Pieces that are not correctly packed, could become damaged or cause damage to other pieces or equipment. For this reason, as of today, all shipments and all pieces must be correctly packed. This also means that DHL Express will only accept shipments that are correctly packed. With these packing requirements you can be assured that your goods are delivered in great condition.

Size and weight limitations
As of 1st September, 2018, a size and weight limitation applies for international time definite shipments that consist of several pieces. For each piece, the maximum piece scale weight must not exceed 300 kilograms and the piece length must not exceed 300 centimeters. DHL Express will no longer accept shipments containing pieces that exceed these size and weight limitations. The maximum combined weight of all pieces remains unchanged and must not exceed the 1000 kilograms shipment limitation
