When you purchase a DHL label, it will look like the image below. Please print at least 3 copies of the shipping label and use it as follows:
- 1st COPY - PRINT AND ATTACH IT TO THE PARCEL: Affix the first copy to the package with adhesive tape, so that it is clearly visible.
- 2nd COPY - FOR THE CARRIER: Deliver the 2nd copy of the shipping document to the delivery driver if requested. If you wish, you can insert an additional copy of the shipping document inside the package so that your package is always identifiable in case of incorrect delivery or routing error by the transport company.
- 3rd COPY - FOR THE SENDER: Have the courier who collects the shipment sign the 3rd copy and keep it as proof of collection until delivery of the shipment.
Pick up and delivery time

- At the time of quote, you will see the first date available for collection of the shipment depending on the transport company. However, when ordering you can select an alternative date (using calendar) on which you want to pick up.
- The pickup time slot is shown to you when you place your order, when you select the pickup date. If you wish to indicate the closing times of the business, we will notify the courier, but we cannot guarantee that the courier driver will not make the changeover to the suspension or absence times that you have indicated.
- The courier is not required to call before the delivery. Leave a note on the intercom for the courier driver, if the name indicated in the order is not present or does not coincide with that on the bell or the intercom is temporarily defective.
