What is DHL EasyShip?

DHL Easyship is a suite of shipping solutions that are a part of DHL's portfolio of automation tools. The EasyShip family ranges from software-only to highly-automated, server-based systems. Each EasyShip system offers a wide-range of DHL international products and value-added services, plus batch integration using data import/export utilities and real-time ODBC integration through DB Connect. If you have several shipments daily, contact our International Help Desk or your local shipping expert to see if you qualify to get EasyShip free of charge. If your request is approved, it takes approximately two weeks to get the system setup, installed and running in your facility.
