOB or Ex factory? if your supplier is arranging the LCL to port, you would need to ask them to advise on the arrival charges. if you could provide the shipment volume and weight and specify the purchase terms we could give you a quote.

Duty 5% depends on the origin of the goods and what the goods are made of.
GST is 10% of CIF value(cost+insurance+freight)+ duty
Insurance you can google and find insurance brokers to quote.

Hope this helps.
