Providing better flexibility and choice to customers, DHL Economy Select service offers cost savings of up to 30 percent, especially for shipments of over 45 kg. Unlike DHL’s premium guaranteed Time-Definite service for critical shipments, DHL Economy Select is suited to non-time sensitive shipments with a transit period of two to four business days, depending on location.
With DHL Economy Select, the shipments are handled at the same level of service appropriated to other smaller, time-sensitive parcels, allowing customers to benefit from full end-to-end checkpoint visibility and simplified paperwork due to the provision of a single invoice with no hidden transportation costs upon delivery.
“As the market leading Express player, we’re mindful of the current economic climate and have developed a product tailored to meet our customers’ needs. With the near-term economic outlook, businesses are looking at every aspect of their operating costs. With up to 30 per cent cost savings for shipments over 45kg, customers can now send their shipments at a lower price with the security and reliability of our premier Express services”, said Craig Grossgart, DHL Express Asia Pacific.
Since its launch, DHL Economy Select has been widely received among customers in India . Driven by the strong demand for the service, it’s timely for us to extend DHL Economy Select to inbound shipments in April 2009.
