DHL eCommerce shipping times
DHL eCommerce can be dropped off at any local USPS Post Office where it will be scanned in and you will be given a receipt. Ship from the USA to almost anywhere in the world in 7-12 days to Europe or 11-22 days to the rest of the world. When you book DHL via our shipping calculator you will receive a shipping label to print off.
The DHL shipping label will come with USPS branding on to take the package to a central US sort location, and there a DHL eCommerce label will be applied to get the package to the final recipient address.
The label provided by Parcel Monkey will have the delivery address as Jamaica, NY instead of the recipient. This address is where our courier partner sorts the packages, prints off the international shipping label and sends safely overseas with DHL.
You must attach your shipping label to the package along with any relevant customs documents. These documents should be attached to the outside of the box in a plastic wallet or envelope - or an envelope marked as customs.
Simply then hand over your package at your local USPS Post Office on a date that is convenient for you. DHL will ship your package overseas and the local Postal Operator in the destination will complete the delivery.
For some destinations, the recipient may need to go and pick up the package from the local Post Office. This means you should always ensure a local contact number is provided for the recipient.
