DHL announce annual price increase to fuel further investment

DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, has announced its annual general average price increase for its Time Definite International, Time Definite Domestic and Day Definite International products, effective January 1, 2018.

Ian Wilson, CEO, DHL Express UK, said:

“We have announced further investments in modernising our aviation fleet, introducing more green vehicles for inner city delivery and enhancing our ground infrastructure around the world. We have also deployed new solutions – such as On Demand Delivery and Parcel Lockers – to make the delivery process even more convenient for retailers and their customers in the dynamically growing e-commerce segment. Our annual price increase ensures that we can make the investments needed to meet our customers’ expectations and to continue to make them successful over the long-term.”

DHL Express adjusts its prices annually, taking into account inflation, currency dynamics and other rising costs, such as expenses related to compliance with enhanced security regulations, in each of the more than 220 countries and territories that it serves. Price adjustments will vary from country to country, depending on local conditions, and will apply to all customers where contracts allow.
