International luggage shipping tips?

Now that we understand our shipping category, the next step is figuring out how to pack your luggage securely and what paperwork is needed. Deciding on the best way to do so involves considering the following factors:

Hard plastic & metal cases are most suited to Express transport and are easily stacked & handled without risk of damage.

If there are fragile items in your luggage, you should wrap them individually with a protective wrap and ensure that all empty spaces in the luggage are filled with fillers. To ensure that your baggage is handled with extra care, affix a "fragile" label on the outside of your shipping container.

Luggage weighing more than 75 lbs. should use a pallet, crate or a made-to-measure box that is sufficiently sturdy. Pieces weighing above 150 lbs., require a fork-movable crate or loading your luggage onto a pallet, as handling equipment is often required to move heavy weights.

  • Avoid using thin "shell" suitcases
  • Tape down the handle & avoid suitcases with exposed non-recessed wheels and wrap suitcase with shrink-wrap or box
  • Hard reinforced plastic or metal cases offering adequate protection for fragile sporting & musical equipment
  • Tape down clasps to avoid accidental opening or shrink wrap entire case
  • Non-Rigid Soft luggage (duffle bag) offers no protection to contents of bag
  • We have created an easy-to-understand glossary of logistics terminology to help you navigate the jargon in international shipping.
  • Do not use sticky pouches for the shipping labels and documents, place your label and documents into a tie-on holder
  • Ensure name/address is on both inside and outside of luggage
  • We do not recommend the use of locks as luggage may need to be inspected for regulatory or security purposes
  • If using a lock, please be aware this may be removed for Security or Regulatory inspections and not returned

Box the bag in one of the standard boxes available at your DHL Service Point. Find a location.

Each country has its parcel labelling requirements. That's why it's essential to research the most recent customs regulations to ensure that your luggage meets the shipping requirements.

Example: For entry into the United States a US Customs and Border Protection Form 3299 - Declaration of Free Entry of Unaccompanied Articles should be completed prior to the importation of used personal effects over $200 USD. Shipping to Mexico may require the shipper to provide documentation such as a passport, airline ticket or boarding pass. Learn more about changes to the EU's customs security and safety program (ICS2).
