    DHL has been pivotal in helping us grow our eCommerce site. The speed of delivery that DHL offers to the US has been huge to remove borders and allow us to compete with companies on the world stage. We really liked DHL’s account management style and onboarding process – all throughout we felt supported and DHL has been so easy to deal with. The web shipping tool integrates really well with our platform and DHL offers multiple pick-ups a day which helps with the speed of our delivery. We can get products to customers in Australia the next day, and internationally in 1-2day lead-time.

    We work with DHL Express as the delivery times are so fast. Someone in California can order a dress on a Sunday night and have it three or four days later – often it’s faster coming from Sydney than parcels going to them from New York, which is pretty cool.
At DHL, we offer solutions to fit the needs of small and medium sized customers and with our reputation for excellence in customer service, you can always trust we’ll be the perfect partner for your business.
