Online tool increases transparency of DHL’s shipping costs

DHL Freight launched a new freight quotation tool. This online service allows prospects and customers to receive price quotes and transit times for their road freight shipments up to 2,500 kg quickly. The service is available under in 23 languages and primarily aimed at small to mid-sized businesses, but is also available to non-clients. The freight quotation tool provides a complete overview and cost estimate for an international road freight shipment without requiring the user to register first. This DHL Freight Quotation Tool is available in 28 European countries in local language.

In just two steps, users can get a quick instant freight price quote from DHL. To get started, the user enters the area codes of the shipment’s origin and destination. After adding the size, number of pieces, weight to be shipped the user instantly receives a price quote and transit time estimate. He can thereby choose between DHL Freight’s LTL standard service EuroConnect and Eurapid, the LTL premium product, offering priority treatment of shipments and extremely short delivery times. Only at this point, after receiving all relevant cost information on the shipments and its insurance have already been provided, are contact details required to actually commission the shipment. The request is automatically submitted to customer service, whose representatives will contact the customer to finalise the shipment.

With about 360,000 employees in more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, DHL connects people and businesses securely and reliably, enabling global trade flows. DHL is part of Deutsche Post DHL Group. The Group generated revenues of more than EUR 60 billion in 2017.
