Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between DHL Express standard service and special delivery?

  • With Express standard service, shipments follow specific routes using DHL's special planes or vans.
  • For special delivery, we find a suitable solution for transporting the shipment via scheduled flights, directly to the destination using vans or trucks, and if necessary, even by charter flights, and other flexible solutions according to the customer's needs.

When should I choose special delivery service?

  • When DHL Express standard service is not fast or flexible enough.
  • For domestic transportation.
  • When I want to send hazardous goods, but I lack a special permit.
  • When dealing with heavy or oversized cargo.
  • When I want to send from airport to airport.
  • When pickup or delivery occurs on weekends or holidays.

Is the price for Special Delivery higher than Express standard service?

  • Not necessarily. For special delivery, there is no fixed price list; the price is determined based on the customer's needs and the available transportation options (case by case).

How can I track the movement of my shipment with special delivery?

  • Since special delivery involves the use of scheduled flights, vans, and trucks that are not part of DHL Express and are not connected to a tracking system, it is not possible to track shipments on the DHL website. Information about the movement of the shipment and confirmation of delivery will be provided by DHL's special delivery specialist, whose contact details you will receive when placing the order.
