You´re sending a bike or a car?
I think at least a few years ago that Dili-Darwin shipping route (Perkins) was actually Singapore-Dili-Darwin, so that could be worth checking out?
Getting your foreign vehicle to Singapore doesn´t really make sense for just getting to ride around there, as importing there is a bit of a pain, but for an easy shipping, maybe it´s worth it. If not, then I´d find out about shipping by sea from Port Klang, Malaysia.
If it´s a bike, I´d also ask the freight agents about Malaysian Airlines (MASKargo), as they seem to have competitive pricing on airfreight. I once sent my bike from Chennai to Bangkok via Kuala Lumpur with them, and they did the job really fine (it cost me about 600 euros total for a DL650 on an open crate, January -08).
