How DHL Express Can Help you with your clinical trial logistics?

If you think that your business requires DHL Express’ WMX capabilities, you should inform your account manager. Before granting the proper authorisation, we have to verify your eligibility for the service. We must ensure you are in-compliance with dangerous goods (DG) standards for international transportation.

Most businesses that require the WMX service deal with sensitive contents that fall under dangerous goods (DG) classifications. DHL Express will send our in-house DG team to evaluate your premises prior to enabling the service.

WMX Approved Shippers

We understand that medical or pharmaceutical contents must be handled with priority and care, so once your account is approved we will customise a comprehensive logistics solution to ensure that your shipments are well taken care of.

A tailored service, customisable to your needs.


1. How do I pack medical devices and medicines before shipping?

Packing medical devices and medicines properly before shipping internationally is vital in order to guarantee safe delivery of the items. The very first step is to secure the item within corrugated cardboard or plastic boxes, depending on the type of medicine or device. Then, ensure that you provide sufficient padding around the object inside the box. Consider using packing material such as styrofoam peanuts, bubble wrap or other suitable materials for added protection to provide cushioning during transit. With these steps taken, your item will be packed safely for swift courier service.

2. Can you ship prescription drugs through DHL Express internationally?

Yes, as long as you are a WMX Approved shipper. Before your business can gain access to this service, DHL Express will send a team of professionals to visit your premises in Singapore and perform a comprehensive evaluation to make sure that all safety regulations are met. Upon confirmation, you can start using WMX for prompt courier delivery of medical devices and other contents.
