Why is DHL Express the best option for shipping to and from Europe?

Fast. Reliable. Convenient.

Europe is one of the globe’s most influential continents with a diverse landscape of businesses opportunities. DHL Express has been providing service to Europe since 1974 and has developed long-term relationships with Customs and government agencies to help you make the most of every opportunity in this economic powerhouse.

For more than 25 years Preferred Shipping, DHL’s oldest authorized reseller, has been helping our customers discover and navigate new markets and the complexities of exporting or importing.

Discover the Preferred Shipping & DHL Express difference in Europe


Imports: A variety of 1 day delivery import services are available from key cities in Europe (such as Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Dublin, Geneva and London) to major U.S. cities

Exports: Exporting services include 2 and 3 day delivery to key cities in Europe from major U.S. cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and New York

Reliability + Convenience

Customs Control: A DHL Express Europe controls the complexity of the Customs clearance processes “in-house” instead of contracting a third party. Local DHL experts allow for more control of the Customs process resulting in faster clearance times

Central Location: The DHL Express network has 40 years of experience providing express delivery services across the continent of Europe, and with a centrally located global hub located in Leipzig, Germany, shipping to and from Europe has never been quicker, easier or more reliable.
