“DHL Express has been investing significantly in its international network to meet the highest expectations and to offer an even better service to customers globally,” said DHL Express UK CEO Ian Wilson. “Particularly in the last few weeks and months, we focused on investing in hub expansions and new gateways in many markets and thereby boosted our shipment processing capacities per hour and reduced our transit times. We are always working on upgrading our regional and intercontinental air fleets, we are opening new facilities with automated sorting technologies and introducing innovative e-commerce service solutions for our customers worldwide.

“At DHL Express, we will also carry on doing everything we can to ensure the highest security and sustainability standards are in place for our network, complying with the requirements of our customers, partners and transport authorities.”

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.
