Online freight quotations, bookings and transport insurance made simple

The user-friendly tool allows instant access to air and ocean freight quotes with a minimum of information required. The availability of transparent air and ocean freight quotes allow customers to compare rates and lead times to select the best option.

For air freight customers there are two booking options that cover general cargo up to 2,000 kg per shipment. The first option is DHL Air Connect, an efficient solution with a typical delivery time of 3-5 days, the second option is DHL Air Economy, a cost effective option that uses alternative carriers and routes to deliver in about 5-7 days. For ocean freight, instant quotes are generated for LCL shipments up to 10,000 kg/ 20cbm per shipment. DHL Global Forwarding is one of the first freight forwarders that offer an insurance option with its online quotation and booking service. Customers simply select the right transport mode and product and enter the good’s value to calculate the insurance.

Customers can also save quotes and share them with selected recipients via e-mail. Quotes are valid for up to 30 days and can be accessed for booking at a later stage during this time. Customers may also request a quote for special cargo, including dangerous goods, lithium batteries and non-stackable cargo, which is provided in a separate email from DHL.

Tracking information and an overview of the ordered service is sent to customers via an email upon booking. Shippers and consignees can complete their purchases using all common pre-paid, collect and cross-trade terms.

The new myDHLi Quote & Book helps customers make the right decisions in terms of transport mode and transit time.
