Why is DHL changing my standard shipping rates?
To ensure that we continue to provide you with the industry’s highest-quality international services, DHL Express adjusts its prices annually – taking into consideration inflation and currency dynamics such as administrative costs related to regulatory and security measures. This helps us to continue providing best-in-class air express services to and from the more than 220 countries and territories that we serve. The adjustment also allows the company to further invest in its infrastructure network and strengthen the resilience against crises and provide the needed capacity growth due to rising customer demands.
