DHL Express is raising its prices by an average 4.9% effective January 1, 2020.
Weight, volume and destination could put the parcel or document at a higher rate. It applies to DHL Express consignments sent within a country and internationally, but not the UK (or other countries’) domestic parcel business.
“DHL Express has been investing significantly in its international network to meet highest expectations and to offer an even better service to customers globally,” explains Markus Reckling, Managing Director DHL Express Germany.
“Our aim is to deliver continuous improvement in quality to meet our customers’ needs even more. The annual price adjustment allows us to further strengthen our infrastructure, ensuring best-in-class customer solutions by using innovative technologies and individual delivery processes. These investments boost our shipment processing capacities per hour and reduce our transit times. We are always working on upgrading our regional and intercontinental air fleets, we are opening new facilities with automated sorting technologies and introduce innovative e-commerce service solutions for our customers worldwide. At DHL Express, we will also carry on doing everything we can to assure the highest security and sustainability standards to comply with the requirements of our customers, partners and transport authorities.”
DHL Express operates in 220 countries and adjusts its prices annually.
