Navigation and Content

DHL will keep operations across Portugal and Spain as seamless as possible given the strategic importance of our sector at these times, prioritising people’s health and safety.

Delivery Times

Lead times may be subject to change due to the current situation, although DHL eCommerce is taking all possible measures to reduce this impact. We continue to monitor the quality of our service daily and take the measures we consider necessary to achieve the best performance despite the current situation.

International Service

International service will continue to be carried out as the closing of the borders does not affect the transportation of goods. However, due to border controls we cannot guarantee standard delivery deadlines. At DHL eCommerce we will do our best to provide the best quality of service.

On the other hand, due to the mixed types of our collection points at European level (mail, stationery, petrol stations, etc), it is possible that some establishments may be required to close due to government restrictions being implemented in various countries in the network.

Hygiene and safety measures

At DHL eCommerce we have taken the WHO recommended hygiene and prevention measures to ensure the health of our people and customers. In addition, customers may sign on the shipping label using their own ballpoint pen, as an alternative to signing on the PDA.

Delivery Procedure

Given the risk of and spread, we have modified some of our delivery procedures to protect our distributors as well as merchandise recipients. In this way we have implemented two options for receiving shipments:

1. First Option:

  • The courier will make delivery by respecting the safe distance with the receiver, which will be at least two meters.
  • The receiver must sign the shipping label using their own pen
  • To serve as proof of delivery (POD), the courier captures the image of the signed label with your device’s camera (PDA)

2. Second option:

  • If the customer wants to avoid any proximity situation with the distributor (and therefore does not want to sign the label) the courier itself will sign on the PDA by the recipient of the merchandise upon request of the name and identification number.

DHL Points

Due to established restrictions on the operation of trade and people movement, our collection point network (DHL ServicePoints) may be restricted in some locations due to the closure or reduction of operating hours of some establishments.

In accordance with the hygiene and security recommendations, deliveries will be made by confirming the Customer’s identification document, avoiding physical contact, and without signature to prevent object sharing and minimize the risk of contamination.
