Let’s debunk some commonly believed assumptions about logistics and Express services:
Assumption 1: Underestimating the importance of logistics for your business
Running a successful business has a lot to do with getting your logistics strategy right. In a variety of sectors, companies gain a real advantage over their peers by implementing a comprehensive logistics strategy for their supply chain.
And underestimating its importance can lead to severe consequences especially for the e-commerce sector. A variety of delivery options and easy returns can boost any online shop.
Assumption 2: Forgetting about the added value of Express
Express shipping adds a true value to your supply chain or delivery process. In particular, the world of e-commerce can only win by offering Express shipping. Online shoppers are ready to pay more for a premium delivery solution and expect to see an Express delivery option. In fact, retailers who offer premium shipping grow 60% faster than those who don’t.

But who exactly needs Express solutions? We offer solutions for a variety of different industries: medicine and health care, financial services, manufacturing, fashion, IT, trade shows and many more. All rely on our services.
Assumption 3: Thinking there is only one shipping solution
Actually, we offer several shipping solutions. With DHL Express Worldwide your shipment arrives on the next possible business day. Our most popular product delivers your parcels before 9 am, 12 am or by the end of the next business day. DHL Same Day holds a solution to all super urgent requests, or special requirements. The DHL Medical Express product makes sure vital goods are in safe hands. We ship medical goods for the life-science industry focusing on the perfect timing and careful handling. Another business focused product is DHL Globalmail which delivers international business correspondence. And then there is DHL Express Easy, the hassle-free service for irregular shippers.

Online shop owners learn how easy e-commerce can be when integrating DHL services into their e-store. Moreover, our On-Demand-Delivery tool simplifies shipping process for everyone. It gives receivers the ability to request delivery to their workplace, their neighbor’s house or a collection point like the POST PackUp 24/24 stations.
Is it just the delivery then? No, we have so much more to offer. Our optional services range from packaging, shipping insurance, mailing preparations to customs services. In addition, we offer real-time tracking solutions online.
Assumption 4: Environmentally-friendly shipping is difficult
We want to operate our services with zero emissions by 2050! That’s the ambitious goal of DHL Go Green. This initiative aims to build energy efficient warehouses, optimize transport routes and train our employees to become green champions. But that’s far from all.
