DHL track package

How do I get a DHL track package number?

A DHL track package number is assigned to every DHL parcel which is sent with the German company, which is headquartered in Bonn. When you purchase DHL package delivery services you will find that either on your parcel receipt (if you send from a DHL drop-off point), or through the contact details you have provided, such as by mobile (by text message or via the special DHL WhatsApp group) or email.

Once you have your DHL track package number, you just need to head to the Ship24 homepage where you can enter it and get immediate results on the latest tracking updates. You don't need to log in or signup or enter any personal information about yourself or your package. The universal, multicarrier tracking platform provided by Ship24 automatically identifies the parcel through the DHL track package number and delivers all of the relevant information.

How do I get DHL track package functionality?

There are two ways you can get DHL track package functionality. The first would be directly through DHL, but this can sometimes not be the ideal way to ensure you can track a DHL package. In fact, many people run into issues with DHL tracking, such as if the goods are sent overseas (international parcels) and are handed over to other couriers for the final leg, or last mile, of their journey. Others can also get lost on the DHL website trying to find the tracking section, or not know the relevant information when it comes to searching for a DHL package.

Ship24 was launched by a team of shipping experts who were passionate about finding a resolution for these problems and launch a universal shipment tracking website that would offer true end-to-end tracking.

How long does it take for DHL to update parcel tracking?

The time it takes for Ship24 to be able to show updates is in as close to real-time as possible and as soon as the new tracking event is updated on the DHL website it will also be updated on Ship24.

How long does the average DHL track package delivery take?

The average time for an international DHL Express delivery is around 2 working days between most major destinations, with standard services taking a little longer. Most international parcels are delivered in around 1-6 working days.

Although all parcels sent with DHL should have an estimated time of delivery by the time they are dispatched, the best way to DHL track package progress is by following your parcel on Ship24.

With Ship24, both buyers, sellers and individuals sending packages can get the latest location and status of their DHL package in as near to real-time as possible. Knowing this information can help users better predict the actual estimated time of arrival, as as long as their parcel is progressing as expected between transit points then it will most likely be delivered on the day specified by DHL. However, if your parcel is held up at customs or delayed because of adverse weather conditions, a shipping blockage, national holidays (in some cases) or otherwise, you can be informed first when you DHL track package with Ship24.

Why does my DHL track package number give me the wrong information?

If when you search for DHL track package information with your DHL tracking number and you think it is providing you with the wrong information, it could be because of a number of reasons. Firstly, you should double check that you have entered the correct DHL tracking number. The tracking numbers can be tricky, as they are a varied number of letters and numbers but each number is important for identifying your package specifically so make sure you haven't missed one! The best option is to copy and paste the number where possible.

If you are sure the number is right, it could be the case that DHL has recycled the tracking number. This sometimes happens due to the sheer volume of parcels which are handled by DHL. In this case, check again in a short while to see if the system has updated or alternatively you should contact DHL directly.

Sometimes there is a processing delay which can cause DHL track package numbers to not show any results, although this is rare. Again, customers are encouraged to try searching for for their DHL parcel again after a short while on the Ship24 website before contacting DHL directly.
