DHL Express announces its 2018 rate adjustments in the UK

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

DHL Express has today (22 September) announced its annual general average price increase for its Time Definite International, Time Definite Domestic and Day Definite International products, effective 1 January.

In the UK, the average price increase will be 4.9%. (This is inline with the increase that FedEx announced at the start of this week.)

“The DHL Express network has been considerably strengthened over the last year, with the addition of new hubs with automated sorting capabilities and enhanced security measures in order to meet the requirements of our customers, partners and transport authorities,” said Ian Wilson, CEO, DHL Express UK.

“We have announced further investments in modernising our aviation fleet, introducing more green vehicles for inner city delivery and enhancing our ground infrastructure around the world. We have also deployed new solutions – such as On Demand Delivery and Parcel Lockers – to make the delivery process even more convenient for retailers and their customers in the dynamically growing e-commerce segment. Our annual price increase ensures that we can make the investments needed to meet our customers’ expectations and to continue to make them successful over the long-term.”
