Shippo Adds Support for DHL eCommerce
Shippo users can now access DHL eCommerce alongside the other shipping providers Shippo supports.
DHL eCommerce is a discounted postage partnership program created between DHL and USPS. Packages are first pre-sorted within DHL's eCommerce distribution centers, expediting the process, then inserted into the mail stream for final delivery via USPS.
DHL eCommerce provides various service levels for businesses based on specific package weight and dimensions. Packages are sorted in DHL facilities and delivered by USPS. For expedited services, the estimated delivery time is 2-5 days, and for ground services, the estimated delivery is from 3-8 days.
DHL is also an approved carrier of "dangerous goods" such as lithium batteries, perfumes and some electronic equipment. With DHL eCommerce merchants can send items that are considered dangerous at a much lower shipping rate.
