Important Information


Surcharge Update: Over Handled Piece

In order to maintain a consistently high level of service, DHL Express levies under given conditions a surcharge for Non-Standard shipments.

Effective April 1, 2015, single shipments may also trigger the Over Handled Piece surcharge, as well as one of the Over Weight and Over Sized Piece surcharges. A single shipment will not trigger both Over Weight and Over Sized Piece surcharges – only one of these two surcharges can apply per shipment.

For further information, including definitions and associated surcharges for these Non-Standard shipments go to Surcharges for Exceptional Activities.
