DHL Express set to raise prices

DHL Express has announced price adjustments that will take effect on 1 January 2023.

The average increase in Australia will be 7.9 per cent when compared to 2022.

Prices, according to DHL Express, are adjusted on an annual basis, taking into consideration inflation and currency dynamics as well as administrative costs related to regulatory and security measures.

These measures are being regularly updated by national and international authorities in each of the more than 220 countries and territories that DHL Express serves.

“So far, 2022 has been another turbulent year with a volatile market environment challenging global trade. However, we have proven our ability to offer stable and reliable services to our customers globally,” said Gary Edstein, CEO and Senior Vice President, DHL Express Australia.

“With the annual price adjustment, we are able to invest in our infrastructure and technology to ensure resilient, sustainable, and world-class customer solutions.”

Edstein said this included state-of-the-art aircraft and vehicles, in addition to expanding its hubs and gateways to meet increasing customer demand.

Further investments in sustainable solutions, such as sustainable aviation fuel and electric vehicles were also cited by Edstein.

Price adjustments are contingent upon local conditions and will vary from country to country, applying to all customers where contracts allow the company confirmed in a statement.
