Delivery of Valuable Shipments
At DHL we do our best for a safe on-time delivery of your shipments. That is why proper packaging with appropriate materials is so important.
If you’re going to send a valuable shipment, please check it against the list of restricted and prohibited commodities. You can find the list here.
When packing your shipment, keep in mind that it will be carried within express delivery network. International express shipments require a more severe compliance with packaging standards than those carried by other ways of transportation as shipments are processed within the network of conveyable belts, airplanes and employees.
Please see below our guidelines on sending valuable shipments within DHL Express network:
Step 1 - Assess
- Consider the weight & fragility of shipment contents;
- Check the value of content being shipped as you might want to opt for Shipment Insurance service;
- Take into the account packing requirements prescribed by transportation regulations.
Should you have any questions or require any additional information on shipping your package, you can always contact our local Customer Service team.
