DHL eCommerce FAQs for Business Shippers

Whether you are already a customer or you are looking to learn more about shipping with us, here are some quick answers to your top questions.

Shipping With Us

What size shipments do you handle?

We generally ship smaller packages. However, the specific weights and sizes limitations vary based on where you are sending the shipment.  Check out our Domestic Shipping Services or International Shipping Services for specific sizes and weights.

Where can I ship with DHL eCommerce?

We service the U.S. and more than 220 countries and territories.

For international shipments, how are duties and taxes handled?

The duties and tax settlement depends on the destination country and on the shipping product you choose. For Parcel International Direct, duties and taxes are paid by the merchant. DHL eCommerce pays the duties and taxes and invoices back to the merchant. For our DHL Parcel International Standard and DHL Packet International, any applicable duties and taxes are collected at time of delivery.

Can I add Shipment Value Protection to my shipment?

Many of our products already include Shipment Value Protection up to a certain value. Check out our Domestic Shipping Services or International Shipping Services for more details.

Customer Web Portal

Do you have tools to manage shipments online?

Through the Customer Web Portal, customers can evaluate performance results, track parcels and analyze information about shipping costs to effectively manage shipping. In addition, recurring reports can be scheduled on a daily or weekly basis. Reports can be customized to include specific report elements important to your organization’s shipping objectives.

Where can I log in to the Customer Web Portal?

DHL eCommerce offers two Customer Web Portals. Registered customers can log in to the Americas Customer Web Portal and Asia Pacific Customer Web.
