Step-by-step guide to ordering supplies from DHL Express

Step 1: Visit MyDHL+

First, visit MyDHL+ and navigate to the Order Supplies page. From there, take a look at the type of packaging you need, such as boxes, envelopes, or flyers. We carry a variety of packing materials in different sizes and dimensions to suit your specific shipping requirements.

Step 2: Choose packing materials

Next, select the packing materials that are best suited for your shipment. As a golden rule in choosing the perfect packaging, always ensure that your item fits securely and snugly in the packing boxes or envelopes so that they will not be moving around excessively during shipping.

For example, brittle items like glassware or ceramic may not be able to withstand the impact of collisions thus, ensuring that your items are fitted nicely into their cardboard or carton packing boxes helps prevent accidental damage to your packages during transit. This can also help save unnecessary costs associated with returned goods from your customers.

You should also make your decisions based on the maximum weight and dimensions of the items or goods you are shipping so that the packaging can provide ample protection.
