DHL Shipping

What does DHL shipping tracking mean?

Shipment or DHL shipping refers to the movement of goods, whether they be private parcels, eCommerce packages, or bulk B2B shipments, from one place to another. The demand for the ability to move goods over greater and greater distances has continued to grow, and along with it so has the ability to monitor the movement of these goods. This is what is today known as shipping tracking, and DHL shipping tracking concerns the tracking of DHL goods specifically. The same would apply with other major couriers, including FedEx, DPD, TNT, UPS, China Post and so on.

DHL shipping tracking was originally only put in place to help the company keep track of the flow of parcels it was handling, but they soon realized that customers also wanted access to DHL shipping tracking information. DHL shipping tracking is now offered on all shipments and parcel posted with DHL, whether by standard or express, with the ability to track parcels worldwide becoming not only commonplace but increasingly sophisticated.

One of the ways in which tracking continues to develop is through new multi-courier tracking options. This has grown out of the need for consumers and businesses to track parcels that are handled by multiple couriers. This is particularly common where international parcels are concerned, which pass through a number of logistics companies and carriers during transit.

When should you use Ship24 for DHL shipping tracking?

Tracking DHL shipping through Ship24 is important if any of the following applies to the way you send or receive parcels:

  • You send/receive cross-border shipments or send parcels over long distances: Often major couriers have partnerships with other international logistics companies or local delivery (known as last-mile) couriers in countries in which they do not have a presence. This can mean that accessing DHL shipping tracking information is not always available, of course, unless you are tracking through Ship24!
  • You are unsure of the courier: If you are unsure who will be handling your parcel at any point in the journey (as even if the parcel is the responsibility of DHL, transportation services from other companies may be utilized and tracking consequently compromised. Therefore, you need to use a multicarrier tracking service, such as Ship24, in order to be assured that you can continue tracking your parcel in such circumstances.
