Pack it right for the Express journey

At DHL, we do everything we can to ensure your packages are always delivered on time and in perfect condition. To reach their destinations, parcels can travel many thousands of miles through the sophisticated and wide-ranging DHL global network.

Multi-Piece Shipments

When shipping multiple express packages under one waybill, affix the original waybill and shipment paperwork to one package. Then affix copies of the waybill to the other packages. Label each box with the total number of boxes in the shipment, such as “1 of 3”, “2 of 3” or “3 of 3”.

DHL Shipping Supplies

DHL encourages the use of proper packaging supplies and provides them free of charge to ensure that our account holders have the protection their commodity deserves. When reviewing the dimensions of both your commodities and the supplies used to pack them, make sure you leave plenty of room for additional supportive packing materials.

We make it quick and easy for you to order supplies using your account number. We provide you with dimensions, pictures and descriptions of each package type, so all you have to do is select the desired sizes and the quantities needed.

DHL will send a confirmation email to let you know when your local courier will deliver supplies to your preferred location.
