Every shipment sent through DHL Express globally is screened in order to point out any anomaly or a possible link to any of the Denied Party lists we screen against or that could breach the country-based sanctions. Our mission is to ensure that we don’t carry any shipment from or to a Denied Party or, deliver any item which breaches the country-based sanctions.
To support with the screening process it is crucial to have full names (first, middle and last), as well as addresses and contact phone numbers. This will reduce the risk of a shipment being held for insufficient data to complete the screening.
For example, if DHL receives a shipment with incomplete receiver details then DHL may hold this shipment and request the receiver’s full name, including any middle names, address and contact details from you.
Receiver’s full name: Bill David Jones
- Incomplete name displayed on the waybill: B. Jones or Mr Jones
- Or even only initials : BDJ
