DHL to hike shipping rates in Bangladesh


DHL Express yesterday said its average shipment price in Bangladesh would go up by 4.9 percent compared to that in 2018.

The price increase will be effective from January 1, 2019, the world’s leading international express services provider said in a statement.

“The annual price adjustment allows us to further strengthen our infrastructure, ensuring best-in-class customer solutions by using innovative technologies and individual delivery processes,” said Md Miarul Haque, country manager of DHL Express Bangladesh.

DHL Express adjusts its prices annually, taking into account inflation, currency dynamics and other rising costs, such as expenses related to compliance with enhanced security regulations, in each of the more than 220 countries and territories that it serves, the company said.

Haque said DHL Express has been investing significantly in its international network to meet the highest expectations and offer better services to customers globally.“Our aim is to deliver continuous improvement in quality to meet our customers’ needs even more.”

He said in the last few weeks and months, the company has particularly focused on investing in hub expansions and new gateways in many markets and thereby boosted shipment processing capacities per hour and reduced transit times.

“We are always working on upgrading our regional and intercontinental air fleets. We are opening new facilities with automated sorting technologies and introducing innovative e-commerce service solutions for our customer worldwide.”
