Tools such as live chat support, instant shipping updates and always-on social media touchpoints are just some of these examples.

2. myDHLi

myDHLi provides complete visibility and control over your shipments. Customers will be able to get quotations, arrange and track shipments, retrieve documents and access analytics under one cohesive portal. With this, you can utilise customised views and filters to analyse your logistics activities. On top of that, you will also be able to follow your shipments and share relevant information with your customers, colleagues and partners.

myDHLi is a strong tool for businesses to make data-driven decisions to improve the efficiency of their logistics operations.

3. DHL Same Day

According to an article by Parcel Monitor, the longer the shipping duration, the more negative customer reviews a business can get. In a world where every minute counts, offering your customers same-day delivery can give you a competitive advantage over the rest. However, a fast reaction time to new orders requires manpower and resources – someone to check the order, schedule a pickup and track the delivery. And these resources cost money. 

Through the DHL Same Day portal, businesses can easily log in to arrange for same-day delivery to their customers without having to fill up pesky forms each time. 

4. MySupplyChain

A tool is not truly exhaustive unless it can be integrated with third-party softwares to improve productivity, and MySupplyChain can do just that. As a one-stop-shop for integrated warehouse and transportation insights, this platform allows you to retrieve a near real-time view of inventory positions and warehouse level order statuses. In turn, you will be able to transform your supply chain operations analytics to give you a strong edge.

MySupplyChain will be a strong partner for businesses who want to reduce tracking time and increase efficiency across a wide spectrum of other tools. 

5. DHL Trade Automation Services

From calculating customs duty, import tax to finding the latest import and export regulations, our DHL Trade Automation Services does it all for you, and more. The free toolkit provides businesses with expert assistance to breeze through borders seamlessly and without surprises. There are also extra tools within the platform to help you with logistics operations along the way. 

As long as you are shipping products from one country to another, DHL Trade Automation Services is the best tool for your export activities.
