DHL was founded in 1969, originally to provide a courier service from the Continental
United States and Hawaii. In 2002 the company was acquired by Deutsche Post. DHL
is known for its ability to offer a shipping service worldwide for both freight
and packages. One of the reasons for this ability to ship truly worldwide is that,
now being German owned, it can ship to Cuba, North Korea or Iraq as DHL is not affected
by U.S. embargoes.
DHL owns European Air Transport, which acts as its air freight supplier in Europe.
In the UK, these operations are carried out by DHL Air. DHL Air runs 22 Boeing 757SFs
and operates from East Midlands airport, just outside Nottingham. In the U.S, much
of DHLs air freight activity is carried out by Air Express International, the largest
American air freight provider, which is part of the same group as DHL.
DHL operates as a provider in international express delivery, air cargo and freight
and overland transport. Their operations include single parcel shipment, express
document delivery and full supply chain management and execution.

Another great thing about using DHL (or any of our other recommended couriers) is
that they offer a DHL tracking service that
means you know exactly where your parcel is at all times. So if your parcel is particularly
valuable or it needs to get there by a specific date, we’ll help you feel
confident that it is safe and on its way and you’ll know as soon as it gets
there. This means you can also let the recipient know accurately which day their
gift or parcel should arrive so they can be expecting it. All you need to do is
enter your unique parcel number and click ‘track my parcel’, it’s
as simple as that.
DHL are the perfect solution to your parcel delivery needs, so to get a
quick quote, simply enter the dimensions of your parcel and the intended
destination and we’ll give you an idea of what it will cost to send it there.
