DHL Global Forwarding introduces online freight quotation and booking service
DHL Global Forwarding has introduced a new online freight quotation and booking service for international air freight transportation.
In a statement issued on Monday (4 December), DHL said that the new service rapidly creates competitive customer quotations based on door-to-door all-in rates and transit information.
The quotation and booking service connects to DHL Interactive, DHL Global Forwarding’s online customer portal, where it additionally provides shipment tracking and the creation and distribution of customized shipment reports.
The online service is now available for more than 40 countries, covering most key lanes and point pairs globally. It provides an immediate price for general cargo air freight up to 2,000 kilogrammes per shipment and offers two speeds of service through DHL’s Air Connect and Air Economy products. Customers can therefore select between different transit time options, giving them a choice between cost and speed of delivery.
DHL said that there will be a further roll-out to all major trade lanes in the coming months.
