Recently, Shiprocket launched its global shipping program where you can ship your products to 220+ countries across the globe at affordable rates via the best courier partners. One of the courier partners we have teamed up with is DHL e-commerce. All of us have heard of DHL being the leading carrier to carry our parcels from one country, state, city to another extremely efficiently. But for sellers, utilizing DHL like a regular service is not helpful as it does not benefit or guide them in any way.

Therefore, DHL has recently come up with DHL e-commerce, a segment of their business reserved for sellers alone to help them ship and sell their products to various buyers hassle-free manner.

What Is DHL E-commerce?

Shiprocket along with DHL e-commerce aims to bridge the gap between the buyer and the consumer. With the advent of technology, anybody in any corner of the world can easily connect. Therefore, owing to this international sales are expected to increase by 23%. Moreover, shipping acts as the physical connection between buying and selling across the world and DHL aims to improve that. With flexible delivery and location options, easier return procedures, Shiprocket makes e-commerce convenient for both buyers and sellers.
