DHL Express announces annual price adjustments for 2021

DHL Express, the world’s leading international express service provider, announced a price increase today that will take effect on January 1, 2021. Further, the surcharge for Overweight Piece and Non-Stackable Pallet will be adjusted to AED 350 per piece and AED 720 per pallet.

This is to continuously ensure the resilience of its network and constantly maintain high service standards. “Supporting our customers in attaining their sales goals with personally tailored services according to the needs of their business is one of our main goals at DHL Express. To this end, we have been spending largely in our international network,” said Geoff Walsh, Country Manager, DHL Express UAE.

“The annual price adjustment enables us to further develop our infrastructure while allowing us to apply state-of-the-art technologies and individual control methods to ensure best-in-class client solutions. In response to the increased concern for logistics expertise due to growing item pamphlets in the e-commerce market, we have reinvested heavily in the renewal of our aircraft fleet as well as our global hub and gateway network. 

These and future improvements will help us, our customers and partners, make a significant addition to improving our ecological footprint.” Prices are adjusted every year by DHL Express, taking into factor inflation and currency dynamics such as administrative costs related to regulatory and security measures. 

These measures are restored by national and global authorities regularly in each of the more than 220 countries and regions that DHL Express serves. Depending on local circumstances, price changes will differ from country to country and will apply to all customers where contracts allow.
