Until further notice, DHL Express will not accept shipments of military items subject to national export (or extra-territorial re-export) controls. Customers will be notified as soon as the suspension is lifted.

This suspension does not include domestic shipments or shipments of licensed dual-use items.

If you are uncertain whether your shipment contains military items subject to national export controls, please contact your national licensing authority.

Against the backdrop of the global Covid-19 outbreak, DHL business operations are being continuously adapted to mitigate potential impacts.

Given the significant impacts of COVID-19 on the global aviation industry and in order to help us maintain reliable and high quality delivery services for you and your customers, DHL Express introduced a temporary Emergency Situation Surcharge in early April.

Since the onset of this global pandemic, DHL teams have been working around the clock, adapting and adjusting the operations of our global network to align with new developments, regulatory requirements and constant changes in capacity and demand.

ADJUSTMENT OF THE EMERGENCY SITUATION SURCHARGE

As market conditions continue to evolve with the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the Emergency Situation Surcharge will be adjusted downwards effective July 1, 2020.

This adjustment reflects changes in market dynamics and air capacity availability. Given expected reductions to our additional costs out of China and Hong Kong, we will make a downward adjustment for the following origin/destination combinations:

  • China to Europe/Americas/Rest of World: from 130 RUB p/kg to 70 RUB p/kg
  • China/Hong Kong to Australia/New Zealand: from 130 RUB p/kg to 120 RUB p/kg

Below, you will find the details of the adjusted Emergency Situation Surcharge per origin and destination combination.
